Many mothers experience this within 1-3 months following the birth of their child, but it’s usual for it to take longer.
Some mothers report that breastfeeding their infant makes them feel sensuous and erotic. This is due in part to oxytocin, a hormone involved in milk let-down and sexual stimulation.
It’s perfectly natural.
After delivery, the sex will be different. According to a study from 2005, 83 per cent of women had sexual issues in the first three months after their first delivery.
However, as the post-pregnancy month’s pass, that number decreases.
According to Healthline.com the following are the most typical concerns with sex after delivery:
- low libido
- vaginal dryness
- thin vaginal tissue
- loss of elasticity in vaginal tissue
- perineal tear or episiotomy bleeding
- pain “loose” muscles
- soreness and fatigue
