Breastfeeding and sex drive
Is it possible that my wife is experiencing a low sex drive because she is breastfeeding? Pre-baby, she had an extremely healthy sex drive (probably greater than mine), and post-baby it seems non-existent. The baby is 13 months and she's getting ready to stop breastfeeding (although she's having trouble letting go of it, and that's probably for another post). I've read that breastfeeding can alter some hormones and result in a lower sex drive.
I'm sure there's a lot of other stuff going on, for both of us. We're both extremely tired all of the time, and it's about all we can do to work, keep the house standing, and make sure the little guy is receiving everything he needs from us.
But, still, I'm hoping that after breastfeeding, our sex life returns somewhat. We're still having sex, but her enthusiasm for it is far from what it used to be.
