Hi there mommies
just a question since i had my son who is now 2 i have not been interested in sex really .
Honestly i could actually go without it and be fine
like me and SO havnt done it in two weeks now as i was in a car accident
But for i didnt have any problem not doing it
I know that he doesnt understand it because before the the pregnancy and even during the pregnancy i have always been very sexually active with him ... loved foreplay etc

anyone else feel like this and if so what did you do to make it better

also ive heard some people say it might be the BC pill im on taking away my sex drive. Just wanted to get some opinions ???

It could very well be your Birth Control, if it's a hormonal one.

It could be your bc. Do you exercise? Have you lost any of the weight? How are you doing physically? After I had my son I wasn't really interested in sex. I did it for my ex husband. After my daughter was born I started exercising and got some of my libido back. You may need to stay some physical activity to help you get back on track.

Could be the BC. I had my daughter 4 years ago and have lost my sex drive after I had her. I was only on BC half that time and still no sex drive

I felt the same but realised that it was because I was unhappy with my body post-baby. I started changing it, got my mojo back and fell pregnant again....... Now I don't want the sex. ARGH! Having sex dreams like MAD but he just annoys me (got that pregnancy hate back lol).

Exercise creates endorphines and really does help you. I think you should work out.
