Sex After Kids: How Often Do You Get It On These Days?

Posted by   + Show Post

Sex? Sorry, what? What with lack of sleep, postpartum body self-consciousness (or plain-old postpartum pain), stress, interruptions - it's a wonder second children are even conceived at all!



How has your sex life been since having kids? Worse, the same, or maybe even better than before? How do you keep the spark alive?

I'd say 3-4 times a week. I'm usually the one that says "hey you wanna?!" My husband says "i'm tired." lol I'm not thrilled about my post baby body... but it is what it is. If I had a choice of a perfect body or a baby. I'd still pick the baby without hesitation.

 There's a Spark? It's more of "THE KIDS ARE ASLEEP AND IT'S NOT 9PM YET AND I STILL HAVE SOME ENERGY LEFT."

It'll be 5 years in 4 weeks since I've last done the deed... Aaahhh, being a single mom. Sometimes has a down side.

After 1st we got back to almost normal but ever since my 2nd was born I have no drive and it doesn't help that all DH talks about regarding sex is bjs.

I miss our old sex life, after ds1, 3-4 times a week now its like 2-3 times a month :(

My husband is ALWAYS frisky, so it's really up to me...sometimes I'm in the mood a lot, other times I have no interest at all!

it goes in waves.  Sometimes it's better, sometimes it's worse.

After my second child, my ex and I never had sex again. We got divorced. After our first it was rare. But really, in my first marriage, he was having sex quite often, it just wasn't with me.

In my second marriage, well it's always been frequent except during deployments.

 Our sex is AMAZING! I admit I lost my sex drive after having my DD, but I forced myself to get over it (by always giving in to my husband) and the more we did it, the more I enjoyed it. The more I enjoyed it, the more I craved it! Now, every time we hit the sack it's the best I've ever had!

We usually go at it about 4 times a week!
