I felt the same and my littlest is 10 months. I am just now starting to actually want sex again. Now if I could just find the energy.

You might just need a little more time to adjust to having the new baby! Life is crazy with a new LO and you have other kids as well. I say just give your self some time.



MY SO hates having sex with me. it makes me sad but you are not in the same situation as me... Just I saw your topic and thought you might have the same issue... now I am rambling.

He has some mental health issues and we work on it and have gone to all types of therapy but I am getting so sad and tired of all the work and all the loneliness and no sex. Its been years of trying to make my SO want to have sex with me and it is starting to wear on me and my self image. I am so sad now and we have a baby and I don't know how I could ever leave because he takes care of us.



I don't know if I can tell him I want to leave because of his mental health issues that could make him worse so I usually just keep it to my self when I feel like this and in a few weeks I will be back to just living with no sex or intimacy or hugs or anything like that
