Yup - it is the progesterone and lack of estrogen. If you are lucky enough to get your cycles back while nursing, then you might at least be frisky sometimes. We have not DTD in the nearly 6 months DS4 has been here. I simply have no interest at all.

DH understood that and didnt resent me for it. So we had it rather infrequently for 1.6yrs!

Also, I found that you just arent as well lubed down there...no amount of foreplay would help arousal. So, I 'helped' him often till I finished nursing. FWIW, AF appeared after I weaned -with both boys. Around 18mos each time. Maybe ovulation has a connection to feeling kinky?
Yes it does. Estrogen makes us want to DTD and makes us ovulate a mature egg. So when you are ready to 'o', you would want to DTD more than any other time.
