Mine left with my placenta as well...it's been over two years since my son was born and I still really could care less if I have sex or not. My hubby is totally understanding but it really makes it hard since I really want another baby...just don't want the process that needs to happen first ;) . I honestly have to schedule sex or it won't happen (not romatic sounding but when we tried to just let it happen when it happened and we ended up going 7 months without it)

It could be hormonal. Have you had your hormone levels checked? I know that my sex drive went down when I was pregnant and it is taking some time to come back - my doc also thinks I'm in perimenopause a bit early and my hormone levels have been showing as low.

What I try and do, even if I don't really feel like it, is schedule time for sex with my husband. It helps me keep that part of our relationship alive and it has been helping with how I feel hormonally.

What you could try to do is schedule time for it (not super romantic, but it does help) and also make an appointment with your doctor to check for anything physical that may be causing problems for you.
