Anyone else have zero sex drive in the first trimester? For people that are further along-does this go away?
Before pregnancy we had a really healthy and regular sex life but since getting pregnant ive had ZERO sex drive. Im 10w3d today and still having low grade 24/7 nausea and the thought of having sex makes me queasy! My husband has been great about it but i feel a little bad to be honest. We’ve had sex a couple of times on the rarre day i feel ok but thats about it.
Anyone else ?

mrsalexander: You are absolutely not alone! Mine was at a zero, and at 15 weeks has not come back 🙁 Much like your hubby, mine has been amazing, which is why I make an effort to be sexual about once a week (and, it is a very subpar performance at best).
I have asked close friends if theirs came back, when it came back, etc, and so far those close to me have said their sex drive remained low thru pregnancy (but, everyone differs!) It is what it is, I suppose.

mrsalexander: Mine went away pretty drastically during the first trimester, and while I’m still not super horny, Darling Husband and I do occasionally have sex. I’m in the third trimester, and he’s just been the best about the whole thing.

Mine hasn’t come back (14 weeks this monday) but I also make an effort about once a week since it’s important I know and hubby has been so great. A few times I have been in the mood but mostly not…

Nope, mine never came back! For some people it does come back, but I think for the majority it really doesn’t. We still had sex on and off, just not very much. The most sex we had was the last few weeks thinking it would help things along but it didn’t do anything and wasn’t that comfortable either <br /><br />
It will probably be gone for awhile after birth, too. I call it (and breastfeeding) nature’s form of birth control/birth spacing since that is what it is

mrsalexander: mine lasted the whole time 🙁 I was waiting for some sweet second trimester hormone hornyness but it never happened! Now my baby is 7 months old and I’m still breastfeeding and my sex drive isn’t much higher (but still much better than when I was pregnant). Good luck!

My sex drive was/is very low but we have had sex a few times when I have been feeling better than death! Even though I haven’t been completely “in the mood” prior it has actually helped me to feel better and it is nice to have some normality!

mrsalexander: Yeah, I could take or leave sex (still) and I’m 14w2d. They say your sex drive comes back in the 2nd trimester.. I’m still waiting for mine to come back. Husband has been working a ton of hours, so he’s pretty tired a lot of the times, he hasn’t complained or commented at all.

I was too tired the first trimester but we made time for sex. In the second trimester, I started getting my energy back and the sex drive came back, too. Now that I’m towards the end of the second trimester (24w3d), I’m going back to being tired again. Blah.

Oh, I had ZERO sex drive during the first trimester, both times. It was all I could do just to get through the day, much less have sex. It’s totally normal to feel this way. I know some women have a heightened sex drive during pregnancy, or certain periods during pregnancy, but for me, my sex drive is much lower pretty much throughout the whole thing. If it’s not nausea it’s pelvic pain or generally just feeling huge & gross. Don’t worry… my sex drive came back after I delivered (hence the second pregnancy!).
