I Feel Sad After Sex

Group Therapy: I Feel Sad After Sex

Has anyone else experienced this before? Just FYI my boyfriend and I are in a long-term relationship and are in our late twenties.

It's not every time, but sometimes after we have sex, I feel sad. I don't even know how to describe it. I think sometimes I feel kind of used after sex and I feel sad because of this fact. It was amazing while we were doing it, but after a while when we are just cuddling in front of the TV, I don't feel like talking anymore and have these feelings of sadness. I want to blame it on the fact that it was my "off week" while on birth control pills, but I'm wondering if this is normal? I don't have any previous traumatizing issues with sex or anything like that. And we do both love each other. I do feel better after I sleep on it. Any ideas?
