    Does epidural affect sex desire?
    An_249795 posted:
    I was over due and I had no dilation before my baby was born so the doctor had to operate a C-section. It has been over 16 months now. My baby is happy and healthy. It is quite hard for me to think about sex compare now and before having a child birth. I rather be in front of the computer or in my husband's arms but I don't get horny, not even wanting to watch porn.

    I did research online and saw other mothers were also experiencing the same problem. But, I am not sure if this is related to different drugs that were injected into my spinal before my C-section.

    Lately, my spin feels a little sore where the injection was at and makes me suspect if there are more side effects after having a baby.

    Can someone share their experience with me? Did your back pain go away? Did you sexual desire come back? What did you do and how long did it take? Thank you
