Low Sex Drive in Teen Girls?

At 19 I would think my sex drive would be flying through the roof, but it''s not! I lost my virginity when I was 16, and was always extremely sexually driven and excited, even if I was just around a guy I liked. My boyfriend and I have been dating for a year and a half, and for about 8 months it just doesn''t really appeal to me. I still mentally want to have sex all the time, but the rest just isn''t there. Is this normal? Or should I be concerned?

The “danger” in engaging in sexual activities very early is that you might get board with it earlier as what it would have been the case when you started later in life. Your hormonal levels should at this age not be a concern but it is always good to check it out. It could however also have a strong “emotional” or “psychological” factor – it might be that your boyfriend is just not doing it for you. It might be worth exploring how you could spice up your relationship on all levels. Furthermore it might be worth considering the professional help of a professional psychologist dealing with sexual problems to help you explore all possible avenues

Contraire Stone sinciere appologies but I have two degrees to my name. Can you say the same?

It is very ignorant to accept sexually active teenagers as ok.

At 16 and 19 children (BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE) should be concentrating on their education and their future, not about whether their sex drive is normal.

No wonder we have the social problems we do and the world is such a messed up place, because our priorities are out of whack, and everybody thinks it is normal and OK. Well it isnt.
