for myself it's like relearning how to well........get horny and have fun in bed without being high. i seem a little reluctant to get "in the sack" but once i'm there i am fine. honestly i am feeling more than i was during sex since i'm no longer numb. when i was using i had to be high to want to have sex, or to do anything else for that matter. i hope your problem resolves itself in time. i have been keeping a suboxone diary, listing daily the effects it has on me with the hope that i can better help others with decision to sub or not to sub b/c it is a big decision. good luck. sway
yea defenatly dont want to do anything anymore not being high. I never did like to not know what was going on or nod out or any of that when i took pills is was to talk to people have interesting conversations make food, sex, new places all seem better now i dont have that. I belive thats probably my problem that since im not high i dont want or like anything including sex. How did you best coupe with this sway
My boyfriend has the same problem. We are both Sub users, but i take a much smaller dosage than he does. My drive used to be out of control, almost sky-high, but it has lowered since I started Subs, almost to a now "normal" point (wanting it once a week usually, or twice a week at the very most). I'm not happy it has lowered though, I kind of liked the way I used to be. My boyfriend is a whole other story... his drive just Does Not Exist anymore. Its like he's forgotten sex even exists. This is not what I am used to, this is not how he once was. I have to remind him about sex every time I want it and I'm getting frustrated. I feel needy and I feel like I have to coerce him into it each time. Once he is engaged into it, he's usually fine, and enjoys it a lot... but there is a noticeable lack of passion, and drive, and creativity now that Subs have entered our lives. There's also no spontaneity. I know how he feels a little bit, but I can't really understand fully. Maybe you can shed some light on the situation, maybe we can all find a way out of this somehow... He's never been too good at explaining how he feels when it comes to this whole situation, I know he doesn't quite understand it either... I need to learn how to have more patience with him, but I need to understand things first. How can you just not want sex at all? Its just never happened to me to the extent it has with him.
I'm currently in a similar situation!! For the last 6 months I thought it was me! He didn't find me attractive anymore or he's cheating on me, but every other aspect of our relationship is perfect no other changes! So I got to digging around and have just recently found out that subs lower- or extinguish sex drives. I don't know what to do - He doesn't like talking about anything that has to do with his sex drive that's for sure - I guess he's in denial. My sex drive has always been through the roof, and now I'm lucky if I get it once a week...I've heard that if you taper your sex drive with come back bit by bit - he tried cutting his dosage in half and felt horrible for 4 days and went back to his original dosage...Im don't know what else to do
