I used to love sex. Now i cant stand the thought of it. I still love hubby and find him very attractive, but i cant stand even being touched. All started when i became pregnant and i thought it was just the hormones. Now DD is 4 months and I still am disgusted by the thought of having sex. Could it be the hormones from breastfeeding? Anyone else ever go through this? Its ruining my relationshipAnswer Question

No, it's not the hormones. The hormones can make you want sex more. Oxytocin is called the love hormone and it is also the hormone that causes orgasms. Some women can sometimes have orgasm type feelings when they breastfeeding. Some women feel like having sex more. They may feel more comfortable with their body from breastfeeding.
It's common for mothers to be exhausted and not feel like sex. This isn't because of breastfeeding. Since you say it started when you became pregnant it could be this exhausted factor. It could be a psychological factor for you. You may have some kind of issue with being a mother and a lover. If this is the case you and/or you and your husband may benefit from counseling.
