  • I had c-sections, so I don't know personally, but my sister said it's like being a virgin again.

  • Def use lots of lube. If it's just a little tender, go with it and see if it feels better as you go. If it actually hurts, stop and give yourself a few more days to heal before trying again. Your vagina is a muscle. If you keep it toned, it will resume it's previous shape and size in no time. Keep up those kegels!!

  • If you're breastfeeding it will prob be a little dry, and if you tore it might hurt a little. My experience was that we started having sex again 4 weeks postpartum. Neither of us could wait anymore! It felt just like pre-pregnancy sex, and no it wasn't like throwing a hotdog down a hallway lol. Go slow to start though. And like the other girls said, do the Kegels, especially during sex, it makes it feel even tighter! Have fun!

  • it was like our first time again! my DF swears I'm tighter, and I feel like that too. alot of women are scared of being "loose" or w/e, TOTALLY NOT THE CASE!!! Sex was AMAZING for us && still is! Just take it easy!

  • For us, it was like I was a virgin again ... definitely the opposite of the hot dog and bat cave, LOL :)

    Since it was like I was a virgin again, it hurt ... like a lot ... it took a few times of him trying to "enter" for him to actually get in, KWIM?
