Hello there,

Thanks for writing in.

First thing to do is find out why isn't she interested in intercourse.
Is it because she is not happy in the house?
Maybe it could be due to the fact that she lives in a joint family?
Maybe the reason could be that she has a very busy life with all the cooking and cleaning and taking care of the house ,people etc.?
Probably she is so very exhausted that she has no interest in anything else.

Main thing to do. Go for a vacation for 3-4 days, just the two of you. Make her happy. No work. Just take a break and enjoy your vacation.

Usually men normally want to get straight to the point. Foreplay is a very important part of sex. The longer the foreplay , the better. You both could try a little amount of red wine(not too much) as an aphrodisiac.

As such, there is no medicine to get her interested in sex. Another thing I would suggest is for both of you to sign up for yoga/relaxation classes.

Exercise is very important as it releases endorphins etc and makes you feel good. Join a gym, both of you, and do regular exercise 30-45 minutes a day for 5 days.

Have light dinners at night. Nobody feels like having sex after a heavy meal.

Show her a lot of love and affection. Show her that you truly care about her, and it is not just about wanting something from her. Help her with the household chores and whatever that she needs help with. When she needs to talk to you,
just listen to her. Probably all she needs is a good listener, to know that you truly care about her.

Hope I have answered your question. In case you have no further queries, kindly accept my answer. Any reviews are welcome.

Regards,
Dr.Divya Kuttikrishnan

Hi there,

Please take your wife to a gynaecologist to rule out any hormonal imbalances.

Visit an ayurveda doctor and he/she might prescribe some ayurvedic products like ashwagandha etc to increase female libido.

Hope this helps.

Kindly accept my answer if you don't have any more questions.

Regards,
Dr. Divya Kuttikrishnan.
