  • Not bad at anxiety over it was worse...but I also waited 6 weeks. Have a glass of wine (if you can) & relax beforehand.

  • It definitely hurt the first few times for me. We waited 4 weeks with both of my kids. As long as hubby was gentle it was not unbearable more stretching/burning feeling.  Sorry TMI.  I talked to three of my good friends who had kids about the same time as I did and they all said it was about the same for them too.

  • It wasn't bad at all. After my second, third and fourth child we were active after about 3 weeks. No pain at all.

  • It definitely hurt. I was so scared I made my husband wait 3 months.

  • compared to losing your virginity it is nothing. Here you have a man who will be gentle until you are ready for more. Anticipation was the worst for me. I had to wait the entire 6 weeks though due to having stitches from twat to tail.
