Things are fine now, but having a child changes your sleep patterns significantly.
Instead of having sex at night, we usually do it one day a weekend while our son naps." —Kathryn K., 353.
Whether you give birth vaginally or your baby enters the world via C-section, childbirth can throw your sex life for a loop.

No, it’s not the plot of a particularly cheesy porn movie, it is a scientific fact: Orgasm releases the hormone oxytocin, which is tied to the “milk ejection reflex,” commonly called “milk letdown.” Milk can start dripping, or in some cases even actively start spraying from your nipples — and all over your partner.

"Three weeks after giving birth to twins via an emergency C-section in October 2013, the ol' man and I were back at it again. But for maybe the first eight months after childbirth, the idea of sex was incredibly disgusting to me.My husband and I spent a lot of time during my pregnancy reassuring each other that we didn’t have to change just because we were having a kid.Before we’d gotten pregnant, we were fairly open-minded sexually and we didn’t see why we’d have to give that up with parenthood. But doctors give the okay to get back on the horse (so to speak) six weeks postpartum — and that seemed like an eternity. After the utter exhaustion and starvation of the first trimester, I felt hale, hearty and horny.That is, until I resumed afterbirth bleeding for a ridiculous eight additional weeks. But when we eventually started again, I realized I could segment my sex life into three stages. Of course I would indulge my husband, but I was so turned off by the idea of it.It must have been a hormonal thing, because I've heard the same from other women, and my level of disgust was extreme.
