What do you do about sexual urges when your partner is postpartum?

To my new dads, or dads with newborns; how do you deal with your horniness/libido while your partner is going through postpartum and told by her doctor that she can’t have sex for a few weeks while she heals?

Does you libido decrease during this time or does it stay the same?

Is it difficult not being able to have sex for 4-6 weeks while she recovers?

  • Don't think my husband ever struggled with this. I gave him lots of handjobs and oral during that time. He even gave me oral a few times. I only waited 2-3 weeks after each of my kids to have sex so it wasn't too long of a wait.

  • *Of course my masturbation increased
    *She was ok with fellatio on me.
    *We talked about clit-only cunnilingus but we were reluctant because of what orgasm contractions would do.

    • Orgasms contractions are actually good for new moms to help shrink the uterus. This can happen naturally from breastfeeding so it's not a must or anything but can be helpful

    • @Apple1996 I resumed after a while, anyway. But something unexpected happened. When I went down town and was getting a good review, she started LACTATING! I had to stop what I was doing and round up the baby.

    • Yess that can happen. My hubby will drink it for me if I start leaking during sex

  • With a new baby in the house sex was the last thing on my mind.

    • Thanks for the MHO😎
