I'm sorry if I'm not posting this is the right area (first time posting/visiting this forum). I have a 15 month old DD and I need some advice from other nursing mamas. I have not had a PP period yet and my sex drive is literally NIL! My poor DH has been hanging on by a thread these past few months and I'm starting to get desperate and look into herbs/foods that might bump up my libido to SOMETHING.
I keep reading about maca root, seems to be the new craze. Is this safe to take while nursing? I have no plans to wean anytime soon (and DD doesn't seem to have any plans in that direction either). We still nurse day/night, although, I'm looking into possibly limiting the night nursing (I received advice from my local LLL member about trying to wean at night between 3-5AM and this possibly helping me get my cycle back).
I'm hoping that once I am ovulating again, I'll get some libido back (or at least maybe not have it be so painful when we try?). Also would like to try to have another baby in the next few months.
I never imagined THIS would be the hardest thing about having a baby.
Thanks in advance for any wisdom you can provide!!
