I am completely new to this but literally at my wits end and don't know where else I can possibly turn. I have been married for 5 years and always wanted children but have struggled with infertility due to polycystic ovaries. In recent months for no reason I have started ovulating myself naturally and therefore every month there is now I chance I could conceive. My husband's interest in sex has been diminishing for the last year and he admitted the other day that although he really wants a family he literally never has any desire to have sex and he believes he is suffering from depression. I do love him and although our difference sex drives have caused some stress in the marriage this is the first time I really feel like I could leave him. I was 30 in November and my biological clock is ticking and if he can't have sex ever I have no chance of ever having my dream realized. He is going to the doctor next week but he is very messed up and needs counseling which will take time and I don't have time on my side anymore. I really don't know what to do, should I stay and risk never having a family or go and move on with my life and try to meet someone who is prepared to do whatever it takes to have a family like I am. PLEASE HELP I am so desperate.
