medication to tone down libido

Im a 38 yo. divorcee with an abnormally high sex drive. My ex couldn' t satify me or keep up with me. I' ve got a really great bf &  love him 2 bits been involved 2 yrs now. He' s 100 times better than my ex in bed but my sex drive is even 2 much 4 him 2 handle. He is 36 &  as virile as can be but I still just cant get enough. We r madly in love &  plan 2 marry in Dec. I feel a bit self concious about my abnormal sex drive &  am concerned that it might spoil a wonderful relationship. Sometimes I feel mas if I' m 2 demanding 4 sex. Is there any medication 2 tone down my lust so that we can at least b more evenly matched? I really love him 2 bits 7 woul really like 2 b a bit more normal.

It is great that you have a healthy desire for sex and I strongly advise against medication. What is “normal” varies greatly for every single person. It may be helpful to know that a common side effect of some contraceptive pills is lower libido. I think a longer term solution would be talk realistically about both your needs. Use personal masturbation in-between to lessen stress on the sexual part of your relationship. Also grow other aspects of your relationship, like doing fun or creative things together.

Sounds like U might have a hormone imbalance. Usually this works the other way round i.e. low libido. While it is nice 4 a man to have a highly sexed woman, it' s not always so easy 2 satify her  especially if U take into account the stress + responsibilties of life. It is better when the couple r more evenly matched as an abnormally high libido by either partner can put strain on the relationship. I' m sure the doc. can prescribe something. Good luck.
