    sex drive

    I have two children now. The youngest one is 11 months. I have found that my sexdrive is very low at the moment. Anyone else experienced this?
    Feel really bad for my husband.

    I know what you mean. For a time (actually several years for me) it was a case of 'choosing' to do it, rather than 'wanting' to do it. For the sake of your marriage it is worth making the effort.

    I and lots of other friends have experienced this problem. We went to see Dr Lauren Bramley (, who did a full work-up to see what irons and minerals we were lacking in - and for most of us our testosterone levels were barely there. She says this is completely normal at this stage in your life as your body has been through so much. She prescribed a gel helps your body to produce more testosterone.

    She actually is an annoying doctor in that she keeps you waiting for ages and always does what I think are too many tests, so you may wish to talk to your own GP about 'Testogel'.

    I found that when my LO was approx. 9-15 months old I seemed to have the lowest sex drive but figured I owed it to my husband to get it sorted pronto! Talking to your GP i s the best thing you can do - good luck!

    I recently watched a medical programme about sex and pregnancy. I found out that it takes at least 6 months after you stop breastfeeding to get your hormone levels back up to the prepregnancy sex drive you had before. I'm not sure if you are breastfeeding or not. But the fact that you have two children and one of them is under a year leaving you worn out doesn't help your drive right now. I agree with Fee that for the sake of your marriage it is worth the effort. It is a good idea to talk to your doctor to see if there is a hormonal imbalance.
