Unhappy with high libido
Recently I saw a question in this forum that I could relate to. A woman wrote and said she was disatisfied with her extremely high libido, and your answer seemed to suggest that it was not really a problem and that mismatched libidos in the relationship were the concern. I disagree, because I also feel a constant sense of frustration sexually. Masturbation doesn't help, and I can have several orgasms and feel little more satisfied than when I started. When I want sex my partner is happy to oblige most of the time, but my problem is that I don't like feeling constantly aroused! To me it's like being constantly hungry, and seldom satisfied no matter how much is eaten.
Like the woman who posed a similar question, I too have wondered about taking medications with a side effect of libido reduction. I've even tried taking antidepressants that would do this, and the contraceptive pill, but I couldn't tolerate the side effects. If it is a hormonal imbalance what would the treatment for this be?
I am so constantly aroused that I often have very vivid sexual dreams that leave me frustrated, with a compulsion to have to masturbate to relieve this frustration. My life is busy, and I quite simply do not want to feel this constant 'horniness'! I envy women with low libidos, and I feel like a freak for complaining about mine being too high, as it doesn't seem to be an 'acceptable' or legitimate problem for women to have! We're all *supposed* to be seeking increased libidos!
Do you have any advice for reducing libido? The only time I recall my libido/level of arousal being low was after major surgery. For about five days after I was not aroused or frustrated! I do think there are other women out there like me, who similarly feel that it's not an acceptable problem to be voicing despite their unhappiness about it. I would be grateful for any help on this!
