Less interest in sex: I see you are 36 years old. You need to figure out if your disinterest in sex is due to physical/medical reasons, emotional reasons, personal choice reasons, etc.

Focus of young: For a number of reasons sexual activity is much higher in young people anyway. For instance, hormone levels tend to stimulate interest. But also young people are surrounded by messages in the media and social media encouraging relationships and sexuality. All of this makes treatment harder, but certainly not possible.

After sex, i immediately lose interest in sex. I'm almost repulsed. I am completely flaccid after ejaculation.

Normal to be flaccid: It is normal to be flaccid after ejaculation, but as long as your loosing interest in sex is related to your penis being flaccid, it is nothing to worry but if it lasts for hours and days than you need to consult your doctor or you may need therapy.

A 19-year-old female asked:

I've slept with 6 guys monogamously & Im excited with foreplay but as soon as we're about to have sex, I lose interest.What's wrong with me? I'm 19 F

Confusing : Sleeping with six guys usually means having sex and hence cannot be monogamous. If you never had sex with any of them, congratulations you are preserving yourself for the lucky guy. Nothing is wrong with you
