I'm hoping it's ok to post this here. Dd 12 weeks ebf this is my 2 bf baby, but this time I'm experiencing "dryness" when trying to have sex with partner could this be down to hormones due to feeding? It's nothing to do with delivery (section as with 1st) completely relaxed, can only put it down to feeding, never happened first time feeding. Any experience?

Yeah I ve had the same thing up until recently- I'm b feeding my six month old. It's to do with the b feeding hormones - there's something on the nhs website about it if u look it up. So completely normal. I'm getting more of a wetness (sorry) back now and I suspect that's because I'm gradually reducing the amount I b feed now.

Will check out the website, thank you for replying! So glamorous this breastfeeding!

The midwife warned us about this after DS was born - definitely a thing.
