Yes: Generally, women heal up fine after a D & C, which means they are fertile some time after the D & C if they were fertile before the D & C. Of course, it might take a cycle or two or three, but that's not predictable. If not wanting to get pregnant again, one should use birth control properly.

Yes: The horomones that regulate breast milk production can result in dry and atrophic vaginal tissue. This can markedly decrease the sex drive. Exhaustion from around the clock feedings also can have a dramatic impact on sex drive.

No: Generally, no. Pregnancy does cause sleep related problems, most notably due to discomfort and/or anxiety, and this can increase problems with depression. After delivery, sleep deprivation can add to this. Good mental health includes personal time, exercise and nutrition and deficiencies in any one do increase your risk.

If I have had one seizure in the past is it safe to undergo a light hypnosis for anxiety I do take Dilantin which is a untheroputic level?

Get off it: Dilantin should be relegated to history. It is an old drug of high toxicity and major problems with use. Talk to your doctor about getting off or at least changing to a newer and safer seizure medication.
