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.
Similarly one may ask, how long after breastfeeding does libido come back?
Still, it’s possible your sex drive may not return for months — even a year or longer, particularly if you’re breastfeeding. There’s even evidence to suggest that it can take 18 months or longer before many women find sex very or extremely pleasurable again.
