I seem to get angry and cry more when I have gone more than 4 days without sex. Is this a normal thing? I have recently switched to the generic version of Wellbutrin and finally got my sex drive back. The problem is it seems my libido has gone into overdrive. I would love to have sex everyday, but my husband does not seem to be able to do that. If I go longer than 4 days it seems that I get very angry and cry more. I get upset at the smallest things. If we have sex at least every 4 days this does not occur, but it seems that he cannot go every 4 days. When I bring the subject up he informs me he could have sex other day, but he is too tired or his back hurts or something else. We have been married for 17 years and I feel like maybe this is something that is my fault. Can anyone provide advice or is this a side effect? I do not want to switch to another anti depressent because they seem to dull my libido and make me not care about anything. Please help. Chele P.View Thread
I have only been with my husband because of sexual abuse when I was only 5 that lasted 2 years. He has worked with me through any and all hangups I might have had. I would say that having him & experimenting in different positions & ways has been the greatest influence. I just signed up so I hope to find more ways & get through a current rough patch.

I understand the frustration also. I have thought of sex toys, as masturbation would not work for me, but I do not know how to approach this with my husband. If you are able to approach your boyfriend regarding sex toys, then I would go that route.
I just got my sex drive back when I switched medications & I do not want to lose it. I think it is what it would have been if I did not need the medications so I want to be myself as much as possible.
Good luck with the situation and I hope it works out.View Thread
