When you’ve been in a relationship for a while and your partner suddenly loses interest in sex, your natural instinct is to believe that he’s just not into you anymore, or that he’s possibly…you don’t even want to think it yet alone say it…cheating. But if nothing outside of your sex life would indicate that—if your partner is still completely loving and committed, and doesn’t seem like a person guilty of anything—then don’t jump to conclusions. There could be something else at play behind that declining desire to do the deed. A lot of the medications both men and women take are effective because they alter certain chemicals and hormones in our body, but sometimes, they can have an adverse reaction, like killing our sex drive. Before thinking your relationship is falling apart, consider if you or your partner are taking these medications that can kill one’s sex drive.
