Help! I have an insane and very embarrasing problem... I am pretty sure it's not normal..

I had a baby a month ago. Within the past couple of weeks- I have begun getting "aroused" usually in the early afternoon. It is completely UNPROVOKED. It just happens spontaneously-- a lot!

I do breast feed- but let me make it clear that this - NEVER happens when I am actually feeding my baby or anything like that.

I am not sure why this is happening. I am almost 5 weeks postpartum. My husband and I have not had "relations" since the end of my pregnancy.

Could I have problems with my hormones? I have some night sweats and get hot and cold a lot now. I also have had a problem with migraines w/ aura on and off since I was 3 days postpartum... Please tell me what you think. I am freaked out and concerned that something is really wrong with me.

  • It sounds pretty normal your body is trying to get back to normal, I developed migranes after my 2nd child i dont know why i just did and they have never gone away.

  • I was this way about 3 weeks after having both my kids. It's perfectly normal. If you aren't quite back to where you can have "relations" it'll give you a chance to get creative. Have fun with it.
