I feel bad about myself.

Since I've had my son, wierd things have been happening. I know pregnancy makes your boobs sag so theres no shock but lately I've had no period, dryness down there, and no sex drive. I think there's something wrong with me. My son is 8 months old by the way and I haven't nursed in a while. Is this normal? I'm only 22 and feel like 50 physically. Please talk to me.:-(

  • I am 21 with 2 babies and sometimes you have down days.
    My stomache looks like brains/hamburger helper/ground beef,
    if that makes you feel any better.
    I didn't have much of a sex drive after the babies either,
    I noticed that changing your sex partner helps.
    I wasn't really that into my s/o,
    so he broke up with me.
    beingwith someone new boosted
    my confidence that other people would be
    attracted to me.

  • It could be a hormone thing. I would ask your doctor.

  • EVERYONE goes through this after childbirth and there is no cap on it. There will be some days when you just feel in the dumps. Talk with your husband and let him know how you are feeling. I would try to get a little pamper yourself time as well.
    Hugs It will get better.

  • I agree that this is not abnormal after having a baby...even 8 months. You will have your days, ups and downs. I also agree that it's a good idea to get some time to yourself. And if you really feel like you're depressed, please see your doctor.
