I can't show my affection

For several years, I have had no real interest in sex and I have never experienced an orgasm. I am married and love my husband; we have been together for 10 years in total.

Initially we made love often and although I did not reach orgasm, I enjoyed the closeness. I would like to feel that way again.

In the first few months of our relationship, I became pregnant and had an abortion. I felt extremely guilty and sad; however, it was the right decision. I often wonder if this has affected me more than I realised.

I also come from a family that is not demonstrative in our affections. I know my parents love me, but I did watch my mother reject my father's affections and find myself doing the same thing with my husband. I would really like things to change. Can you help?
