What is wrong with me? :(

Maybe someone else is going through this

I'm young. I'm only 21 years old. Rewind 2 years- I had a nice libido and my husband and I enjoyed a great sex life. Then I got pregnant. I was so sick and uncomfortable during my entire pregnancy that sex wasn't always super enjoyable for me. I lost my libido big time.

Now my daughter is 8 months old, and my libido is still just as low if not lower. I thought that once my post partum hormones leveled out that id be able to return to my great sex life.

And I'm not saying that my husband is bad at sex. Not at all. But I'm almost never in the mood.. I try to talk to my husband and ask if there's something I could do to improve our sex life but he swears it's fine.

I miss my libido!! What's wrong with me?!

Are you suffering from depression by chance?

Not at all. Sleep deprivation, yes lol. Along with the typical feelings with getting used to my new body that I'm sure everyone goes through. I don't feel as sexy as i used to.

All pretty normal.

Try more foreplay for longer with extra lube.

You can also mention it to your OB.

You might just be tired still. Relax i would be more worried if your kid is 3 and you still don't feel like having sex. I just had a baby a month ago and i feel the same and i have 3 children. I usually feel normal when they are about a year and i get back to normal.

Hormones may still be out of whack.  Talk to your OB/GYN

Give yourself time and don't put pressure on it

Get rest... Lack of sleep isn't going to help

Also... Your hormones are still trying to get back to an even keel... I think you're normal

Sleep deprivation most definitely can do it!
