Resolved Question:

I have had problems since I was a teenager with my libido. I am now 25 years old patientold and never feel like having sex. I try but when I force myself I don't enjoy it. I was not abused as a child or anything like that and am confused why I am not getting horny etc. My husband is quite accepting but I want to give him the love he deserves. What can I do to help?

Thanks for posting your query at

I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
The problem that you are facing is called a sexual desire disorder. You would feel good to know that its not very uncommon. The most commonest cause for this disorder is an improper or inadequate love in the relationship with the partner. In such a case improving the quality of relationship will help in improving the sexual rationship. If that is not the case then some medicines like pramipexole or sildenafil may help in certain cases. I personally use pramipexole in the dose of 0. 125 mg every day and gradually increase it and it has shown good effects in my patients of sexual desire disorder. I would suggest you to have a psychiatry consultation and discuss with your psychiatrist about this drug.
Hope this helps. If you have any further query, do let me know.

Kind regards
Dr. Srikanth Reddy MD

Thanks for you answer. I don't really understand what you mean by improving the quality of the relationship?

Thanks for the follow up question. A succesful sexual act depends on a proper genital function and the state of mind. One of the most important concern of the state of mind is a good relationship with husband. If there is any subconscious conflict between your husband and you can manifest as a sexual desire disorder. It is advisable to spend quality time with your husband. May be an outing with husband or engaging in some creative activity together like cooking or some adventure activity may also help. I have seen simple acts like going on a post dinner stroll with proper communication has also helped some of my clients.
Hope this helps,
