Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
It is Prescribed for Contraception, Heavy Menstrual Bleeding, Endometriosis or Postponement of Menstruation.
The exact cause has to be ruled out, Kindly get her examined by a Gynecologist.

Good Luck.

welcome to healthcaremagic
it seems both of you need counselling
discuss among yourselves the problems freely and try to find out ways to improve conjugal life
if no such problem take your wife to physician and get a thorough check up to find out the problem with your wife
it is surely not normal to be in bed for 22hrs for a healthy woman
