    I seem to have some sort of sexual dysfunction, which is impacting on my relationship. I do not know if this is normal or atypical. I am a female aged 19 years. I am not anorgasmic. My desire for sexual activity is very inconsistent. Sometimes I have intense, persistent sexual arousal with desire for sexual contact, that does not cease after multiple orgasms. At other times, a strong aversion to sex with zero desire. These phases usually last 24-48 hours, with limited stabilization in between. This inconsistency is causing significant psychological stress, for both my partner and I. Is this indicative of a problem? What can I do to achieve a balanced libido.

    As much as you masterbate - the first couple of times you are never really prepared for sex. I lost my virginity late in life, when I was 21, prior to that I had masterbated with toys, and my hands, etc. This is a terrible answer - but it takes a few times for women, I think for women to get comfortable with that feeling of a penis inside of them. I htink fingering yourself, and having your partner find yourself is a good start - but that feeling it takes time. At the same time - when you start having sex when you're young - you have no idea what to do, and in most cases neither does the guy you sleep with - unless they are older and experienced. It takes some time to find your fitting - and something that I didn't do and I encourage - is having sex with someone your comfortable with makes a difference in your comfort and getting more comfortable with sex. As always, practice safe sex.

    Over the last 12mths or so my partner and I have had a diminishing sex life. His labido has reduced considerably. I am in my 30's and he is In his mid 40's. We desperately want a family but the loss of desire creates an obvious problem. He is tired a lot of the time but otherwise healthy. Blood tests revealed that his testosterone levels are a level 7 which is apparently low. What does this mean? And can anything can be done? please help as it is putting a lot of pressure on the relationship

    Hi I'm 26 and been with my boyfreid for over 3yrs now. I have totally lost my desire for sex and it has been at least a year. Sometimes if there's a lot of oral towards me I can push myself into feeling something but it never leads to intercourse because it always painful. However I just have no desire and dread the day my boyfriend can't be patient anymore. It's really putting pressure on our relationship. I've spoken to the doctor and nurse several times but they always turn me away and say it's a relationship problem or we are not doing enough foreplay which is why they think the sex is painful. I used to have such a high sex drive and now there's nothing there. Please please help me. I can't stand it anymore. I'm 26! Low sex drive shouldn't be an issue! :(

    Your doctor and nurse are ignorant. Look at the programme of 26th June ( a young woman had suffered painful sex for a year, was told it was psychological, of course it wasn't). I was told the same thing repeatedly all my life and I only found a cure a few years ago. I'm appalled that after all these years medics are still unaware of a vaginal condition that can be treated with hormonal cream, usually only given to menopausal women. Change your doctor, ask to see a specialist. Not only will the cream deal with the pain, as it changes your hormones it will re-activate your desire. It's worked for me - I'm 71!!!!

    Hi I have had weight loss surgery and lost 9 stone 9lb's, however since losing the weight, I now have excess skin on my stomach and due to weight loss on my breasts they are very saggy and to add insult to injury have inverted nipples which seem to have got worse since the weight loss, I am unsure whether or not to apply to my GP as I don't know if the NHS would allow this.

    I'm 19 and have never had sex before, but did masturbate often however have stopped now because of what i'm going through its been 2 months. My doctor prescribed me co-amoxiclav because i was having pain in the tube above my right testicle. the pain for that has now gone. however i still have pain in my right testicle, going to the right side of my bladder and inner right thigh. My semen also comes out cold. another thing is when i need to urinate i just feel pain in my bladder and can hold it in for ages if i have to. my doctor has done a urine sample and has found no infection. also i have had a loss of sexual attraction/desire, before all this i was unbelievably horny all the time, however now it is virtually none existent and i find it hard to get an erection. My doctor is no help in this matter, please help me or give me an idea of what it could be. Thank you!!

    Maybe you should ask for another opinion or to see a specialist. You doctor will take you seriously if you make him/her believe you are suffering. I'm not medically trained but have found a polite request to see a urologist or someone more qualified in this area is a reasonable request if your doctor cannot find the answer. Do keep trying. ;D

    I am 51, still with very regular periods and no sign of menopause (had all the tests) apart from excessive sweating the night before my period arrives. But I have lost all sexual desire since a couple of years - FSAD. It kind of crept up on me, until I realised I have zero sensation in the vaginal region and breasts. I have an aversion to sex in my head and have no desire whatsoever. (I used to be highly sexual). If Im having sex, which is increasingly rare, its vaguely pleasant but not pleasurable and has no build up to an eventual orgasm. I have been to many specialists, to research HRT and to discuss the lack of sensation and possible nerve damage. None have come up with any analysis or solutions at all and because Im still having regular periods am reluctant to try HRT. It seems to me that the issue has to do with the brain producing whatever the precusors are to getting sexually aroused and/or nerve damage. Im really sad about this as I feel I have lost my identity as a woman and cannot hope to form a relationship if I am not sexually interested. It may be a symptom of the menopause but its something that women dont seem to talk about.Anyone got any new views on this?

    I have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 3 months ago . But for over 12 months I have had erectile dysfunction and total loss of labedo . I know this is probably related but my sex drive and desire has totally gone. I very rarely get an erection and I have no interest or desire for sex or masturbation. Its starting to get me down as I use to have a healthy normal sex life and all interest in that kind of thing has totally disappeared. Any help or advice welcome. Im 45 and feel as if that part of my life is over.

    I am 38 and have a 3 year old and 16 month. Since having both children, especially the second, I have experienced pain. This isn't just confined to pain on penetration as I experience pain when I've had exams. Am due a smear test in May and am dreading it. Added to this I have since having my second child a massive loss of desire which is leading to problems within my marriage. Have had counselling but things haven't improved. Am at a loss as to what to do with either of these issues

    I am 20 years of age and have been with my bf for a year now. For a couple of months now I have had no desire to have sex, I don't get turned on and sex just does not appeal to me. I am on the Depo and think that this may cause the loss in sex drive but do I risk going back onto the pill or do I keep going with the injection?

    I had that problem when I had the implant, I would suggest going back on the pill, for me it was awful, my poor bf only got to see me at weekends then and was getting very grumpy, going back on the pill was amazing! (you don't know how much you love your sex drive til its gone) If you have a problem with the pill you were on then ask your doctor to change it. And if like me you forget it sometimes... set an alarm on your phone for it and get your bf to remind you too

    Ii had the injection 4 times and on the 4th i got my period for about 2 months non-stop and ever since i have had issues with sex, its so painful now, and this was caused by the depo injection. i suggest go back to the pill, although inconvenient it will save you pain and well a build up of periods all coming at once if you know what i mean.

    Hi. I have 28 years old and I have problems with sex about 2 years ago. I have pain during sex and after. That caused me fear to have sex and loss of desire. My boyfriend is very patient but I don't want to lost him... Thank you.

However for the past year I have not had a sexual desire .I am on the pill microgynon 30. my boyfriend is 21 years old. he has a high sex drive and I just don’t have a desire for sex at all any more. we used to have sex a lot and I would desire it, but now I never want it. this causes my boyfriend to feel inadequate. however it is not him. I don’t have a sexual desire and I don’t orgasm. however there is no pain. i still find my boyfriend attractive and we have a strong relationship together. this is the first time i have ever heard that women have a sexual dysfunctions. I do not feel that I would benefit from Psychosexual Counselling is there any medication that I could use? thanks Lisa p.s its nice to know that there are other women who are going through the same thing.

I wish and pray everyday that I could have the want to want to have sex. It is destroying my life, its like am sexually dead. I feel nothing when I have sex no hormones no turn on no nothing. Been to my gp and asked him to do a hormone test he discovered I have low testosterone lol so he referred me to specialist and she did the same test and told me same thing and that there was nothing I could do about it and told me to see a shrink. I have no desire for sex, I never get turned on, I never think about sex in a sexual way. the only way I think about sex it , I wish I would want it. am very confused, 33 year old women that has never ever felt what it is like to be horny or have an orgasm or anything. am married with 2 kids.

    My fiance also had a C-section. I find her sexier than anyone I've ever been with! I think of it as a character builder, a battle scar, if you will. If he truly loves you, it won't even matter. In fact, I find that a woman with a C-section retains her "tightness," as it were. Just give it some time, maybe try some libido vitamins. Above all, try to love yourself. That has to happen first before you can be comfortable in bed.

    The sympomatology above describes me to a T..Despite using viagra, which works well on the rare occasions that I actually feel desire..It's a problem as I'm with a lady I love very much but my lack of desire means I shy away from demonstrating my impotence yet again..which means she thinks I don't love her enough..I'm just 60 and smoke AND drink..

    Hi. I am 35 and ever since I had my first baby nearly 3 years ago, I have lost my sex drive. Before having the baby I always enjoyed sex and basically couldn't get enough but now I have no desire to have sex at all and when I do, I don't enjoy it. I have been to see my GP and had a blood test done and it came back as normal. I really don't know the reason for this extreme change in my sex life. It is effecting my relationship with my husband and is putting pressure on me. Can you please help me? Are there any drugs in the market for female to use to improve their sex desire??

    Hi I'm 20 years old, my boyfriend and I live together and have been together for 3 years. I've lost all desire to have sex. I still feel attracted to him but it seems like every time sex comes into the equation i just want it to stop. Can this be caused by stress or is there something wrong with me? I am on medication dihydrocodeine and pregabalin for a kidney and nerve problem, some of the side affects listed for these are loss of sex drive, could that be it? I feel extremely guilty and don't want my boyfriend to lose confidence. We are only young and I feel like there must be something wrong with me

    Hmm. It could be physiological. I would talk to your doctor just in case because of your medications. But if you are feeling down about yourself or your appearance that could be it too. But even so a doctor visit is a good idea. Hope this helps.

    I have been with my husband for four years and in the last three years I have noticed a loss of desire for sex, but mainly pain during and after sex. I have been tested for STI's which I don't have. I have skin irritation and used aqueaous cream to wash my vagina. I can only wear cotton underwear but still find that this makes me sore. I often sweat between my legs and get vaginal discharge. It hurts to pee after sex and deep penetration is painful too, often resulting in tears of the vaginal opening. Please help me to understand and treat this as I am only 24 and would like a normal active and pain free sex life.

    I just saw the video and your comment and I need to tell you I HAD prostate cancer and I was treated with an alternative prostate cancer treatment called Hyperthermia, in combination with low-dose-radiation. Since no surgery, chemotherapy or high dose radiation are used, the side effects were none. I do not have erectile dysfunction, incontinence, and i have no loss of sexual desire. Actually my libido increased after the Hyperthermia treatment.

    I just read your comment and I highly recommend you to to the Hyperthermia combined with low radiation dose treatment. I had prostate cancer and this non invasive alternative prostate cancer treatment not only saved my prostate, but I was saved from the terrible sexual side effects that conventional therapies have: loss of sexual desire, no more erections (erectile dysfunction), diarrhea, and incontinence. You can find Hyperthermia clinics in Europe and USA

    I would like to know more about the mental and emotional problems connected with the menopause - for instance loss of confidence, connected with loss of mental agility, memory loss etc. Is there anything I can be prescribed? I was told by my GP that HRT can only be given for two years, and she will not continue to prescribe this although it did help
