New Mom. NO SEX DRIVE. Here's What to Do.

New Mom. NO SEX DRIVE. Here's What to Do.

There’s no better feeling than being a new mommy. Theoretically speaking, that is. Of course, you’re happy to be holding your little bundle of baby in your arms. But let’s face it. Being pregnant wasn’t exactly a walk in the park and getting adjusted to your hormones shifting for the millionth time isn’t like a trip to your favorite department store.

And your sex drive? Where is it?! It seems like forever since you couldn’t wait to get home and get it on. It’s almost like it’s a distant memory. One that you’re not sure you’ll ever revisit again.

Exhale. All of what you’re going through is perfectly normal. It comes with the territory of birthing a child. Right now, it might seem like you’ll never get your inner sex kitten back, but there are some tricks that will bring you back to your old self again. Maybe even better.

Eat foods that balance out your hormones

There are foods that you can eat to stabilize your hormones naturally. Some that top the list are virgin olive oil, coconut oil and avocado oil (both contain oleic acid, a building block for hormones); grass-fed butter (it contains natural cholesterol that strengthens hormones); kale (it contains magnesium and zine---both are hormone stabilizers); free-range poultry and dairy (both have proteins to keep hormones balanced); sweet bell peppers (they have flavonoids that keep hormones healthy) and carrots (perfect for cell regeneration of hormones).

Also eat foods that increase your libido

While you’re at the grocery store, also pick up some foods that will boost your libido. Steak and leafy greens will give you more iron (which will give you more energy). Bananas and ginger will improve blood flow (even to your genitals). Blackberries are phytochemical-rich; that will enhance your sexual endurance. Also get some watermelon. It has citrulline in it. It helps to create an amino acid that drives up your libido too.

Use some lubrication

Sometimes new moms are not in the mood because sex is painful. It’s painful because their hormone imbalance is preventing them from producing natural lubrication. If that’s you, there’s nothing to be ashamed of. Pick up some K-Y Jelly. Even better, make some lubrication of your own. Click here to learn how.
