Dear Worried
Is your husband on medication? Many of the medicines used for bipolar causes impotence or premature ejaculation or a total loss of libido. If this is a concern for both of you you may need to discuss this with his psychiatrist as there are some medications ( like Wellbutrin) that does not have these side effects and they may need to review his current medication.
