I don't know about you ladies but lately I've been a lot more moodier and have absolutely zero sex drive. At first I was blaming the hormones whenever my cycle would make a full rotation again but lately, I've found myself moody most of the time. My poor SO is doing nothing wrong but I seem to snap or constantly find something to get mad at him for. Most times, I bite my tongue though or just try to forget about it because I know it's me that's the problem, not him.
My sex drive has also dropped completely. The past three months I've been avoiding contact with my SO other than a kiss here or there when he leaves for work. I can't seem to shake this either. My SO brought it up and asked if something was the matter and all I could say was, "I don't know".
Any of you ladies experience this and know how to get out of it?
Im really sorrry that you are going through that! I am not feeling the same way but have heard of a friend that did kind of like that. She went to the ob and was put on anti depressants for I think less than a year and then was fine.
I would consider talking to your OB about it and Im sure she/he would have suggestions, I say that just because you said you can 'shake' it and its bothering you.
I've had a low sex drive these past few months too. I'm not moody, just tired. Also, the crib in our bedroom is not helping (it's a one bedroom apartment so it's the only option for now). I figure it'll get better once Marcos is sleeping nights, and also once he has his own bedroom when we move in the Spring.
Well what gets you in the mood? Sometimes it doesn't help when men feel like not really giving you some foreplay before. What I mean is giving you a nice back rub, trying to connect you like staring into your eye (all are examples) but I know after a baby the wham bam thank you ma'am is out the door. We have to get worked up.
Thanks Ladies. My SO is good at the foreplay part, it's just that I'm usually not in a very good mood for him to get close enough to try. Ugh. I really do hope this ends soon or I'm going to have to tell my doctor about it. Also, I love how you said, "wham bam thank you ma'am" is out the door icymommy. That did make me crack a smile.
Hugs!! I can tell you I'm not in the mood very often these days either...let's be honest...I'm tired!! By the time I finally get to bed most nights it's super late and I'm exhausted. I agree with the suggestion of talking to your dr too if it's really bugging you.
