Maybe go to the doc and see if there's anything they can do for you?

I you are breastfeeding, that is a natural respnse. Since breastfeeding is the biologically normal thing to do, the lessening of lubrication for some women is thought to be part of the bodies natural protection from getting pregnant again very soon after giving birth. If you are exclusively breastfeeding AND baby is less than 6 months old AND you cycle has not yet returned, then breastfeeding is an excellent (ie more effective than the pill). You must meet all 3 criteria though. I have breastfed all 3 of mine - the youngest (25 months) still nurses several times per day since we practice child led weaning. For me once my cycles returned, which varies from woman to woman (for me it was around 7-8 months with each child), lubriction returned to much more normal levels. Until it did we used LOTS of lube.

Another thing that effects lubrication is age - for most women as you gt older th lubrication will be different (and usually less) as you get older.

I've never given birth, but I have had issues with my body creating enough lubrication on its own. It's really frustrating - you're turned on, you want your partner, and nothing. It's gotten better now, but I've found that as long as I can get things started with plenty of lube at the beginning, I've produced my own later on. My boyfriend has also taken to making me orgasm before we do anything regarding penetration; we've found this helps the natural lube situation as well.

There could be a few factors as to why you cant get wet enough. The breastfeeding is one of them. I had that problem with my first son while i was breastfeeding. It could also be that your body isnt fully ready to have sex again. and therefore you are not aroused enough before having sex. if you arent breastfeeding try playing with your nipples to stimulate your senses. (always worked for me)or ask your doctor.

If you are having problems in this area talk to your gynecologist because it's usually a hormone issue.

I haven't had this problem but it could be caused for the hormonal changes your body is undergoing so talk to you ob/gyn about it.

Good information. I plan to breastfeed, so I will keep this in mind and not feel bad if I need a little help with lubrication.

I never had any issues with that, but we didn't have sex for some time after giving birth for other reasons.

It can be, especially as other's said, with breastfeeding.

I actually experienced a condition called "vaginal atrophy" while I was nursing. It sounds scarier than it is, but it's basically due to low estrogen, in a more extreme sense than what is normal. I didn't produce ANY natural lubricant, and it was so bad that if we tried to have intercourse it felt like tiny razor blades inside of me the entire time, even with the help of lube. My hubby actually ended up with small abrasions and cuts on his penis every time as well. It wasn't enjoyable for either of us.

Do to hormonal issues which directly affected my supply quite severely (and a hard headed kiddo who refused the bottle and all ways of supplementing formula) I was forced to wean her cold turkey at 4 months old - and as soon as my period returned, so did my lubrication for the most part.
