Sex Drive after having a baby
Hi,
I am a new mother to a nine old month baby boy, I would just like to know if it is normal to have such a low sex drive after having a baby. I'm just never in the mood and i don't know whats wrong, if this is normal how long does it usually last?

It is common and is often due to a combination of factors - tiredness, having another focus, contraception. Try to make special time for yourself and your partner.
