Do you find breastfeeding effects your sex drive? Does it interfere with sex?

I don't know if it's my breastfeeding or just the fact that I had a child...Just for the past two months (Since I have been TTC) has my sex drive came back like it was before I gave birth...but it still isn't where it use to be...It does affect our sex life since we co-sleep...tend to hender those special moments...

It sure did mine until AF returned. I just really wasn't interested in sex at all. Then once AF returned I've been wanting it a lot more. I'm sure ttc has something to do with it, but I think it's mostly the hormone changes since I just got my cycle back.

I haven't really noticed any difference--mind u now that I'm working days and he's working nights it's hard to find the time.

Not really. My sex drive never goes away, lol. My dh is always the one with the "headaches" Its usually just timing thats the problem. He works third shift so we are rarely in bed together, so we have to steal the rare times when both kids are napping.

It usually effects mine. I find I am the same way. When AF, returns it seems to improve. I have problems with dryness when I am bfing and I think that has a lot to do with it.

Yes, it totally affects my sex drive. I got it back after I quit nursing Zack tho, so I expect to get it back once I'm done nursing this one too.
