    NO, nothing normal at all,,,, I know women in their 60's and older still involved. Because they are older, does not make them dead............ ahhhhhhhhh come on now.... don't you hope you are still active at that age?

    If you've been raped or abused yeah it's normal. I think from what I researched(this is from a 21 year old...laugh all you want =) ) is that women between the ages of 30-40 is where sex get more exciting, they reached their peak and they slowly go down. I'd say you're normal but then again I guess I'm too young to say nay or yea

    I am in that age range and I am not interested in sex as much as I used to be. I had a hysterectomy last year and have just started feeling "normal" again. I am taking antidepressants as well, which is a large factor I'm sure and also carrying those extra pounds doesn't help either. For me, it seems it's the only time my hubby ever wants to spend with me, so now, we hardly spend any time together at all.

    Is it normal you ask? No, I don't think it's normal at all.

    ABSOLUTELY, it's normal.

    Low libido is what happens when you are going thru menopause.

    You have more estrogen in your system than progesterone. You are lacking progesterone - NOT estrogen!

    Try supplementing with a NATURAL progesterone cream.

    your body is changing. if you havent already gone through menopause then you are probably starting to. dont worry your sexual appetite will come back. if it doesnt talk to your doctor. you could also be short on some essential vitamins and mnerals. try a multi vitamin supplement. Make sure you are not avoiding sex due to some emotional problems going on

    Only if they are married. LOL. Honestly the less sex you have the less you want it. Think about it - are other things getting in the way, work stress or relationship problems.
