Did you lose your sex drive? Or did it go down? I read that this can happen especially when BF. But that it usually comes back after you start ovulating. Well my baby is 15 mo and my sex drive is still completely gone :( I don't want it to be. I feel off. I feel bad.

Yeah mine totally vanishes after babies. I think my daughter was around 18 months before mine came back... then I got pregnant again and away it went :P My second is about 6 months old now and I still have no drive.

Can I ask you how you and your DH dealt with it? How did it affect you relationship?

I lost mine. Only because I was single and unable to mingle until she was 2.5.

It was hard...... I would fake it for his sake about once a month and luckily I have a really understanding husband.  I wish I had better advice but my gyno told me to keep trying to fake it till I make it and it should come back and she was right. It's been in about the last 3 months that I've really put an effort in to making the time and energy for sex and I've noticed about the last month or so I'm the one initiating alot more and I'm actually in the mood for it and enjoying it again.

With my first one I had a crazy high sex drive before, during and after.

Now? Blahhhh. If it wasn't for the fact I'm going to be cleared by the doc near our wedding ann. And my poor husband got some once during my whole pregnancy I wouldn't be having sex any time soon.

Mine got higher, but I think that was in part to having worry free sex. Since I had a tubal. Since I've turned 30, my sex drive has gone through the roof. It's disgusting really, I feel like a 17 yo boy ffs lol.

Nope. Mine kept increasing . I'm nearly 32 now and its higher than ever. Thank goodness my DH is still horny like a teen boy . We go at it at least once a day sometimes twice.

Mine didn't go away. I got pregnant almost immediately after having my daughter. She is 9 months and I'm 30 weeks pregnant lol
