Could not wanting to have sex be a medical or just an emotional problem?

I am married for 5 years. I don't like for my husband to touch me anywhere and I wouldn't even have an affair because I don't care to have sex with anyone. I am on pain medication and anti depressants for fibromyalgia. Any help with be much appreciated. Thank you.
I have had a hysterectomy just recently but the problems were there before that also.

    I have had Fibro for 20 years and have to wonder if the antidepressant you are taking is lowering your libido. That is a common complaint and side effect of most antidepressants except Wellbutrin. The pain meds are probably desensitizing your responses also.

    Another theory I have is that Fibro kicks your body into the "fight or flight" response. This will override your other feelings and responses because it is an emergency state. Your body thinks (from the chronic pain transmittals) that you are in danger and those feelings outrule lesser input. I hope this helps and makes sense!
    Good luck!
