QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I know that this is a little bit off topic but I am in great need of advice.

I have been married for 6 1/2 months. I love my husband very much and I do find him quite attractive. But over these months I have found that my desire for intercourse has dropped off the face of the earth. At first it hurt but I thought that it was just because I was new at it. Yet things did not get better. I can not seem to get turned on for more than five minutes max. I have never had an orgasm.

QUESTION

I'm 12 weeks pregnant and experiencing some complications. I've been put on pelvic rest. How do I get my husband to understand that it means nothing can enter? The rest is till 13-14 weeks so there are another 1 -2 weeks yet.

I don't really have the interest in sex right now either. How can I convey that so he understands?

Thanks,
Becki
