Effect Of Intimate Relationship On Milk Production?

, does having sex affect breastfeeding, and is it bad for children?

1 Answer:

Hello Margareth, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Having sex while breastfeeding will not affect the production of breast milk or make the milk quality worse, so it will not have any adverse effects on your child.


However, there are some things you should know about breastfeeding and its relationship to sexual intercourse. The hormone prolactin, which is released when a woman is breastfeeding, will suppress the production of several other hormones, including estrogen. Suppression of the hormone estrogen can have several effects on women, including:

decreased libido
vaginal dryness
menstrual cycle disorders

Because of this effect of the hormone prolactin, often women who are breastfeeding their babies exclusively feel uncomfortable during sexual intercourse. Apart from the lack of desire for sexual intercourse (low libido), vaginal dryness also causes discomfort during sexual intercourse.


However, if you do not feel both and feel comfortable in having sex, you can still do it with your partner without worrying about side effects on milk production.

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