How long after the birth of your child (if you delivered vaginally) did you experience pain during intercourse?

My daughter is now 7.5 months old and I'm still having pain. I feel like that's not normal... so I'm going to the doc on Monday. But I am wondering if anyone else has had this experience?

  • I found I was tighter and we had to work together to adjust to the new me, and so we taked things slow, lots of oral at first, and not any hard sex for a while.

  • Sex was painful for me for about a year after my first child was born. I tore and got a lot of stitches that time. I didn't tear with my other delivery and didn't have any pain with sex after that.

  • I also had pain for over a year, but it was because of the episiotomy, not any other issues I was having. I believe I had somewhere between 5 and 7 stitches. My doctor now says that it is not normal to experience pain for that long afterward...
