Will not help: This is not the best remedy. Some of my patients use antidepressant medications that have the side effect of "delayed ejaculation", which in your case is a positive effect.

Several things: Be open and honest and discuss this with him. Find out his reasons for lack of desire. See if he is willing to discuss this with your obstetrician. Encourage him, but don't turn him off by nagging, demanding or embarrassing him. He may have valid reasons and they may be difficult to undersand.

Safe: Sexual intercourse is not contraindicated during pregnancy, in most cases. Abstinence is generally recommended for patients with an incompetent cervix, placenta previa, and for patients with premature labor. Sexual intercourse during pregnancy may cause some contractions, but will not cause labor. It is associated with an increased incidence of spotting or bleeding during pregnancy.

See a gynecologist: Find the source of the pain. If there is vaginal dryness, for example, from menopause, then topical Estrogens can help, as well as over the counter lubricants. But first, a full pelvic examination is indicated.
