Loss of Sexual Interest

Please help. I'm 23 and been married for 2 years but been together 4 1/2 years. Ever since birth of daughter 18 months ago, I have lost interest in sex. I do have some stress in my life and have been on the depo shot up until this month. I am trying to find a way to make me more energetic and want to be intimate with my husband. Please help. It is causing maritial problems. Willing to try anything before going on meds. Thanks.

  • I know after I had my daughter (I was 19 at the time) it took a long time before I was even interested a little, and even then it wasn't often. The birth of a child is a huge thing not only for your body, but for your life as a whole. When I ran into that problem, I sat down and talked with my husband and just explained that it was not any indication of how I felt about him, but that with all the changes in my body and in my way of living, I just wasn't as sexually motivated as I once was. And with time and his understanding and support, it came back. The other thing that I would mention, because you didn't say one way or the other, is if you are having any kind of problems with post-partem depression, that will also cause you to have a hard time falling back into the sexual swing of things. All else fails, talk to your doc and see what he/she thinks about it. Good luck, and God Bless!
