DEAR DEIDRE: SINCE our daughter was born six months ago, my girlfriend has lost her sex drive.
I’m 28 and she is 26. We’ve been together for three years and have a good relationship.
We used to have sex all the time but now it’s almost never. I was planning on asking her to marry me but the lack of sex is making me worried.
If I raise the subject she says she is always tired with looking after our baby all day. I know she gets up to do the night feeds but will her sex drive ever come back?
DEIDRE SAYS: Childbirth means hormonal changes, a massive lifestyle shift and sheer exhaustion.
Her sex drive can certainly return but you can help to speed it up.
Share chores and child-care when possible – you’ll find it’s far more tiring than any job. Show her lots of affection so she feels appreciated.
