Low Libido

My husband is 25 years old an has absolutely no sex drive. We've been married six months, and this is becoming a big problem, especially since we want to have children. I've tried as hard as I can to be sensitive to his needs, talking with him very gently. He doesn't know what's going on, and this is starting to affect our relationship, at least on my end. Any ideas about what's going on?

This could be a hormonal issue.  Ask him if he would be willing to get his hormones checked.  There are urologists that specialize in male sexual issues.

I think that may be connected to low testosterone levels.  Like SDScientist said, he should have his hormones checked.  A simple supplement may solve the problem.

I know how you feel! I just got married in June and my husband is the same way. We just had a semen alalysis done and we found out that he has a low sperm count, shape and # of good sperm. Like the others said the Dr advised us to go  see a Urologist. Were going to wait till the new year. I really think my husband may have a hormonal problem and that could be why he has no sex drive too. I wish you luck and I know how you feel! I would definatly get it checked out.

hi there:

like the other posters said above, it's likely a hormone issue.  If I were you, I'd make an appointment to see a doctor and have your hormones checked.  If you don't have a doctor, it's pretty easy to get one.  Do you have insurance?  If so, you can just select one that they recommend.  

The smoking may have an effect on libido but probably not to a significant extent.  Are you taking any medications?  Anti-depressants or anything like that?
