Mum’s shock confession on her lack of desire for sex since having young children has hundreds of other women saying they feel exactly the same way.
After reading the post other women admitted that they felt the same, with some saying they didn’t care if they never have sex again.
“Dcquinn” revealed that her youngest child is just 16 weeks old and that she also has a three-year-old and a 15-year-old.
She told fellow users on the Mumsnet site that she feared there was something wrong with her because she’d gone off sex and that she ‘felt bad’ for her husband who has the ‘patience of a saint’.
She explained: ‘I feel so bad for him, I just wonder what the hell is wrong with me?
‘We have been together for 14 years and I still fancy him loads.
‘I have a 15-year-old and my two youngest are three and 16 weeks. But I have felt like this before I had the younger two. So what is wrong with me?’
Far from being alone, plenty of other women reassured her, with many saying they felt caring for young children and holding down a job left them with little space for sex when the prospect of sleep was more tempting.
