I have no nature for my husband
Dear Joan, I HAVE been married for more than 20 years, and in the early years, I was very excited about making love with my husband. I am now almost 50 and I find that in the last two years, making love is like a chore.
It’s not that I love my husband any less – he is still my best friend, and I am very comfortable around him. I enjoy when we cuddle and share small talk, but the minute he shows an interest in things getting intimate, I feel turned off.
The truth is, no matter how I try, I just can’t get myself into feeling anything. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I am thinking about going to the doctor, but I am afraid as I don’t want to hear that something is seriously wrong with me.
Sometimes just to satisfy him, I pretend that I am into it, but it hurts as I am not really moist the way I should be.
Joan, do you think something is wrong with me?
K.M. Dear K.M., I am almost certain you are one of the many women who are now going through menopause. One of its symptoms is low sexual desire.
Even if you are still having your period, it appears to me that premenopausal conditions are now beginning to set in.
Don’t be afraid to have a talk with your doctor; he will explain everything to you.
It would also help if you have a talk with your husband too. Let him know exactly
