Strange question...

I gave birth nearly 5 months ago. During the pregnancy, my libido was practically nonexistent. Now it's kicked into overdrive. I crave sex at least 4-5 times a day. Not that it's not great and all but is this normal and when will it go away? I love having sex with my husband but I can't seem to get satisfied but for a few hours and then it starts all over again!

    Talk to your Dr. if you're that concerned but I'm sure your hubby isn't concerned!

  • Are you breastfeeding? Because this puts serious flame under your libido. Lots of hormones come around when a woman breastfeeds.

  • Yes, I am breast feeding and we want to breastfeed till he's a year old. CRAP!! I don't think we can keep this up for that long.

  • It's just a hormone imbalance. I was like that a few years ago and my doctor said it's not good. Being on overdrive like that burns up your adrenal glands. Call your doctor and get things balanced out.

  • Don't listen to admckenzie. I think you are just fine. I kind of went through the same thing. It wasn't as bad as wanting it 4/5 times a day. I know I was excited to have my sexuality back though. Which in itself it rejuvenating.
