last night we attemped to have sex for the first time since our son was born (6 weeks ago, via c-section) and it hurt so bad we had to stop! Is this normal for the first time? Anyone else have this problem?

  • oh yes it will hurt! keep in mind you JUST had a baby and went through surgery and your body takes a while to get back down to size since it was stretched and all. it hurt me when SO and I had sex about I think 2 months PP. it didnt feel good at all. but we took it very very slow and eventually it felt good again! but if it hurts, dont try and continue! follow your body's cues!

  • I don't think so, but don't remember it's been a year and half since c-section. Talk to doctor I guess.

  • It hurt me the first time, and I had a c-section too... it's a lot of things. Hormones make it harder to get aroused -- that's the biggest one. You're probably also stressed and stuff. You might need more time, or you might just need more lube! Haha, keep trying if you're willing, and if you're not ready, then Hubby will just have to wait. [:

  • Yes, that is normal. It took a while for DH to "enter" fully when we first were having sex again after baby was born. Invest in lube! It works great!

  • Call me a rebel, but 8 days after my c section I had sex. Very slow and carefully. It didnt hurt at all. For some reason, my hormones were raging out of contol.

  • omg!! did it hurt. and its is alot of things. one thing that i think it is is mothers nature playing a cruel trick. u arweeven more sore when u breast feed. its the hormones. but it seems as if its a cruel trick and a kind of self imposed birth control we didnt ask for lol. but yes take it slow and listen to your body. its touch when u have a baby by c section. u need time to recover .
