Angry Why can't I get wet anymore?

I'm 19 and in a committed relationship but for the past three month I've had trouble getting wet when aroused and for the past month and a half I haven't wanted sex at all. I'm always tired and even when I do feel the urge to have sex, I can't get wet.

I used to want sex all the time, masturbate at least three times a week, and get extremely wet just at the mention of something naughty.

I do have PCOS which bassically means I've got incredibly high testosterone levels and I've been on birth control (orthotri cyclen) as well as spirnolactin for over a year now.

I've recently enlisted in the Israeli Defense Forces (which is why I'm always tired) but I still don't feel like my life is stressful. My eating habits haven't changed too much, don't drink or smoke, and am in good shape.

I can understand fatigue being cause for lowered sex drive but why am I having so much trouble getting wet? I think the two problems are related and I'm trying to figure out why. It's taking a toll on my relationship because he thinks I'm not attracted to him anymore.

Re: Why can't I get wet anymore?


Actually I doubt your workload has anything to do with it. Women can work and have a sex life just like men. With your hormonal issues, vaginal dryness is not uncommon. There are ways to treat this though, you can use an over the counter lube like Astroglide or ask your Dr. for Estrogen Suppositories.

As for your work and being tired, as you get used to your routine, you'll have more energy.

Other than OTC lubes there are also great OTC products called arousal gels that might help you making your own lube again. I found one called Galaxis that does the trick for me. Good luck!
