Libido: After giving birth, it's advisable to wait a few weeks before having intercourse. However, there are certainly other ways to pleasure yourself or be pleasured. Becoming angry when not satisfied is another issue, and this needs to be reviewed with your physician. A psychiatrist may be able to provide some guidance or suggestions, because certain illnesses can manifest in irritability. Be well.
