Our expert says:
Firstly it is important to establish whether this is a difficulty with arousal alone (in other words, you feel sexual desire, but your body won't repond) or desire problem leading to difficulties with responding. There are so many possibilities for this, especially as it can vary according to where the problem started... it could be a physical problem, the side effect of medication, the result of difficulties in the relationship, or individual difficulties (e.g. depression, guilt, fear, etc). So the best way to begin to break this down would be to either repost with more detail - how the problem began, whether there were other problems (on your husbands part, in the relationship, or for you - physical problems or psychological), and whether you are on any medication. Alternatively, you could consult with your doctor, gynae or someone specialising in sexual health in your area.
