Management of postpartum loss of libido.


Following the birth of a child many physical, emotional and hormonal changes occur which can all have an impact. These include painful sex due to healing stitches or infection, low mood and depression and physiological changes due to breast-feeding or contraception. These can all affect the woman's sexual needs and impact on her relationship with her partner. Surveys of women postnatally suggest that there is an unmet need for discussing these issues and offering sensitive help and advice.
