RE: [IPk] hELP

Hi Julie

Like Diane says, you need to speak to your GP.

I dont think that this is an uncommon problem.  Some sorts of medication like
anti depressants and blood pressure tablets can also have an effect on the
 libido. There has also been a recent article or letter in the DUK mag about the
effect of long term diabetes on women sexual drive.  Even if it is an "age
thing" there is probably treatment to consider or someone who you could talk to
about the problem.
