hi, has anyone experienced any pain when having sex from behind after having a child?? My son is 16 months but I took ages to heal. So I have just managed for the 1st time to do it from behind. When my partner thrust in it felt like he was pressing into my cervix, it hurt. Also he said that he felt like he was hitting something. Is this normal??thanks

  • Same here hunny, its normal. I have polycistic overies and that causes some of my discomfort. If you seem really bothered by it and if you are still unsure, see your Gyno, thats what I did. Ya know...just to make sure. :)

  • yes it does hurt you never get used to it i use cooking oil it helps ease it in, and the faster it goes in the shorter it hurts.

  • thanks so much for this guys!! its great to actually relate to other people. Its such a weird feeling of discomfort. But I guess everything does't go back to normal after having a baby.
