The last time we had really good sex was before my wife became pregnant

DEAR DEIDRE: THE only occasions I can remember my wife and I having really good sex were before she became pregnant.
We used to have a great time together in bed but after our first child, our son, was born she never seemed as keen.
We used condoms and the withdrawal method, but she hated these, so again there was no sex.
This went on for a while and I was seriously thinking about a separation. Then our sex life started again – and she got pregnant again.
It has now been almost a year since we had good sex. We have only been married for four and a half years and I don’t think our sex life should have dwindled to nothing.
I am 27, she is 26. This is far too young to have no sex life.

DEIDRE SAYS: I agree it will damage your marriage to let your love life die away.
This sounds like a combination of unrewarding sex for your wife combined with the worry of another pregnancy.
My e-leaflet Guide To Contraception explains the many choices these days so you can both find a method you are comfortable with – remember withdrawal is not a reliable method of contraception.
My e-leaflet on Thrilling A Woman In Bed should help your wife start to enjoy sex as much as you do.
