Sex.


Ever since being pregnant and having my first baby, the idea of sex has been less than enticing. Prior to, I’m all for it but then the brain takes over and I get stressed. I then hit a spin cycle of the two emotions, of wanting to and not (almost like my brain is arguing with itself), and before I know it the moment disappears. Then I feel bad and spiral more. I wonder if this has anything to do with my appointments during pregnancy, with getting checked all the time (It always made me feel uncomfortable), or possibly even the time after when there was lingering scar tissue from my episiotomy stitches….any of which would be creating the mental block? It’s been three years.
