Talking to the doctor about sex drive... Watch

    I'm going to the doctor in a few hours to talk about how my sex drive has been pretty much non-existant since i've been taking the pill, and discuss my options because it's starting to get me down.
    I'm extremely shy and I'm so nervous about talking about this! I really know how to word it! Is "sex drive" an acceptable term to use? I don't want to sound too graphic!
    I know she's used to talking about things like this, but I'm just so nervous!

    Yeah you can use sex drive :p:

    It's OK; are you seeing a male or female doctor? If it makes you more comfortable ask to see a female doctor (I think you can also ask to see a younger doctor as well)... obviously that might not be possible today but in future!

    They've spoken about worse

    Yeah, it's a female doctor thank goodness! Though I've seen her before and I seem to remember her being quite stern! I know I'm just worrying about nothing but it's just a strange situation to be in, talking to a stranger about things like this!

    Yeah but you'll hopefully not have to see her again for a long time, and she sees lots of other people

    My doctor is lovely! If I can let her put a coil in, you can talk about your sex drive
