  • Post PARTUM. Ask your Doctor. It might be an infection.

  • What exactly is painful?

    You could try using lube or different positions.

  • Take your time with foreplay and use lube. Have him use one or two fingers for a bit. That way your vagina will be able to handle regular penitration in no time.

  • Call your doctor. It should not be painful

  • I don't think I was doing it 2 weeks post partum...I think you have to go slow. Good luck.

  • It would depend on what type of delivery you had, whether you're nursing or not as to why it might hurt. I had an episiotomy with one and sex hurt for months after, plus I was nursing and that sometimes causes drop in estrogen which made it really dry and sex was painful but once I used the estrogen it did help. We learned to use lubes, go easy and positions etc that caused the least amount of pain possible. I ripped with last baby and healing was much easier and not much if any pain with sex.
