Anyone else completely lose their sex drive?

Postby BeingAnAdultSucks » Tue Dec 01, 2015 1:31 pm

We've been through two cycles now, one fresh and one frozen. I'm madly in love with my DH. He's hot, kind, patient and supportive. I want our physical intimacy back, but I have NO desire for sex. None.

Has this happened to anyone else? If so, what did you do about it?

I agree but I think it's because my brain was all about making a baby, which sounds funny right cause we should be doing it more than! Lol I've realized the more in depth we get with being reproductively challenged the less sex we actually have. I think it's been almost 2 months since we've had sex, from the starting of stims in October till even now at 6wks pregnant. I need to make sure baby is growing nice n strong before we get intimate again but that's just me.
