Sex Drive After Breast Feeding

Lactating mothers should understand that if they are disinterested in sex right while they are breast feeding, they are not abnormal Most women lose sex drive after breast feeding because a newborn baby is extremely demanding and all the women just want to rest after the baby has fed and gone to sleep.

Exhaustion plays a big role when it comes to sex drive and being a new mother. Only the mother can satisfy the baby's demand for milk, be it at three o'clock in the morning. Therefore, sex take a back seat and it is natural that the sex drive will reduce.

Breast feeding, changing the baby, rocking him to sleep, and attending to his cries leaves a woman totally exhausted and it is natural that she will not be receptive to her partner's advances. This is one aspect of sex drive after breast feeding. The other aspect is biological where women have no control over it.

Breast feeding suppresses ovulation. This is nature's way of stopping a new pregnancy from occurring too soon after the birth of a child. This means that estrogen circulating in a lactating woman's body is quite low and leads to vaginal dryness and reduced libido.

This said, not all women experience low sex drive after breast feeding. There are some who have no problems with their libido. Some women find the entire process of breast feeding very erotic and they can end up having increased sex drive, and of course the partner welcomes this! Breast feeding a baby allows a woman to appreciate her body like never before and this can have a positive effect on her sex drive.

Therefore, it is safe to conclude that each woman is different and her sex drive after breast feeding will vary from another breast feeding mother.
