not wanting sex after birth of child
Hello DR before and even during my pregancy i was very sexually active with my husband, then baby came and i dont even want to think of it. I had natural birth with no pain killers and i think i made the right choice, i wanted to have the full experince of the birth of my son. Im very tried and i think that is the reason for not wanting sex. Its not the fact that i thik my body has changed cause i weigh 50kg and have no strech marks. Is this normal and will it ever go away?

It is very normal not to feel like sex when you have a young child. I think you have found the answer- that you are very tired. Try to make dedicated time just for you and your partner.
