I no longer feel like having sex since breaking up with the father of my new-born baby. Is it

maybe because I’m depressed?

Dr Eve responds:

There is no need to label your feelings as an illness, unless you have had depression

before or you may feel as if you have postpartum depression now. You name two traumatic events; a break up at a very vulnerable time in your life, plus the trauma and joy of having

a baby. Talk to someone about your feelings. Don’t worry about sex now.
