My husband and I want to try for a baby but I have no desire for sex

DEAR DEIDRE: MY husband and I would love to start a family but there’s a big cloud hanging over us – I never have any desire for sex.

I am 28 and he is 29. We have been married for three years and I love him dearly. I never had a high sex drive but lately it’s totally disappeared.

It’s not just the children issue coming between us. My husband thinks it’s a sign I don’t love or want him and this simply isn’t the case. How do I get my sex drive back without forcing myself to have sex I don’t fancy?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’ll send my e-leaflet on Reviving A Woman’s Sex Drive which explains self-help sex therapy, but start by looking at your feelings about becoming a mother.

You say you long to start a family but are there doubts or bad memories you’re trying to ignore? That could be blocking your sexual responses. Counselling could make all the difference. See bacp.co.uk.
