Our expert says:
Whilst PCOS may be associated with a lowered libido, there are also other causes, and if your PCOS has been treated, then it may be that other important factors play a role. In your instance the main issues I would look to are as follows:
1. The normal/common decline in a woman's libido in a committed relationship longer than 4 years
2. Having an 8 month old baby and the associated tiredness if sleep deprived, stress if you're finding it difficult (most new mothers do), normal/common prioritisation of all energy for the baby, hormones if you're breast feeding, and any other associated psychological changes such as the weight of the responsibility, and for some mothers a feeling that you're the only parent taking this responsibility seriously. All of these can impact on libido whilst you adjust from a couple to a family...
3. The memory of the kiss can leave a mark on one's sense of adequacy/trust which may play itself out sexually
I would recommend that you find some professional help to try to identify what the most likely factors are in your case...try mailing SASHA via our website (www.sexualhealth.co.za) to identify a health professional with a special interest in sexual health local to your area.
