Hi all , first time writing on here so please be patient with me on replys and stuff!
My partner is currently on the Suboxone program after having a opioid dependency issue (heroin also) and i am so proud of his progress! He is a calm and collective person now and saved a huge amount of time and money.
Though i am proud of him i am concerned with his lack of sex drive. He gets erections but has no sexual intentions what so ever! We use to be very sexual with each other and this is all changed. I understand its not me but its hard for a women to cop this type of rejection over and over again. We have spoken to the pharmacist about it and apparently its within normal on Suboxone. As he has only been on it for 6 months i dont want him to go off of it and relapse and i do think he is better with it but a women needs some sex with her man! I am literally open for suggestions from men and women with similar experiences that have tried something that helped! i have heard viagra and what not but dont want him to force it for me. Has anyone tried anything with a partner who is on Suboxone to release some sexual urges and feelings? PLEASE HELP!
BTW TO CLARRIFY THINGS I AM A LOVING PARTNER FEMALE AND MY PARTNER IS A MALE
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE! :) :)

A lot of us men went through the same thing. The sex drive just kind of up and disappeared. Have him go ask his doctor to do a blood test to check his testosterone levels. Mine were low so my doctor prescribed Androgel. There are many other products out there including a shot he can get. It took roughly two weeks for my sex drive to return. Viagra has nothing to with desire. Trust me, his desire for you will come roaring back.

Congratulations on his recovery. Is he just doing this on his own or did he join some kind of support group to keep the cap on his addict brain? Some do okay on their own but addiction is a tricky little back stabber. If he ever gets off the Suboxone he'll need something to fall back on. Or maybe not. We are all different. See if you can get him to join this forum. This is a recovery forum BTW.

Welcome to the group.

Hi Ali123, Welcome! I am a woman on suboxone and have experienced the same thing. I am older and have just finished menopause so my hormones have been all over the place! My husband had heart surgery and that slowed him down, for a while! I can say, and it does sound cliche, keep the line of communication open. We have found other ways to stay close and that helps. You and your husband will get through this if you talk about it! Good luck!
