HUGE PROBLEM
Hi..

It’s really hard for me to have to write about this but I find that at the moment I have A HUGE PROBLEM!... I'm in my second trimester of pregnancy and I have lost the urge for sex completely! I feel that if I never do it again it will be to soon.... I feel terrible as my husband is a very sexually active guy and I used to be the same but at the moment I try and make an excuse why we shouldn't make love and I am afraid that it might cause some problems in our marriage.

Is this normal? What can I do to change the way I feel?

Thanks.

It is quite normal to lose your libido during pregnancy. Explain this to your husband and ask him to be supportive.
