sex after childbirth adult content

How long did you wait? Was it/is it still painful?

I'm wondering because it is extremely painful, just tried 2 days ago- a month after my son was born, and I'm hoping it will stop hurting so badly!

  • Each pregnancy was a little bit different for us. We waited the standard 6 weeks with our first. Without our third we only waited 3 weeks. We took things nice and slow and it wasn't 100% at first but we got into it and enjoyed it.

  • I've done it anytime from 3 to 6 weeks after and it always hurts the 1st time, I would suggest a couple glasses of wine and a good lubricant
