Patient : I am 28 and married with 2 young children. I have suffered with depression and anxiety for almost 15 years and have been on and off of many antidepressants. I have never had a huge interest in sex, but over time I am finding that I have almost no sexual urges at all. My husband is great and we are very much in love, but I am constantly turning him down and just don't know how to behave when he wants to have sex. I do not enjoy it at all, no matter what he does right. It is now deeply affecting our relationship and I'm wondering what I can do about this problem and if I'm going to just be told that it has to do with my depression. I feel like this problem is now causing a great deal of my depression in fact. Is there anything I can do about this?
