Even though my baby is now four months old, I am still not interested in sex

DEAR DEIDRE: EVEN though my baby is now four months old, I am still not interested in having sex.

I am 24, my partner is 27 and our bedroom life used to be amazing. My hormones are still all over the place. I get emotional and I worry about Covid.

My doctor gave me anti-depressants but I worry I will feel tired if I take them. I need to be alert to look after my baby.

I sometimes dream of having sex and I feel like making the effort but when it comes to it, I am just not interested. My partner says he understands but then he gets moody. Is there something wrong with me or is it just being a new mum?

DEIDRE SAYS: It can take a while for hormones to settle back to pre-pregnancy levels. 

Don’t fuel your anxiety by fretting about your sex drive. It will return in time. My e-leaflet Sex Problems After A Baby explains.

Feeling anxious may be a sign of post-natal depression, though. Contact Pandas Foundation (pandasfoundation.org.uk, 0808 1961 776) for support.
