Lack of Sexual Desire
There are a number of reasons your sexual desire can ebb and flow throughout treatment. You might experience pain, fatigue or hormone imbalances that reduce your desire for sex. You may also experience concerns about body image or sexual performance, causing you to not want to be physically close to your partner.
It is important to discuss these feelings with your partner. If you do not feel comfortable having intercourse, the two of you might consider alternatives that can help you remain physically close.
If you and your partner decide you are comfortable not having sex, it is a good idea to discuss this with your clinician to figure out the underlying cause of your lack of desire.
