Hi. Since having a baby a year and a half ago I have completely lost my libido. I stopped breast feeding 10 months ago and I have tried going to the doctors, but they tell me that it will only take time and that it could take up to 5 years to get back to normal. I have also tried homeopathic remedies to boost my libido, but without any results...My partner is understanding, but I really want help to overcome this problem. If anyone at all can help I would be so grateful!!! :)

  • It could be that you are just plain tired from taking care of your new baby!! I think most of us experience a lack of libido when all of our energy is put into raising our children. I know I went through it...so your not alone. But, I know that doesn't solve your problem.Look into the possibility that it could be a fluctuation in your hormonal levels which could easily happen after having a baby. An imbalance of the ratio of estrogen to progesterone can lead to an oversupply of estrogen (Estrogen Dominance). Some of other symptoms of too much estrogen, besides a 'lost libido', are fatigue, water retention, weight gain, sugar imbalances (food cravings), and headaches. This might not be your problem, but you didn't mention any other symptoms so I am just relaying what I went through.You said your doctor said it could take up to 5 years to feel better???!!! Maybe you should see a new doctor as that is definitely not a sufficient answer. Get a new doctor and discuss the possibility of a hormonal imbalance. Hope this helped a little.
