Hello all. Not sure where to post this. I'm having sex (lack of desire) problems with my husband. However I am also 32 weeks preggo. In searching for a reason I jump to the most horrible one, poss sexual abuse as a child I don't remember. Now as I've been reading most childhood abuse memories are supressed. How do you know for sure. I have no memories,

Hi jenrvt79,

Thanks for sharing your question on the board. Often times different issues can overlap with different iVillage boards so I can understand how it might be confusing knowing where to post. If you think there might be some past history of sexual abuse that you aren't aware of you can definitely post here and get support while you are sorting things out.

I've never been pregnant myself so I don't really know what is typical regarding sex drive during the third trimester. If you are concerned and it is causing problems between you and your husband it might be worth discussing with your obstetrician.

iVillage does have a message board related to pregnancy so if you want to connect with others who are pregnant and might be experiencing similar sex issues that might be another option.

There's also a mismatched libido board where you could also be able to talk to others experiencing sex issues within relationships.

I wish you the best as you continue on with your pregnancy and as you sort out what might be going on for you.

Take Care
