I'm four months postpartum and have a total lack of sex drive. Deep down I love my husband to bits but since my little boy was born he just irritates the hell out of me. I can’t bear to be touched or receive affection let alone anything more. I’m so conscious our relationship is going down the pan. He's completely understanding and not pushing or pressuring me but I’m worrying!

Is this normal after birth!? I see people who end up pregnant straight away after having a baby and I’m over here thinking i couldn’t imaging anything worse we’ve barely kissed let alone anything more!

I do feel the same. We've only had sex twice since my baby born five months ago. I think it's normal especially if you're breastfeeding as you've been touched all day, you just don't want more contact.

Ohhhhh I feel this girl! I am three months postpartum. I am repulsed by him touching me and I even get angry. And I feel so horrible saying it because I do love him so much. I think the birthing experience plays a big part in it too! But hopefully it dies off for both of us. I do hear of this happening. I don't think it's anything to worry about just yet!
