User avatar First, he should see a doctor to rule out any physical problems. You didn't mention his age, but diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure, medications for blood pressure and antidepressants can also be a factor. If these do not apply, perhaps he needs a testosterone level done, many middle age men experience a reduction in testosterone levels, reducing their libido. Stress can very well be a factor in desire. It's not uncommon for people in general to be uninterested during the week if they have especially stressful jobs and/or work long hours.

Is it normal on the weekends? Do you have a routine that you follow? If so, changing things can add excitement and increase libido dramatically. Talk to your husband about what he would like, communication is the key.
