How do I prevent feelings of rejection in my partner?

There may be tough times for both of you when one or the other doesn't feel like having sex. It may be related to being tired or sore or worried about the baby, or it may be a more deeply buried psychological reason that is difficult to pinpoint.

It is very important that neither of you translates a lack of interest in sex into not being loved. This is a challenging time for both of you and you need to be supportive of each other.

If your sex life has become an issue for you, talk about it. Discuss each other's needs and concerns in an honest and loving way and explore other options that will allow you to enjoy each others company. But, if the challenge is too great, turn to your doctor or caregiver for help.They have seen this type of problem in more couples than you might guess, and they won’t judge you.
