    It’s common to have a low libido in the weeks or even months after having a baby. In the first six weeks after delivery, you’re likely to be exhausted, and possibly sore and overwhelmed. Your body needs time to heal. And you’re dealing with the 24/7 demands of caring for a newborn. You’re likely to have less natural vaginal lubrication in the first four to six weeks after the birth due to your body’s decreasing level of estrogen during this time. If you’re breastfeeding your baby, this dryness may continue for as long as you continue to nurse. Or it may return slowly as your nursing sessions become less frequent. There are plenty of other reasons you may not feel like having sex right now. Adjusting to motherhood may be stressful or emotionally all-consuming. You may feel less attractive or less confident in your changing body at this point. You may fear becoming pregnant again, particularly if you are using a new form of contraception. Or you may be struggling with baby blues or postpartum depression.


    Trisha, I read your post. It seems interesting to me. after delivery a woman I think scattered. Her body changes and goes through several changes. In other words, her body opens and her bones move from each other at a far distance. I think she needs complete bed rest. Her diet should be full of necessary elements. These elements or food will help her body to recover from changes rapidly.
