People with depression problems, do you find that sometimes during really bad periods you completely lose your sex drive? Even while I wasn’t taking medication (I just started back up on it yesterday, I was off of medication for about six months or so) I just have absolutely no sex drive anymore, when I used to have a really high sex drive. I absolutely adore my partner and am very attracted to her so I know it’s not that, and it’s started to affect our relationship.

      Oh, love. I know that on both sides too well. I'm sorry you are struggling. I don't have any advice on how to fix it, but I can tell you that you are not alone. I suppose one thing I'd recommend, since I've been on the other side of that more than I've been on the low sex drive side, is to communicate, communicate, communicate. The most painful thing for me when my boyfriend pretty much completely lost all interest in sex for weeks to months at a time was that I felt so painfully unwanted and unappreciated. He never told me what was going on in his head so all I felt was rejection everytime I'd try to initiate anything. It would have made a world of difference if he would just have explained to me what was happening and how he felt instead of flat out avoiding me and sharply rejecting anything I did. Tell her you love her, that she's beautiful and attractive and everything you love about her. Remind her that you're with her for more than her body, but that her body IS incredible, even if you aren't interested in sex right at this particular moment in time. Just try to make her feel appreciated. People don't give good communication enough credit. That shit builds and maintains relationships like nobody's business. I'm sorry again that you're in this situation. Feel free to dm if you want to hear more about my situation or things that we've tried when this issue has come up ❤️
