No sex drive.
I know it's odd, but I really need advice on how to get my sex drive back. I'm NEVER in the mood to do anything anymore. I feel bad because me and my fiance haven't done anything in 3 months. The first 2 months was because of my depo shot. It caused me to have a period the whole time. But since I have been off I haven't been "in the mood". I don't know what to do. Every time he wants to do anything I feel like crap because I really don't. And it's not because I'm not attracted to him anymore which is something he always jokes about. Which makes me feel even worse. I'm only 21 years old, I didn't think I would have these problems yet. Would it be possible that it is a side effect from the birth control? :(
I want you to think about this, but you don't need to answer me. Just think about your answers. Are you happy? Do you feel sexy? Is something causing you anxiety? Has sex been not as fun?
Try to figure out where it is stemming from. Any of those areas I mentioned can cause issues int his department.
Good luck, we are all here for you
lol it's silly now when I say it. There's a different feel of sexy when we become mothers. It's no more or less than it was, it's just different. Little by little we learn to embrace that and we all do it in a different way and in our own time.
This is what I do when I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed and stressed.
Make a list of everything on my mind. Even the little petty stuff like ugh the toilet paper roll is EMPTY! GAHHH!
Next, fix the ones you can. Put that roll of toilet paper on.
Next, cross out the ones you can do nothing about. Hormones can reek havoc. Give the depo shot time to do it's thing and keep communication up with your doctor so he or she knows what symptoms and/or side effects your experiencing.
Before you know it, that super long list that was stressing you out is whittled down to a few things, then make a plan and tackle them :)
