I am 24 years old.. I have a 2 year old and a 7 month old. BEFORE I had either of my girls, my husband and I were constantly having sex. It was a need to me. We would have sex ATLEAST twice a day, everyday and when he was at work, at times I would even self-plessure. Then I got pregnant. He deployed for 7 months came home and of course, not seeing him for that long, we got back on our routine. Everything seemed normal. But after I had my daughter, it died down a lot. I thought it was because I was always tired and didn't have the energy to have sex.. I just wanted to sleep when I had free time which I thought was normal, being a new mom. But we would have sex only a couple times a week. I got pregnant with my second daughter when my oldest was six months old. But now I have absolutely NO desire whatsoever to want to engage in sex or any sort.of sexual encounters. I thought I was experiencing the same feelings after having a newborn but she is 7 months old now and nothing has changed! Im never horny. I dont get turned on like I used to. Sex doesn't feel good to me anymore and I feel like its almost impossible to orgasm. And i dont even have the desire nor have i self pleasured since I've had my youngest. Is it just me? I dont know what i can do and i dont have medical coverage anymore so i can't turn to my doctors. And i really dont want it to come between me and my husband but I feel SO bad for him. I love him so much, I just dont know what I can do! I was wondering if any moms have experienced this or are currently in the same boat as me. Im 24 years old, I shouldn't not want to have sex. Somebody please help me!!
