Our expert says:
Depression is a common and nasty illness, which usually respopnds well to the use of antidepressants - but thoughwe vary quite widely in how individually we are affected by the different side-effects, many of us experience a major drop off of libido. And there can be other forms of interference, too, such as lack of lubrication, loss of or reduced orgasm, and so on.
She should discuss this issue with her psychiatrist, to be sure that her depression has been properly diagnosed and the treatment well chosen ( milder forms may respond really well to proper counselling of the CBT format ) ; and, if she requires continuing use of antidepressants ( and you want her depression to be well treated, ad depression itself kills libido and sexual enjoyment, too ). There are some newer antidepressants which don't have this particular side-effect, such as Agomelatine, which might be well worth considering.
