  • of course every woman is different, but the first time i had post c-section lovin', it was rather uncomfortable because it had been so long. also, if you're breastfeeding, your body isn't really working as hard to make your natural lubrication like it was before, so that could come into play for discomfort. either way, just take it easy and if something doesn't feel right or hurt, tell him to stop immediately and let your doctor know!

  • Couple things may factor. Obviously you have been a while without sex. Your hormones are out of whack so you may not be as wet as normal, and sometimes, despite having an intact vagina from not having a vaginal delivery, the uterine scar pulls the cervix upward a little bit. It will all come back to normal, but just remember you did have major reproductive surgery.

  • Just take it nice and slow and make sure you have plenty of lube!

    Good luck momma!

  • It really depends...I felt a little tender after both my 6-week checkups (both c-sections), but it was nothing too bad. My incision was basically fine, and "down there" just felt a little raw and tender from not being used in a while! LOL. But it really was not bad either time.
