  • well my super low libido isn't due to breast feeding but yes i have that!! my gyno put me on some antidepresants to help...they made me sick. so now she's got me on a testonsterone cream that i use once a day!! it seems to be working alright. so maybe you can ask your doctor about it!! good luck!

  • I think so..My drive disappeared after my 3rd child was born and I was breastfeeding her. I have been continuously breastfeeding since she was born in 2005--because I nursed her throughout my pregnancy and am weaning my son..I also went hypothyroid after she was born so it was a perfect storm of libido destruction for me. The only time I have any drive is during ovulation. Luckily my husband is both deployed and snipped!!!
