Hi Rizka, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Pregnancy causes hormonal changes in women. These hormonal changes are important for maintaining and supporting a healthy pregnancy. However, these hormonal changes also often cause some uncomfortable symptoms in women. A drier vagina and decreased sexual desire (libido) are also symptoms that can occur from these hormonal changes. In the first trimester of pregnancy, nausea and vomiting also worsen the decrease in libido. And a decrease in libido itself can cause vaginal dryness. In general, in the early second and third trimester, libido can return to increase, and can decline again in the final third trimester nearing the time of delivery. However, there are also women who experience a decrease in libido throughout their pregnancy and there are also those who do not experience a decrease in libido at all.


For now, you can try to discuss your condition with your partner. Ask your partner to understand your condition. If you really want to have sexual intercourse, try to do foreplay longer or use a special lubricant so that the vagina is more slippery and you don't get sick during penetration.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
