Has anyone else had their doctor insinuate that their low sexual desire was because the marriage was in trouble?

    Yes, this was my doctor's first assumption. For me, that really wasn't at all the issue - we were still in our first year of marriage and truthfully, the rest of my relationship felt like a dream. I persisted and then she said that it was probably stress from work. I was deterred - that was two years ago. Since then, my partner has started to really notice the change and it has started to become a point of friction.

    Yup. My doctor said I just didn’t find my husband attractive anymore. It was so untrue, and a complete cop out so they didn’t have to find out what was actually wrong with me.

    Yes... she said it was because I was stressed, not happy in my relationship, not in love with my husband anymore and that I just needed to get over it. She wanted me to go through some therapy that my insurance would not cover that was 90 miles away... but we aren't rich...

    My doctor assumes it's my antidepressant but I've been on them for years and it wasn't that bad until a couple years ago. I've felt too uncomfortable bringing it up again
