My DH and I have been married for 7yrs on the 29th. We have had some issues throughout our marriage but for the most part it is wonderful. We do however have very different sex drives. I want it way more than he does.

LOL, awe, thank you. ;-)
I would say at the least 1 time a day but I would love more than that. To be woke up to it in the am when he leaves for work, when he got and before bed. LOL But that is asking way too much! But hey, I can dream right? LOL

Hi,
Others already told you, that there is nothing wrong with you, which I think is right.
But it still looks like you feel that if your desire would be a little lower, some tension in your relationship would be released.


Maybe I can give you some idea which could help.
I used to take some pills with Valeriana officinalis to calm down my stress response. I had problems with stress ressistance - litle stress had very big affect on me. And as a side effect I noticed lower sexual desire. Icannot claim, that exactly Valeriana officinalis did it, but it was at the same time and went away when I quit Valeriana.

Another idea will maybe be more usefull for your husband and maybe for you too.
Right now I'm reading a book The hormone solution by Thierry Hertoghe. He says in that book that lack of or abundance of sexual desire can be a result of hormonal imballance, which is nothing new. But he also offer some solutions from lifestyle to nutrition and supplements to counter this. He mostly cover lack of hormones and consequences in that book, so it will maybe benefit mor to your husband.


P.S.: I'm not sure if you are aware how lucky you are (despite all problems which came along) to have higher desire.
There are millions of us who would give a year of their
