What Gail said is possible. Have you had your hormones checked, they could possibly be out of balance?

Have you been under more stress lately? Any number of things could be the cause, I suggest seeing your doctor!!!

Good luck, mom!!!

It's kind of hard to want sex when you're exhausted, sex being much further down the list of human needs than rest/sleep. There are so many women out there who are working full time AND taking care of the home and children too. If more men did their share around the house they might be getting a whole lot more sex than they are now...

How much does your husband do at home? Maybe share out the tasks a bit better? Try to ensure that you get some down time, some "me time" at the weekend? Put yourself first for once?

OTOH, if he is pulling his weight then maybe look into a weekend away to reconnect? Is there anybody who could take your children for a weekend? Sometimes you need to get out of your roles as parents and get back into lover mode ...
There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.
