Sex after childbirth

Sex after childbirth

It is possible to resume sexual intercourse with penetration 6 weeks after a normal birth, the time the cervix closes. If there has been a tear, a episiotomy or a c-section, better wait for the complete healing of the sutures. You have to count on average 6 TO 9 weeks. In the meantime, if you feel desire, nothing prevents us from replacing your romp with voluptuous messages, caresses, and even reports without penetration as long as the genital sphere is sensitive.

To Know: the resumption of the first sexual intercourse occurs on average 6 TO 9 weeks after childbirth.

Regain your sexuality gently
Often, all young moms can no longer have desire, for multiple reasons: physical and psychological changes, intense fatigue… for dads, it can be difficult to find his companion. Desire can be there but there is the fear of hurting, the new image of their companion became a mom who can block them… let yourself be time to find the desire to two. Taking time for moments of tenderness to two is important.

Vaginal dryness of post-partum can be a brake on the resumption of sexual life because reports can be painful. Don’t forget to use Lubricant Gel to remedy this vaginal dryness.

For the first sexual intercourse, it is important to go smoothly. You can promote positions that do not lead to too deep penetration.

Reconcile with his body
The kilos of pregnancy not yet lost, the saggy belly, the mine tired by the short nights… it’s hard to find yourself seductive the first weeks after a birth. We have to accept this change, transitional, of silhouette. Nothing better for morale than to take care of yourself, make you makeup, buy new outfits! And then, listen to your spouse. If he tells you that you are beautiful and you like him, it’s true! New dads are less sensitive to body modifications that will help you.

What are the risks to regain sexuality too quickly?
Too rushing can reduce libido. If, during the first sexual report (which you didn’t want very much) after childbirth, you hurt, you may not want to start again. Better wait for the moment you feel like it, where you feel that your body is ready.

What if sexual desire has a hard time to come back?
No longer have libido or having less after a birth is quite common! This is in general temporary. Multiply the gestures of tenderness, the evidence of love (kisses, small words, caressed…), spend time with your loved ones (why not offer you a dinner in tête-à-Tête for example by keeping baby? ). Desire should be reborn. If at the end of 6-8 months, your intimate life is still zero or very reduced, it may be worth seeing a sexologist or couple therapist.

But don’t worry, if you had a sexual life before pregnancy, you’ll find it!

IMPORTANT:En C Case, it’s good to wait at least 6 TO 9 weeks, the time the scar gets better.
