After all of that, my question is this: Are there any herbs that can help?
*I'm also nursing our 2 month old so I know this is a factor of not being in the mood.
Thanks ladies. I hope you can help me.
Are you really tired too? If you are, I suggest getting thyroid, b12 and vit d levels checked. Easy blood tests. That might help. Hang in there. It's natural child spacing!
After my third was born, the doctor asked me if I had questions about birth control. I said, "Separate bedrooms". It's what happens.
One person suggested Fennel, but i don't think it is working thus far.
It really really sucks, if you find anything that works please please let me know! It really hard on a marriage.
SAHM to 4 cats, DS 5/09, DD 3/12 and 3# due 4/15. Home birthing, non vax, anti circ, co-sleeping, breastfeeding, real food eating pretty darn crunchy mama.
My LO is now 8 mo old and things are so much better now. I would just give your body time to be intersted again.

Of course you should take that with a grain of salt because Huz and I have been, umm, "intimate" maybe 10 times in DD's 13 months of life.
I blame the breastfeeding, but I don't think any of us would have it any other way.
i hear you! during the day, i cannot WAIT for my dh to come home, i have the best daydreams ever of what i want to do to him, and then the second that we are able to do it, i just want to go to sleep. he either has to completely coax me into it, to the point where the first ten minutes or so are complete torture! (its amazing how annoying romantic kisses can get when youre tired) or i have to fake being totally into it, and then eventually once everything starts feeling good, i am back in the mood. those two things are what help me.... (i know they dont sound very appealing haha)
It should come back after a few months.
My DS is 6 months old, and I've yet to have any desire to dtd. I want to want to, but it's just not there.
I'm with audmommy about feeling "touched out"! I think it's common with people who ap... You spend all day and night with your lo, and when it's time for so's to get some love, you'd rather just sprawl out on the couch by yourself!
The sad part is, I know that I should make a better effort but I'm so darn tired and touched out.
DH has been super patient but our daughter is now 21 months old. Shouldn't I be getting some 'pep' back? I'm not even having any 'sexy' dreams. Arrgh!
Proud mom of an inquisitive, breastfeeding, babywearing, cosleeping 9 month old boy and a talkative curious 4 year old girl.
I am not touched out at all! I'd loved to be touched by someone that doesn't drool uncontrollaby, or wants to grab all my facial features. I am hoping it picks up though. I miss missing sex!

For me, once AF returned (which was at 17 months pp), it was like I was a raging sex maniac, lol. It was great to finally remember what libido was!!
This time around I'm only 5.5 weeks pp. No sex yet, but I can't say I feel *quite* as asexual this time around. .. I think hormones can fluxuate greatly not only from person to person but even between different pregnancies/births!
