My husband is wonderful and I love him deeply but our sex life needs a boost

DEAR DEIDRE: MY husband is wonderful but our sex life needs a boost.

I am 46, my husband is 50. We’ve been married 20 years and have a daughter who is 14.

We love each other deeply but we only have sex once a month or so.

He just says he has a low sex drive.

He has suffered from depression in the past.

He also has erection problems. I want to help him but we do not want to use Viagra as he has high blood pressure.


DEIDRE SAYS: There are some medications for blood pressure that can affect erections so your husband should check with his GP in case a change would help.

A health check would help to rule out any other health problem which could be undermining his libido.

My e-leaflet on Reviving A Man’s Sex Drive explains self-help sex therapy but you can warm up the atmosphere by giving him lots of hugs and kisses without pressuring him for sex.
