Once you have kids, your life will instantly change. Your life will head in a new direction and you find yourself caring for someone else more than you ever thought. Many of your old habits and hobbies may get lost in the transition into your new direction. With all of the changes that are about to happen, your sex life does not have to be one of them. Try these ways to hold on to what you have.


Let each other know how you are feeling and what you are going through. When you are having a hormonal imbalance, suffering from exhaustion, or wishing to have your previous body back, you aren’t going to be feeling like your old self. Talk with your spouse and allow for open communication. You will be able to understand one another so much better. You may both end up having the same thought on an idea or totally something different. Psychology Today says you should ask questions and never assume to you know the answer. Compassion and appreciation towards each other will help get your intimacy back on track.

All in all, kids should be the start to a brand new life for you. With that, you should certainly be allowed to keep some of your old habits and activities. Talk with your spouse rather than avoid the situation. Be compassionate towards each other and you will be well on your way to enjoying your special time together.
