Sexual activity: Great sex comes with experience and a deep and intense relationship with a partner.
Good sexual relations can come with safe experimentation and communication with a partner ready to connect with you.
Do not be afraid to talk with your partner about what works best; what is a fantasy; or what would bring your great pleasure.

Openly and honestly: Sex is the ultimate in intimacy for both partners. What one does affects the other. Each must know the other emotionally, physically, mentally, and intimately. Tell the partner you have issues with desire and see if there are things that can be better to re-interest you in sex. There may be medical issues. Get a good check up and needed testing. Counselling may be needed. Good luck!

To make babies!: "why" questions are hard to answer in the natural sciences, as they imply there's a purpose or intent. Biology usually relies on evolution principles to answer "why" questions. In this case, the good feelings from sex motivate the behavior, resulting in propagation of the species. If you seek a neurological explanation (how not why), perhaps a neurologist can answer.

Foreplay: Possibly you need more foreplay before intercourse, so that your natural lubrication has a chance to respond. More importantly, to enjoy with your partner. Men are often physiologically "ready" for intercourse sooner than women, but that doesn't mean the couple has to go there right away. There can be time for other types of pleasuring first.

A 41-year-old female asked:
I'm over 5 wks after lap hyst. Dr said healing great at 4 wk apt.Going on trip tom. & 6 wk falls on trip. Is sex safe at that point? I feel great!

Yes: If your GYN said healing good and no complications - 6 weeks after surgery should be no problem resume sexual activity. It almost like " 6 weeks postpartum - time after baby " = healing time. If you feel good, no pain, no bleeding. You may consider to use vaginal lubricant if any dryness. Enjoy vacation with your loved one. If any doubt see your GYN .
