Dear Toni
Desire disorder is the commonest female sexual disorder.From the history you have presented i would worry about a fear of becoming pregnant that could be the reason for not desiring sex as this could lead to pregnancy. A detailed background history of previous abuse ,unplanned pregnancies , termination of pregnacy etc woulsd assist your counsellor /sexologist to help overcome the problem . a few mwdications are used off label to assist with desire disordrs and a few new medications are on the horizon.

Hi. If you think that you were aroused when you were on the pill, then go back on it.
