As a sexuality clinician and educator, Marlene recognises that all people have the right to access sexual and reproductive health services and information.
I'm a mother of a 29 month old baby. I'm currently on triphasil since I gave birth to my child. I had a normal sex drive until last year, as I experience low sex drive. In fact I don't crave making love at all. Is there something wrong with me and what must I do to boost my sex drive?
First thing I would do is go off triphasil> it could be adding to your low desire - low desire after having a baby is common. you want to take out any factors that could be impacting on this: talk to your doctor or clinic sister about inserting a coil /IUD rather than a hormonal pill or injection. This may make a huge difference to your sexual desire and pleasure. Always always consider any negative factors in your relationship - these are primary reasons women loose desire. So find ways to talk about any relation ship problems that may be getting in the way of your sexual desire
