Facebook Reader Question: It’s been 2 months since I gave birth, how long do i have to wait so sex won’t hurt?
Momma Elle says: Sexy Reader! I am so sorry that sex still hurts! OUCH!
I bet that it isn’t that the sex hurts, it is the hormones that are present in your body right now!
You know, those lovely wonderful hormones that make you breast milk come in nice and healthy and the hormones that make your uterus tighten and shrink back to pre-pregnancy size….well one more thing that those hormones do, is they can cause vaginal dryness. The vaginal moisture when you are aroused just is not as intense as before!
All you need is some good lubricant, remember to use a water based lubricant, not petroleum based.
Also after a baby, you can get to feeling like everyone wants a piece of you…remember to take some breaks and keep a little piece of yourself available for your partner….it was your partner that you were excited to have a baby with…..don’t let having that baby mess up what you two have together…
Now I am not saying let the poor baby starve or cry it out! What I am saying is make sure that when the little one is all tucked in the cradle next to you that you grab your lube and get it on with the one that you love!!!
Sexy Readers, let me know your stories about sex after baby.....comment anonymously if you want....
