Have you ever wondered what it feels like to have s*xual intercourse with your partner after child delivery? Couples and enthusiasts will find this article very helpful.
For most women, s ex is the last thing in their minds after they’ve just have a baby.
The cares of a newborn, the agony of delivery, bleeding, lactation and other issues that go with child delivery are sometimes so unsettling that new mothers don’t want to add s ex to the list.
However, for many women, by the sixth week after delivery, they are prepared to have s*x, especially if their men are getting impatient with the sudden celibacy.
But then, what does s ex look like after child delivery?
S ex can hurt
Traumatic birth, episiotomy, stitches, surgery and a pelvic floor weakened by nine months of pregnancy can all make s*x painful for months or even years after delivery. Postnatal hormones can also cause a bit of dryness in the vaginal canal. You may need to see the doctor.
Fear of pregnancy
Gynaecologists say contrary to the erroneous counselling that exclusive breastfeeding prevents pregnancy, you can get pregnant immediately after delivery if you are ovulating and you have s ex.
S ex drive may disappear altogether
Even for some women who may desire to have s ex not long after delivery, they may discover to their horror that their libido is low, courtesy of the hormone changes that took place during the pregnancy period. If this happens, relax and gradually work at it.
Breasts can leak milk when aroused
If you’re breastfeeding, the same hormone that helps with milk flow can be released when you’re aroused. This may lead to leaking during s ex. You and your spouse must get used to it! Your man’s s ex drive can slow down
Contrary to the belief that men are always raving to go, sometimes the birth of their baby can make a man experience lower testosterone, leading to a drop in libido. He needs time to get his bearing.
Having s ex with baby in the room
While the baby has absolutely no idea of what’s going on, it sometimes feels weird, especially if that’s your first child. You’re used to being alone in the room, but you now have a third party! Sometimes in the middle of the game, you baby wants to suck! The two of you must learn to figure things out!
The bottom line: Read books and magazines on pregnancy, child delivery and post-natal s ex. All these should give you a fair idea of what to expect and how to navigate it.
