The text discusses sexual health and the impact of pregnancy and childbirth on couples’ intimacy. Dr. Catherine Solano, a sex therapist, addresses the hormonal changes affecting both women and men. She also co-founded Doctical, a telehealth platform supporting cancer patients in their intimate health and has authored several books including “Le grand livre de la puberté” (Robert Laffont editions). Pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period can challenge couples’ sexuality, as illustrated by the experience of Adrien and Amélie, who abstained from sex for nearly two years after their son’s birth.

While there may be psychological factors or a gap between partners, this was not the case for them. Their intimacy resumed when their son turned one, reflecting a common challenge for many couples.
