Our expert says:
William, your wording is rather vague and I will assume that you are referring to having sex with your PARTNER who has given birth three months ago...If you are in fact referring to sex with a baby - then the clear answer is that it is a problem to have sex with anyone under the age of 16 and if this is an issue for you then I recommend that you seek support urgently in order to keep yourself and children around you safe.
If it is as I assumed, that you are referring to your adult partner; then if your partner has recovered and is not experiencing ongoing health difficulties after the delivery, then she may be physiologically CAPABLE of being sexual again. However, if she experienced any physical trauma during the delivery, she may be worried about expeirencing pain with sex - if this is the case she may need some reassurance from her doctor and you may need to go slow. Furthermore, there is more to consider than just her physical health. She may still be adjusting to being a mother and adjusting to this baby - sleep deprivation, anxiety, etc may interfere with her interest in sex...If she is breastfeeding, the hormones in her system may also negatively impact on sexual desire.
In summary, whilst the simplistic answer may be 'no', there are a number of factors that require consideration and understanding before getting frustrated that you are not having sex.
