“I'm a 41-year-old woman who married the love of her life seven years ago. We're blessed with a beautiful little girl, and my love for my husband knows no bounds. I would move mountains to make him happy.
"But lately, something's changed. My sex drive is now practically non-existent. My husband is so patient, and he still makes me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world. I am doing everything I can, but it just looks awkward, and I fear that his patience will wear thin soon.

Sex educator's 5 tips for restoring a broken libido

1. Do introspect

Finding the root of the cause is, more often than not, the key to success. Nele suggests doing some introspection to see where things changed:

"When did the change in your libido occur and what was happening at the time? Several things can affect our libido, from grief to childbirth, to our mental or physical health, to work stress. Reflecting on this question can give you insight into what changed and how you can go about resolving the issue."

2. Learn about responsive desire

Nele says everyone has access to spontaneous desire, but women are more responsive.

She told Briefly News:

"Responsive desire means that you need to give your body sufficient time to respond to sexual stimuli. Think of it like a fire that needs to be stoked before it burns. What do you need to get stoked? Is it a clean space? Is it a shower? Is it hard to be in the moment with a child around? Do you require emotional intimacy as a form of foreplay? Figure out what you need and pass the information on to your hubby."

3. Take care of yourself and your health

Living a healthy lifestyle is not just not just about getting the doctor off your back or an acceptable number on the scale. Having a healthy diet and getting enough exercise and sleep is crucial for maintaining a healthy sex life as well. Nele explains:

"Our hormones are significantly affected by these factors. Try to prioritise sleep, eating right and moving your body."

Basically, when your hormones are out of whack, so is your libido.

4. Explore your own body

Who would have thought that an effective way to reignite the fire in the bedroom with your partner is to find out on your own terms what gets you going?

Nele explains that, ahem, 'helping yourself' is the simplest way to (re)discover what forms of touch do it for you.

"Once you’ve done this successfully, you can share this information with your hubby," she added.

5. See a doctor

When all else fails, seek medical advice. Sometimes the problem is physiological and needs a healthcare professional to get sorted out.

Nele listed depression, chronic illness, age, hormone levels and medications among many factors that could affect your libido. She concluded:

"Speaking to a doctor can help you get to the root of the issue and resolve the matter appropriately."
