I am considering a sex therapist for my sexual dysfunction of feeling dead from the neck down as in feeling absolutely no pleasurable sensations below the neck. I excercise, eat healthy, soak up the sunlight and go out every Saturday to enjoy myself. When my daughter was born it took 12 months to get back to normal sex meaning virtually pain free. I took vaginal estrogen for about a month and it helped,b but I wasn't completely normal for a year. Now after having my son same thing only the estrogen did NOTHING other than leave a hole in our wallets. I can't keep forcing myself to have painful, or otherwise painful sex. I'm only 24 so I'm wondering what personal experiences have been with sex therapists. Thanks in advance.

I've been talking to the obgyn and his nurse which both say a plethora of stupid things to me. Who else could I talk to?

You are corrwct. I have had a shit year, but anti depressants actually make it worse. I've been on Zoloft and Paxil. Which my body violently rejects. Insomnia, hallucinations, a petite loss.. it seems to be a long hall of jacked up dead ends. Like I think my birth control could be killing my libido but I can't stop taking it we are poor and the last SEVERAL times we tried condoms it was so dull we fell asleep! I'm getting kinda desperate here..

Keeps saying dumb shit like give it time and try to relax it's all in your head. Like wtf?!?! I want to hate sex and feel nothing, of course.

I have tried porn, erotica and I get aroused, but then nothing. It's like my junk won't wake the hell up.

Sorry, I have never had experience with sex therapists, but have you tried anything as simple as reading arousing novels? Erotica can be quite entertaining. Taking the time to just sit and fantasize will also do wonders for the sex drive.
