Ever since i had my son back in september sex has been somewhat painful and unpredictable. sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. it has gotten a little better but not fully. is this normal and if so will it work itself out or does this need medical help?

  • is your period regular? if not I would ask your is sometimes painful for me too but if I am on top it isn't. I found out my problem is that I had a problem in my uterus but it's ok now. I'd ask you gyno or doctor.

  • As a result of the birth of my first daughter, I had pain until after my second daughter was born.
    I would talk to a doctor, just because it IS common, but in cases like mine, it doesn't work itself out. It's worth it to try to have something done to end the pain. I know it caused all sorts of stress in our relationship and just for me personally to not feel "normal" anymore.

  • After my first I had a difficult time having sex because it hurt so bad. I had a big episiotomy...yeeowch!
    It hurt to have sex for the entire first year afterward. But slowly the pain subsided and now things couldn't be better.
    You could and should call your dr if you are concerned. Don't be embarrassed about it either...they have heard it all and won't blink an eye at your questions.

  • I would call your doctor. I am having the same problems but I had my son in January. I have actual issues and may need surgery. Sometimes it is nothing, sometimes it is due to nursing, sometimes it is something major.
