Let's talk about sex!*
I'm just not that into it. For a really long time it was something we HAD to do at just the right time of the month in order to get pregnant. And then it was to be avoided because we were trying to get pregnant (IVF). And then I had that whole fiasco of a pregnancy and was on "pelvic rest" for pretty much all but 3-4 weeks. During that time Brian was too scared to do anything, so we didn't for a VERY long time. And then we had twins, and we were too tired to do the basic things like shower, eat and brush our teeth, let alone have sex. Plus, when you don't shower or brush your teeth who could possibly find you attractive?
The babies turned 6 months old and started sleeping better and Brian wanted sex. I was definitely not ready for it. And I'm such a beeyotch that I didn't even give in to the pity sex. He got close to nothing for a year. That’s in addition to the previous year where he REALLY got nothing. Poor guy!
And then I found a miracle. I talked to Dr. Fabulous, my OBGYN, and she said, "Try testosterone, it works!" I was like, "What? Will I grow a moustache? Will I get facial hair?" No and NO! It is a very low-dose shot, just enough to give your libido a boost. And boy did I need it!
After the first shot I was a new woman. Not only did I initiate sex, but I initiated MORNING sex...and that NEVER happens. I started wanting sex more, we started having sex more and the cycle grew on itself. Having more sex = wanting more sex! And no other side effects to speak of.
Well, I haven't had the shot in a few months and we're back to a couple times a month. Sad, I know.
Ironically, while I was in the middle of writing this post I met up with Dr. Fab and several girlfriends for drinks. We all discussed the “T-Shot,” as we refer to it. I’m going to see her NEXT week for my next shot.
Anybody else out there getting the T-shot?
