Ladies, did your sex drive fall off after childbirth, and if so, how long did it take to come back?
For women who have had children, did you experience a decrease of sex drive after giving birth. If so, approximately how long was it before you got back to your previous level of interest in sex?
For me, the lack of sex drive only lasted until I'd healed relatively well -- about a month -- before coming back to normal. However, the actual ability to perform at my previous level took about three months because of severe anemia. That said, I'm told my normal drive is a little on the high side anyway, so I won't be surprised if many women take much longer to get back to it.
I have giving birth five times (one passed away shortly after birth), had numerous miscarriages. And after each one my sex drive would disappear. The time frame was different with each.
The live births for the first two babies 3 months each. Also I did not have an appetite for food. I drank a lot of liquid.
For the third baby no sex drive for 9 months also same with food. But with this one I had found out I had miss carried twice. ( I was fertile a lot)
After the baby that died, 9 months to a year. Grieving process on top of what I normally go through after childbirth.
Now the last, that was exactly 3 yrs after. He is now 18 yrs old.
It was like I was going through a hiatus. I was so close to my 40's, when I hit 39. BAMM! Then for the next 5-7 yrs. MAN! I LOVED my 40's decade. Then it tapered off, for a few years, but is now stable in my beautiful 50's.
I hope this helps for the answer.
I'm wondering why the question is started with, 'ladies' as if men also go through childbirth? It's as bad as the phrase, 'if a pregnant woman,' presumably men get pregnant too but don't count.
I think all women are different, some go through depression after childirth and it seems to take longer than others

What happens when your partner's sex drive is much different from your own?Either your partner wants sex more than you, or you want sex more than your partner. How do you compromise or make up for this?
