  • I have the same problem. I too am a SAHM and the last thing I want is to have sex. I think after being at home all day the last thing I want is for someone else to be wanting my attention. But I have heard that you have to jump start your sex drive by just doing it even if you are not in the mood and your body will crave it the more you have it.

  • There are many things that can contribute to this. For me a HUGE sex drive killer is birth control. Right behind that is sleep deprivation. Also I get really tired of being touched after a full day with my son. Try to get a sitter and have some alone time. I personally felt very uncomfortable in my body after pregnancy took its toll. I can't say that I am over it. But I am starting to realize that I wouldn't trade my son for a perfect body. Also make sure that when you do have sex, you take time and make sure it is enjoyable for you.

  • That was weird, it cut me off. I find that a run of bad sex does more to kill my sex drive then anything.

  • You could have a hormonal imbalance. You should consult your ob/gyn for blood test that could signal a condition called poly cystic ovary syndrome.
    Do you: Have irregular periods? Have weird hairgrowth? Have a dry vaginal area?
    Some things to try are: Refresh, it is in the lubricate area in the store and it restores the natural balance of your vaginal area. Also can try this online store for a cream called viva cream:
    This stuff is a LIFE and SEX saver!!!! You rub it on your clit area and then WoW~ you have a nice sensation in your area that makes you have a BIG desire for your husband to love you. That along with the Refresh has been a true life saver for me and my hubby of 13 years, we are so happy we found this stuff!
    Good Luck!

  • Even if you are comfy with your body...try getting some exercise. It will stimulate you. Try to find someone to swap babysitting chores so both of you can have some alone time...whether to workout, read, clean (yick) or whatever. I have had to utilize KY on occasion, and it is amazing. Probably any product of that nature as stated above. Hire a sitter and get a couples's fun! Solicite family, church memebers...anyone to give you a hand!!! There is no shame in asking for help! Good luck.

  • I have a new baby(6 weeks) and my sex drive went down the toilet for a while. He is now wanting sex all the time and I just don't feel it. For me its because of the stress of getting up in the night to feed him and I'm horribly tired b.c of it. He's VERY colicky and I spend 9 hours a day trying to calm a fussy baby. There's nothing wrong with you. Its normal. Try to find someone who can watch your children so you and your husband can find time together alone. Maybe it will help start things up. Its hard to feel sexual in a house full of children.
