  • Sex Drive Stealer #10: You're Nursing

    You had your adorable bundle of joy months ago and lost (most) of the pregnancy weight, so why hasn't your sex drive returned? If you're still nursing, blame your breasts. As it turns out, prolactin, the hormone that's responsible for lactation, is a real buzz kill for the libido, decreasing your body's production of estrogen and testosterone. "This can lead to vaginal dryness and lack of sex drive," explains Dr. Millheiser.

    How to Feel Sexy Again: First, applaud yourself for investing in the health of your baby, says Dr. Millheiser, and remember that it's only temporary. After all, you're not going to be breastfeeding your baby forever! In the meantime, use plenty of lubricant and try not to feel frustrated at your body's slowness to feel arouse.
