Sex after baby.. ever returns?

My husband and I have been together for 3 and a half years. We have always had an active sex life filled with pleasure. I had our son in Sept. and I still have no desire to have sex the way we used to. I am on Mirena, which I think has a little to do with it. But we also DO NOT under any circumstances want to have more children, and I think I'm terrified to have sex for fear of getting pregnant again. Any one else been there doen that? If so when does the love making come back to normal?

  • Wish I could help - I have the same problem! I am pretty sure the fear of getting pregnant again has a lot to do with my lack of desire. We got pregnant REALLY fast last time and the thought of another baby scares the crap out of me!! I hate to suggest it, but a drink or two helps for me. Sad but true.

  • do something you 2 haven't done in a long time. Try toys, go to the store together and u pick a toy you want him to use on you or whatever and tell him to find a toy he likes and just go all out.
