Your self image improves. ...Read more

Is low sex drive normal during pregnancy? This is severely hurting my relationship for him and me. Very stressful

Lots of changes: Hormones fluctuate widely during pregnancy. Some women find their libido has greatly increased, where others it greatly decreases. This can also happen if you have severe "morning sickness" - it's kind of hard to be in the mood if you're feeling nauseated and throwing up all the time. Long and the short, it takes an adjustment. Take more time with each other, more romance. Good luck! ...Read more

I have a strong sex drive and my bf is a lot older than me and busy all the time..So I ended up feeling not good whenever I like having sex and not really getting it coz my bf is busy..Wat can I do to lessen my sex drive?

Honest discussion: Trying to stifle your own libido may not be the healthiest answer here.

It sounds like this may not be happening, and you say you're not feeling good. When one partner feels neglected, it isn't good overall. There are good couples therapists, if you want help. Good luck. ...Read more
