    Effects Of Breastfeeding on SexBreastfeeding mother

     

    SEX AFTER DELIVERY

    There’s no required waiting period for intercourse after delivery, though most health care experts recommend you wait four to sex weeks to have sex again. This gives you time to heal following delivery or surgery.

    Between the late-night feedings and early-morning dirty diapers, however, sex may be the last thing on your mind. Your body is undergoing a lot of change during this time. This includes changes brought on by breastfeeding.

    Some women find that the extra attention to their breasts, as well as the engorged shape, make them feel less attractive. Others feel more attractive.

    All of these things are normal. Keep these factors in mind when you feel ready to be intimate with your partner again after the arrival of your baby.

    EFFECTS OF BREASTFEEDING ON SEX DRIVE:

    Breastfeeding can affect your sex drive. Research has found that women who are breastfeeding are more likely to delay resuming intercourse following the birth of their child than women who don’t breastfeed.

    After delivery, your estrogen level will fall, and the levels of two hormones, prolactin and oxytocin, will rise. These two hormones have very different impacts on your body, and each can interfere with your sex drive.

    The combination of increased prolactin and oxytocin may make you feel great pleasure from breastfeeding. Your emotional and physical intimacy needs may be met by breastfeeding your little one, so your sex drive may decrease. You may not feel the need or desire to seek affection from your partner.

    The opposite can happen too. The increased hormones and sensual touching can increase your sexual desire. The breasts are an erogenous zone. You may find that you’re more easily aroused thanks to the surging hormones and sensations in your body.

    If you think breastfeeding is affecting your sex drive, it’s important to know this is normal. Between hormonal changes and lifestyle interruptions after a baby’s arrival, your libido may peak and fall for a period. In time, your sex drive should return to what it was before the arrival of your baby.
