So apparently my wife has issues with her libido.
She never had issues with these kind of things. She was sexually active (wish she was a bit more 😂) and she was enjoying her sexuality. We never had problems with our sex life.
So after she gave birth with c section she had her recovery time and when time passed she was on her way back to where we left our sex life. The ppp happened and inevitably changed everything. She is over a year now fro her first episode. We are having sex for some months now again. But from the start (which is kinda ok regarding the ppp) she couldn’t enjoy it. She wanted it but she couldn’t let go and enjoy it. Also she can’t get to orgasm which she never had problem with and this get’s to her a lot.
We have made a lot of talking and trying different things and changing some others but nothings seems ti really help her.
She describes it as “ i want to have sex and orgasm because i know i will feel nice but i feel i’m not up for it. I just don’t feel horny.” (Excuse me for the language) She has also said to me that when she thinks about having sex she sometimes back off because she thinks that she won’t have an orgasm and won’t enjoy it all that much. So sometimes she won’t even try.
I know and she knows that partially this is kinda normal things that may happen after ppp and it’s rooted to the illness itself and the drugs. She also has talked with her psychiatrist about it but she herd nothing that made her feel better.
We talked last night again about it and i proposed that she come to the group and ask women who had the same experience as her but she is shy about it so i ask for her.
Does any of you had the same issues after ppp? How did you overcome it? Is it going to get better after quitting the meds? How long did it take?
Any advise and guidance will be very helpful.
And also if any husband reads this i could use some advise too!
Thanks a lot from both of us!
