Expert Q & A Answers About low sex drive causes

I have bipolar disorder and the medication erases my sexual desire. How can I get it back?

I am a 35-year-old woman in a very fulfilling and loving relationship. I have bipolar disorder and take several medications daily. But these drugs have erased any sexual desire, decreased the feeling of sexual stimulation and made achieving an orgasm a task rather than a pleasure. I don’t think decreasing my dosage is a good idea, but how do I get around this lousy side effect? I don’t want a sexless life!

My husband doesn’t turn me on. Am I a lesbian?

I’m not that turned on by my husband of 17 years...but, for as long as I can remember, I’ve had fantasies about women. In my teens, I had a few experiences with girls, but not since then. I feel guilty that I don’t desire my husband and I’m confused. Am I a lesbian? I don’t know what to do.

My boyfriend’s lack of interest in sex is ruining our relationship. What can we do?

My boyfriend and I have been together for two years and generally have a good relationship. But for the last year, he’s not interested in sex. I didn’t know this happened to men and I feel discouraged and annoyed. We’re both in our early twenties. We used to be very sexually active but it seems as though sex is the last thing on his mind these days. I know he’s stressed, but sometimes he won’t even touch me for fear of turning me on. What do you suggest?

I’m a woman and I want to decrease my high libido for the sake of my low libido husband. Any suggestions?
