Brief Answer:
Some thoughts on this situation:

Detailed Answer:
By non-existent sex drive, I am assuming that you have no interest in sex under any situation, including no interest in masturbation?

If you still have interest but are unable to maintain an erection, then prescription meds for erectile dysfunction, such as Viagra, can help.

If you once had a normal sex drive but it has decreased abruptly recently, sometimes prescription medications can be at fault.

If interest in sex has decreased gradually, and includes no interest in masturbation, there may be a hormonal or other health problem going on, such as decreased testosterone levels. For this I would suggest seeing your doctor for a general exam and assessment of various hormonal levels (via blood tests). Low testosterone can be treated with hormone replacement.

If you never had much of a sex drive, the problem may be more psychological, such as a dislike of intimacy, or performance anxiety.

So there can be various causes (and solutions depending on the cause). I would suggest starting with going in to see your doctor for exam and hormone level check.

I hope this information has helped. Please let me know if I can provide further information or clarification.

i was diagnosised with thyroiditis 3 years ago. I have been on synthroid for almost 3 years. But before that, I had an infection and was placed on oral doxycycline. we have a pool and i was out in the pool all weekend with sunscreen on. Then my daughter and i went to the beach, stayed about 2 hours, walking around and sitting on the beach. no problems. then on our way home, i started to get sick, nausa and diarrhea. by the end of the night, i was having chills and teeth chattering. thought it was from dehydration, but i was hydrated through out the day. ever since then, every time i am in the sun and get a slight redness, i go through the same thing again. it has been going on for 3 1/2 years. no one seems to know what is the problem. i have been tested for lupus, and so far it has come back negagtive. I also had a ct scan to rule out carsonoid syndrom. That was negative also. I am going to be tested again in december for lupus. not sure if anyone else has anything similar to this. my doctor doesn t know where to go from here, but she keeps trying to find something by reading.... so for now, i mainly hibernate in the house on hot days. boo boo, cuz i like the sun! also something i forgot, I am on hormone replacement and it has helped with alot of the red face with being in the heat. so who knows what is the problem... any suggestions?
