my past is destroying my marraige
Just a bit of background. As a child I was molested (still haven't been able to tell my family member, but I told my husband), and at 15 I was raped by two men, who was caught and sentenced. Anyway, I'm not seeing a shrink, but I think this is the cause for my low libido or sex drive, call it what you may. My husband and I are trying to fall pregnant, but have been unable to because we have so little sex. I bought these pills called libido, it works, but I don't drink it regularly because, the sexual act is what's not very appealing to me. This is it in a nutshell, please help

Hi natti,
The horrid experiences you describe could very understandably reduce one's libido, and cause a degree of unhappiness which can be relieved by good counselling and working through the issues. Do see a counsellor, not merely because you two are anting to conceive a child, but because working through these issues could so greatly enhance the quality and happiness of your life.
