I have sex with my partner to stop rows but I don't really want to

DEAR DEIDRE: FOR the sake of a quiet life, I have to force myself to be “in the mood” for sex.

My libido is non-existent.

But if I don’t give in to my partner, it causes bad feeling between us.

These days we argue over so much, even the petty, stupid things. We can’t seem to get on at all these days.

I’m a 25-year-old woman and he is 28.

We’ve been together for five years and are parents to a lovely two-year-old daughter we both adore.

I suffer from depression and I know my medication is playing a part in this.

I just want to know how we can be happy again, learn to get on well and be there for one another.

DEIDRE SAYS:  Anti-depressants can knock our sex drive but so can feeling regularly pressured into having sex.

You need to be talking together and work out why these arguments keep happening – another sex-drive dampener.

Nothing will change until you do and your relationship cannot survive like this.

My support packs Relationship MOT and Reviving A Woman’s Sex Drive will help.
