Anyone else have no sex life? When I was pregnant, I lost all interest in sex. Thankfully, my husband was super patient & understanding (husband of the year!). I was hoping it would get better after I had DS, but it hasn't. DS is almost 11 months old, and I have really no desire. I'm taking Loryna (generic for Yaz) as birth control - I'm wondering if that isn't the culprit.
Other factors are I did suffer pretty badly from PPD, but feel like I've gotten over that hump. Also, DH travels for work a lot (gone most of the week every week). I'm working 40-50 hours/week, have a 1.5 hour commute, & am maintaining the house while taking care of DS. Frankly, I know part of it is because some days/weeks, I'm exhausted.
I've never had a super huge sex drive, but enough to satisfy my husband. When we were TTC, I had much more of a sex drive, but I'm not sure if that's because I wanted a baby or because I was finally of the pill.
DH is home all week this week & making a super effort to help so everything isn't on my shoulders. He is really into Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & MMA. When home during the week, he usually goes to the gym for classes (they are after DS goes to bed). He stayed home last night to hang out with me and we had tentively planned on having sex then - however, I fell asleep at about 8pm on the couch.
When I thought about it on my way to work this AM, I got sick to my stomach. When you figure 9 months of pregnancy w/ no sex drive and the last almost 11 months without much sex (maybe 2x/month) I felt like a total failure of a wife. DH says he's understanding, but I know it bothers him.
I have a physical w/ my general practitioner in March, so I hope to bring it up then. In the meantime, I might go off BC until I see her and see if that helps.
