Re: when im having sex i can't feel anything

Yes, being sexually abused as a child can absolutely be a factor. When children are abused in this way, they often times will 'protect' themselves by making themselves numb. I was sexually abused as a child and have numbed myself at times during sex with my husband. Just because we're grown up, doesn't mean the abuse stops affecting us. Are you in therapy at all? It would probably help you to talk things out with a professional skilled in this area. Just a thought.

As far as fixing the problem, there may not be an immediate fix, especially if the problem is mostly related to your childhood. However, you could try more foreplay (if you haven't already), so when you do go to have sex, you'll likely be more sensitive and therefore should be able to feel more. Many (but not all) women need their 'ovens' preheated for a longer amount of time than men do.
