1. Be patient. It took DW and I several months before she was able to have an orgasm. It can take some time to figure things out. One thing y'all can do is just get into bed naked and slowly touch and caress each other without any expectations. Talk, kiss, explore and let your bodies tell you what to do.
2. Your husband needs to change his mindset. I have also tended in the past to emotionally withdraw when I feel like a failure or life isn't living up to my expectations.

Thank you for sharing your experience. I will try some of the other advice first, but will keep the vibrator in mind.
We’ve been having fun with it and enjoying ourselves without any expectations, things are definitely looking up.
We took the love language quiz when we started dating 4 years ago, it definitely couldn’t hurt to take it again. I feel lacking in quality time, but I know he’s doing his best… he has very long work days between starting a new business and keeping current job.
1. That is definitely a good way to relax and connect. It’s particularly helpful when we want that special moment, but are too tired for anything more demanding.
2. We’re both working on that
