How do I get my libido back?

From antidepressants, to trying to conceive and having kids, Sara invites clinical psychologist and sex therapist Dr. Kristin Zeising ( on this Sex FAQs episode to tackle the different real-life situations that could cause one’s libido to do a disappearing act.

We answer the following questions:

  • “Sex is often over in seconds with my husband. But we ignored these issues because we were great friends. Now I just feel nothing towards him sexually. What should I do?”


  • “I enjoy masturbating regularly using porn. But when I masturbate too often, it makes me feel less sexually interested in my partner. Does masturbation help or hinder my sexual desire?”


  • “My girlfriend is on antidepressants and rarely in the mood for sex. It’s beginning to take a toll on my confidence and libido. What can I do?”


  • “I had a baby 5 years ago, and had post-natal depression. Since then, my libido has never returned. I want to have more desire, but when it comes time for sex, I’ll make any excuse to get out of it. Please help.”


  • “My wife and I have been trying unsuccessfully to conceive for over 2 years. Over time, my interest in sex has declined and now occasionally, I struggle to perform. What can we do?”


Kristin and Sara provide practical tips around how to prioritise pleasure and eliminate the pressure around sex, in order to revive the libido. We also give people ideas around opening this difficult conversation with a partner in a compassionate, non-judgemental way.
