For most of my life, i've had little to no sex drive.  it heightens around my period, and i'm not on any medication. Why might this be?

In brief: Hormonal Imbalance?

You should visit with your physician and ask him for a "hormonal" work-up; or discuss this with your gyn.

In brief: So many things!

Sex drive in women is actually really, really complicated.
And most likely it isn't "all in your head." trauma, stress, emotions, hormones, physical health all play a part. I agree you should see a gyn who sees patients for low sex drive. Not every gyn sees a lot of these patients so ask around!
