This must be hard for both of you. There are many reasons for a loss of libido (e.g. depression, side effect of medication/drugs, illness, relationship problems, physical health issue) and so the reason for this needs to be established in order to decide how to treat it. I would recommend that you seek professional help. There may be medical factors affecting your libido, and lifestyle changes may be advised. Otherwise counselling may help to enhance emotional intimacy, communication, and mutual guiding to promote more varied, prolonged and effective sexual stimulation, and perhaps to encourage the use of fantasy to avoid distractions, improve self worth and body image if necessary.
