Dear Dr. Christina: I've lost interest in sex with my husband

"I am a 60-year-old woman and I have lost interest in sex with my husband. In the last five years his actions have resulted in us losing our house. I just can't get past it."

Dear I've lost interest in sex with my husband,

I am so sorry to hear that you have lost your home.  I can only imagine all the feelings of sadness, anger and frustration you must be feeling and it would only be natural for you to feel disconnected from your husband if he is the reason you lost your home. Wanting physical intimacy and feeling sexual desire is a very emotional thing. It would be hard to be vulnerable physically if you feel disconnected emotionally or unsafe in some way. I would encourage you to share with your husband all the feelings you have around his behavior and the loss of your house. You can heal this wound and hopefully find a way to reconnect first emotionally and then maybe physically.

Dr. Christina
