Background: Problems with sexuality are experienced in the first 6 months at the most, and often in the first 12 months after birth. Although there are studies reporting negative effects of breastfeeding on sexuality, the evidence is limited. Objective: This study was conducted with the aim of exploring the breastfeeding sexual lives of first-time mothers. Materials and Methods: The research was carried out in Turkey between October 2020 and December 2021. The study was conducted with 41 women who met the inclusion criteria. Participants were selected by the “snowball” sampling procedure among nonprobability sampling methods. A qualitative approach was used to gather data through semistructured interviews. Content analysis was used for data analysis as described by Graneheim and Lundman. Data analysis was performed using NVivo software (Version 11). Results: According to the results of the content analysis, three themes were created: factors affecting sexuality in the breastfeeding process, sexual interaction with the spouse during the breastfeeding process, and understood expectations. The theme, titled factors affecting sexuality in the breastfeeding process, consists of five categories: physical, psychological, sociocultural, infant-related, and health professionals-related factors. The theme of “understood expectations” consists of desires for improving sexual satisfaction and satisfaction during lactation, and sexual communication categories. The contact of sexual interaction with spouse during breastfeeding consists of positive interaction and negative interaction categories. Conclusions: It has been concluded that the sexual intercourse of women is adversely affected during the breastfeeding period and that women have expectations to increase their sexual satisfaction. Sexual problems during the breastfeeding process cause problems in the spousal relationship.
