    Hey,

    I don't know what's up with my body at the moment - but I am NEVER in the mood. Sometimes, the thought of having sex with partner of 3 years makes me anxious. We only see each other on a weekly basis and this creates pressure for me to have sex instead of letting it happen naturally. Is this normal? I've also been on the pill for 5 years but am only really having a lack of libido now...

    What's up with me!?

    It could be that the pill has stopped suiting you as much, or it could be down to something else such as stress. If you arent feeling stressed or have nothing else bothering you then go see the doctor.

    It could be as simple as the fact that you're stressed, have you spoken to your boyfriend about feeling stressed?

    Stress, and feeling under pressure to be sexual on demand, are not good for anyone's libido.

    Step one, talk to your partner. As part of that, I'd be getting him to accept that some sorts of sex only happen when you're in the mood.
