Useless in the Bedroom

I am 8 months post pregnancy and I don't feel in the mood very often anymore. I feel doughy and exhausted. I am also taking zoloft for ppd.

My partner says that he understands that it will take awhile to get back into the swing of things, but he is always making cracks about not getting any. (It has been about 2 weeks). Just recently he was whining because I didn't have sex with him on his birthday.

Anyone have any tips.

I have a MIrena IUD. I am not sure if that kills libido like other birth control methods. Any depression med you would recommend?

If it releases a hormone usually it lowers sex drive.
I'm sorry I can't make recommendations same thing here but I just take mine every other day instead.

mmm First, make sure he knows that making cracks at you isn't going to help anything. Second, it could be your meds or your IUD. I use to have issues with libido when i was on BC so i got the IUD without hormones. I love it. My periods are heavier but I deal with that. Try to put something sexy on one night and see how you feel. Ask your hubby to give you a massage to help you relax and see if that will put you in the mood. Do you get more in the mood when you start having sex or are you just turned off the whole time? i use to not want to take my clothes off. Like I was to lazy to even want to take my clothes off for sex. It sucked and i didn't know why i felt that way. I honestly just had sex even though I didn't want to. I knew it was something my husband needed and i wanted to make him happy.

Oh hun I guess talk to your gyno. But making cracks may be his way of just trying to make light of a situation thats bothering you, letting you know its not that big of a deal to him and he loves you no matter what. But i guess that would all depend on what hes actually saying. If what he says is hurting you then talk to him about it and see if he stops. Im sorry you feel that way. I hope you feel better soon.

I've heard Wellbutrin doesn't mess with libido.

I'd feel sad if my hubby and I didn't have sex very often or if he didn't give me birthday sex. I make cracks about it too. Better to try to be humorous about it than to be showing you're bummed out and frustrated.
I'd fake it till I make it and talk to my doctor. I'm sure it's hard on both of you and you should come to some middle ground.
