I am a 29 year old mom of 2. I had a hysterectomy in 08. I am not on any meds. i crave sex all day every day. I masturbate on average 3 times a day and that still doesn't work. I stay busy being a full time student, employee, and mom. I was never really into sex, not even with my ex-husband. I have been in a relationship for almost 8 months now. I constantly ask my bf if we can have sex and he says no. He has been with over 100 chicks when he was in the army plus the meds he is on is preventing him from having a SD. We have sex about 1 time every 3 weeks. He said he has already gone through his sex craving stage and that's why he doesn't want it that much now. He tells me to use my vibrator. I do and I stilll want it. Actually it upsets me really bad when i have to use my toy. I get to the point that i am hurting physically cause of the pain of wanting sex. I want to cry because i crave it so much. When my bf tells me no i feel like pure crap cause i already feel pathetic from craving sex and feeling like i am having to beg for it on top of feeling rejected. I don't know how to stop this. I want to be normal again. How do I stop craving sex and stop thinking about it non stop. When I am taking a test at school i think about sex, when i am working I think about it. Its really not healthy to be wanting it this bad. I didn't start wanting sex like this till about a year ago. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? Please if anyone knows how to stop this or how to atleast slow it down please help! I hate feeling like this. I hate being rejected and feeling like i'm having to beg for sex.

You need to speak to your doctor. The condition is called hyperexuality. They can test your hormone levels, look at your medicines and see what changes could possibly have caused this change. It can also be a sign of other conditions developing, so it is important that you speak to your doctor. It is often treated off label with medicines known to affect sex drive and hormone levels, like anti-depressants or even birth control pills.

You have no reason to feel guilty or disappointed for masturbating. It is the way to deal with your sexual desires in a safe way, and with a person you really like - yourself. Having to masturbate does not mean you are a failure at anything. It means you are a responsible adult, taking care of yourself and your needs.

Best of luck, and really make a plan to see your doctor.
