Kareena Kapoor Khan shatters stereotypes; says, ‘I lost my sex drive during pregnancy; Saif was supportive’
Kareena Kapoor Khan recently released her book ‘Pregnancy Bible: The Ultimate Manual for Moms-To-Be’. Co-written by Aditi Shah Bhimjyani, this book gives complete information to expecting mothers on what to expect at different stages of pregnancy and also after the delivery. While most parts of the book are written by experts, Kareena has also inserted her own experiences.
Kareena has discussed many important aspects of pregnancy in the book and probably the most important one is sex during pregnancy. Kareena who was having a live chat with her best friend and brother Karan Johar on Instagram about her book discussed a lot of stuff. While addressing the topic of sex during pregnancy, Bebo who herself lost the sex drive during her pregnancy also praised her husband Saif Ali Khan for how understanding he was.
She said, “When you are pregnant one actually experience different moods, different emotions and people doesn’t understand that. Someday I would feel super amazing and sexy, looking at my belly I would feel Oh My God I am so hot. Even Saif would also say that you look beautiful. But after 6-7 months I was so exhausted I even could not get myself out from the bed in the morning. Sometimes it was just a feeling of repulsion and you actually doesn’t want to think anything. And during this time you realise it is so important to have a supportive man beside you. And most men should not pressure on their wives to look beautiful and to have a regular sex life. It has to go with the women’s point of view like how they feel. And what she is feeling in that minute. And if your husband doesn’t understand that then how can be he the father of your child? He has to love you in every form, every aspect every way. And that’s the reason I have included this aspect because most women are scared to talk about it.”
