    Default Zero drive

    Is it normal to have absolutely no sex drive over a year after giving birth? Still breastfeeding and on zoloft for pnd.

    I don't know if it is normal but I am the same. Zero desire. I am breast feeding too.

    Breastfeeding and tiredness will do that. Could also be a side effect of the medication possibly.

    For me my desire doesn't come back until after weaning and getting my period back.

    My youngest is 17 months and I still have no sex drive I would love for it to return and but I'm beginning to think it never will. People tell me its lack of sleep but I'm not sure. In the mean-time I try to "oblige" on a semi-regular basis to keep DH happy...

    Have you guys seen the 30 days of nookie challenge? I don't know much about it, 35 weeks preg and less than zero drive! But I was thinking of giving it a go around the time when baby is 12 months old as I know this will be me also. If not, I may seriously consider a sex therapist.

    Zoloft totally killed my libido. I weaned off it for that reason, the gp put me on pristiq instead (which I didn't end up needing but that's besides the point). The zoloft was awful though, zero zero zero libido. Go talk to your gp OP, it's a common reaction but you don't need to accept it as normal
