I’m a 25-year-old woman. Ever since I gave birth to my first child in August last year, I don’t enjoy sex. I don’t even think about it. What could be the problem?

There are millions of women around the world who feel as you do after having a baby. If you are breast feeding, then your sex hormones are low. If you are not, then this could be caused by tiredness, adjusting to your lifestyle, and new roles and relationship between

you and your partner. It may also be that your body looks different and sex feels different. The solution is to ensure that you make time alone for yourself. Look after your body, wear

clothes that make you feel good, and discuss new ways of being sexual with your partner.
