Our expert says:
decreases sexual desire after pregnancy is not an uncommon phenomenon, however if not dealt with adequately, it can lead to significant distress. pregnancy and labour itself is a very emotional and (hormonal) time for females and often the body needs to readjust before returning to normal. mentally, you may be exhausted from staying up late with the baby, stressed out over the responsibilty of being a mum as well as feeling undesirable due to the normal changes your body undergoes with pregnancy. all of these contribute to your desire/lubrications levels and ability to orgasm. traumatic vaginal delivery will also affect your ablility to enjoy sex. your relationship with your husband during this time is also very important. if you can identify with any of the above, consider speaking to your gynaecologist or a counsellor/psychologist to help you adjust and return to normal sexual desire levels.
