    I'm 20 years old and have been with my boyfriend for three years now. About six months in, I went on the pill and completely lost my libido. I changed pill for other reasons, and now have the contraceptive implant, but my libido hasn't returned. I was hoping that trying different forms of hormonal contraception would make a difference, but they haven't, and I'd ideally like to stay on the contraception, so was wondering if anyone has any advice as to how to get my libido back?

    Hi i am 45 yrs old and had a hysterectomy 10 years ago ovaries left. i was told at the time i would likely have an early menopause, i am experiencing hot flushes and have absolutely no libido i am taking citalopram anti depressants but would like to come off these at some point however they do seem to keep my hot flushes at bay but dont help with the libido. I am not keen on the HRT solution either because of my "young age" Does anyone know of any other solutions that work.

    I am a 52 year old, healthy/active lady. Life is fantastic apart from my libido level being at 0...My GP has taken blood tests for hormonal changes, yes its been confirmed i'm now classed as menopausal. I have accepted this new chapter of life, unfortunately my libido level has cost me my relationship. As you can imagine this has left me feeling anything but a woman and why would any other man bother with me ever again. I eat a very healthy diet, excerise, sleep well, no other health issues. I do hope you can give me some advise.

    hi, i am 37 an have the same problem. But your gyni can give you a testosterone implant in your tummy, doesn't hurt much as they numb you, just leaves you abit tender. Or your doctor can give you patches of testosterone which should give you back a libido as its the testosterone that your body is not making anymore that gives us our sexdrive ! As long as your blood pressure is ok. My blood pressure has gone mental since i have become menapausal so i can't do the patches, an for some unknown an rare reason, my body spat out the implant. I now have a very understanding hubby, an once every couple of months he makes sure i climax, although it is an issue that we only have sex every 3-5 wks. So don't think you will be alone forever, there are some good an caring men left out there, it took me till now to find 1 but feeeewwwww, i have :) Best wishes to you Aly!

    Your doc can give u testosterone patches or ur gyni can give u a testosterone implant. One of these should give u some testosterone back into ur body, thats wat gives us our sexdrive! An there are some good men left out there, i suffer like you but have been lucky enough to find a caring man, don't give up on love, theres someone out there for you Aly!!!!

    I amm 58 and until about 5 years ago enjoyed a lifely sex life. Now it's only about once every 2 months. Although we use lots of lube it's very painful when my husband enters me and afterwards I'm left with lesions/blisters on one side of the entrance to my vagina. They take 4/5 days to clear up. It's as if I'm allergic to my husband. Also my libido is non-existent. I have an under-active thyroid and am told that this is one reason why my libido is lower. I take Livial HRT tablets. I've had lots of hormone treatment in the past and now only want to use the mininum. I've tried HRT gel but it wasn't convenient to use. I also use vagifem cream a couple of times a week. I have myself checked regularly and don't have any infections. Can anyone help me please?

    Hi ive had Chronic urticaria for about 9 months now and since then my life has been hell. It has severely lowered the quaility of my life as i am a 16 year old who is in love with sport and it is a passion which i hope to pursue as a future. I now struggle to walk to school, sit in a warm room, or next to a radiator i have quit Football, Tennis, cycling and running and many other hobbies whihc i love. I cant go to parties or have fun at the beach on hot days with friends. This couldnt have come at a worse time, i took P.E and i couldnt take part in practical which lowered my grade and now fear not being able to take part in higher. I have seen many doctors, a few homiopaths ( think thats how you say it) and a few specialists in dermatoligy and their answer is more medication which isnt working! I beg if anyone has any advice or anything please help me I just want to get my life back on track and enjoy it to the fullest. Thanks and sorry for poor spelling.

    Hi there, I am 26 yr old & the same has happened to me. My partner is understanding but admits to being paranoid that I have went off him. Also, I have depression and use a low dose of antidepressants. It's worrying and I am scared it will never return. I enjoy sex but it's getting round to it that's the problem. I feel panicky and only seem to manage after I've had a drink. I wish I could feel normal again.

    Hi, I am 43 years old, married with a 21 months old baby boy. 4 years before falling pregnant, back in 2004, I noticed a huge loss of sexual drive. Then I also noticed that I was lactating and because both my husband and I were trying for a baby, my GP put me on a course of hormone so that my level of prolactin could be brought down. Our GP also explained that this high level of prolactin could cause a loss of libido and to make sure there was no tumour in my brain, I had a MRI wich appeared normal. 6 years later my libido is not getting any better especially now that I am breasffeeding. My relationship with my husband is at a all time low and I have no sexual drive at all. My questions to you is 1)what level of prolactin should I have before considering taking a hormone treatment to bring down the level of prolactin 2)is there any other treatment to bring back my sexual drive? 3) will counselling help? thank you Abbi

    I had bee taking anti-depressants for around a year when my doctor suggested increasing the dosage to see if it would help me. A few days after i found that sex with my boyfriend was really painful. My libido had dropped drastically, and i began to dread the thought of sex. I read up on alot of websites and found that this problem can be linked to medication, specifically my type of anti-depressant. I lowered the dosage of my pills back to the original dose and sex went back to normal within a few weeks. Thought i would share my story so that others know that medication can cause female sexual disorder Gwen :]

    I've been off Microgynon (The pill) for over a month after it made me completely lose my libido within the first week of taking it. It's affecting mine and my boyfriends relationship because I can barely maintain any sort of arousal for more than 5 minutes at a time, we've tried sex toys, food to help libido and even drops and tablets from Ann Summers, I'm actually ready to give up, i feel horrible for making my boyfriend feel so useless, he understands it isn't his fault but it makes me feel down. I need help :/

    Hi Vicky, I have had the same problem but for about 5 years now, I was on the injection for other a year but found sex very painful so I came off of it. Ever since I have never had the same feeling back. Its frustrating and embarrassing! Your not the only one with this problem, if you find a solution, let me know asap!!!

    Hi Vicky, unfortunately I have the same problem. I've tried so many different types of pill including Microgynon and I've even tried the implant but all of them seem to make my sex drive pretty much non existent. However I have found that being in a more comfortable environment helps and also doing things to reduce stress levels such as regular exercise and eating the right food. They may be simple changes but it has made a huge difference for me. I hope this helps.

    Hey, my names Kelsi. I`m age 20 and have been with my partner 4 years. I started having sex at the age of 16, I had an amazing sex life to start with, from always wanting to have sex to now never having sex at all. I had a great sex life with my partner but I had extremely painful periods. I then started taking Microgynon 30 as it was recommended to ease my periods by my docter. My periods became much lighter and comfortable but as a year went on..my libido drastically decreased to nothing..this was almost 2 years ago now. I now have no libdo or desire to do anything sexual and if ever i do have sex, its too painful to do so. I have had various tests, blood tests, hormone tests, pelvic scans, tried different lubes, tried doing just forplay, came off the pill for 6 months to see if my libido would come back but it didnt, now ive swapped pills to Yasmin and still nothing has changed. Everything came back fine with every test. I`m writting to ask if there`s any kind of pill in which i can take to get my libido back? Please help me, I don`t know where else to turn.

    Why is my doctor so against h r t patches. I suffer from hot flushes,stress incontinence, loss of libido and vaginal dryness. I am 65and had a full hysterectomy age 42 . I was on HRT for about 15 years without any ill effects but my doctor decided 2 years ago that she was not going to prescribe it for me because of the published risks ( which have turned out to be a very small increase for HRT users).Vaginal dryness and loss of libido are so severe that sex is a thing of the past and to even try intercourse is so painful. My husband is very understanding where sex is concerned but is worried about my stress incontinence and the increased risk of osteoporosis as my last bone density test showed slightly below average for my age.

    I am suffering with the same symptoms , I also have been diagnosed with a condition called lichen sclerosis which causes itching and soreness and have been given steroid cream , but as the hydrcortisone should only be used sparingly as it can alter the skin I have to apply estrogen cream as well. My doctor also. Won't put me back on hormone replacement therapy, surely the benefits of h r t patches out weigh the slight risks associated with it . I also had a hysterectomy in my 40s and was on hormone replacement for 15years..I wish there was an answer to this problem as the symptoms are very distressing

    I'm 16 and since I was 13 I've had stretch marks on my belly. It's really lowered my self-esteem, and makes me feel fat is there any way that I could get rid of them or even help them fade? Thank you

    I'm 13 and I have this problem, I get asked to send pics a lot and never once have I because I'm afraid they'll make fun of me. I tried to get the surgery not only for confidence but for pain when peeing and the lady at the hospital was very rude about it, on my way out I heard her laughing at me:(

    i have exactly the same problem,except i am 16,i try and avoid seeing him on a day time unless it turns intimate,so i amke sure i go on the night and that its darka and covers are involved! mine make me feel like such and udiot and havent let him go down there yet ebcause of it :|

    I am a woman of 62 and I am a GP Practice Nurse. I have not felt 100% for about 15-20 years, I always thought that it was HRT that I needed but when I tried several types they did nothing for me. I sincerely believe that it is Testosterone that I need. I am not interested in this hormone for increased libido although that would be nice as I have not had even an inkling of any libido at all for a very long time. My main interest is the way that I feel generally despite addressing any medical problems that I do have. Tired, no energy, depressed, lack of motivation, aches and muscle pain, lack of concentration and just general well being and also, despite herculean efforts both with exercise and healthy eating the weight does not come off. I have to eat 900 calories a day or less to lose weight and I exercise vigorously daily to no avail. It is a miserable existence and no way to live. I have tried to discuss this with my GP but he treats me as though I am slightly stupid because evidently I should expect to feel like this at my age. I have tried to find a specialist to get referred to but I can only find men's specialists. Where can I get some genuine informed expert advice?

    I have the implant and I have had no problems with it, it has incereased my libido, both my fella and me have found this to bethe best contraceptive

    hello, im 14 n I have long hair all over my body, I have for a while, I feel so different to other girls in my year. I have to cover myself so much in p.e, it scares me. Whenever I look at myself I can't help but think "Why me?". None of my friends are like me. It has lowered my confidence for years and I want it to stop. Could it happen if you are more like your dad's side of the family?

    I am exactly the same, except I am 13. I know what you mean and I feel really embarrased about it. I have looked into Laser Hair Removal, but I'm not sure if you have to be a certain age to have it. I won't go swimming, wear bikini's. I understand exactly how you are feeling and I too want to know how to get rid of it.

    Samee! I am 13 and I have hair everywhere - I hate it, it makes me feel horrible, I have asked my mum for facial hair removal cream just for the little whiskers but it still freaks me out - I feel so different from all my friends :S
