Most women believe that sex after baby is
not going to feel the same as sex before baby, and definitely as you’re giving birth, the
head of the baby will stretch the vaginal canal, the vaginal opening, and the pelvic
floor muscles. That’s why it’s so important to do pelvic floor exercises to regain that
tone and strength. And most people find that they don’t really feel a significant difference
after that. But there are other factors that also affect how sex feels after giving birth.
It could be painful, at least for a little while. When a woman gives birth vaginally,
there could be lacerations or even micro-lacerations or she may have received an episiotomy. This
is why doctors recommend that you wait between four to six weeks for proper healing. Now,
some women think that if they a C-section, they can avoid some of this difficulty that
they have with sex after baby. But a c-section can definitely impact your sex life as well.
First, you have to recover from a major surgical operation. And abdominal incision. And next,
some people find that when they have a c-section, because it does cut through the wall of the
uterus. They don’t get that strong uterine contraction that they used to have with orgasms.
Now what is interesting is that many women report that their sex life actually gets better
after they deliver vaginally, and that is because delivering a baby through the vaginal
canal can stimulate nerve endings there and you actually learn to respond to them, which
may prime you for being multiorgasmic and having more vaginal orgasms later on in your
