Lost interest in sex. Causing lot of stress in relationship. How to regain interest?

Hi, I m 25, my partner is 34. We ve been together for 7 years and he is the only person I ve ever slept with. At the start, we were having sex 3 times a day, but over the years this has trailed off - despite his libido being as high as ever. I m hardly ever in the mood anymore, and sometimes feel a loss of sensation - although my body reacts in the right way I can hardly feel when he is touching me or it gives me no pleasure at all. This doesn t happen everytime we have sex, and I don t understand why it happens, which makes me anxious and either makes the problem worse or puts me off sex entirely. This is causing a lot of stress in my relationship as my boyfriend thinks that I am no longer interested in him or find him attractive. I get upset when I find him watching porn as I know I can no longer satisfy him. Can you offer me any advice?

Hi Rebecca,
Decreased libido in women can occur due to several reasons. Medications, excessive stress, anxiety and some other disorders can contribute to this. The following can help:
a. Exercise for atleast 40-50 minutes daily
b. Use breathing exercises or yoga to reduce the stress levels you have
c. Find ways to communicate so that both of you really connect
d. Make some time for your relationship.
In addition, you can speak with a physician about an estrogen patch. This can help improve your sex drive. Also, talking to a sex therapist can help you sort out your feelings on this
Hope this helps
