  • I was tighter and I never had an episiotomy or stitches, I did my kegel exercises all during pregnancy and after and apparently it helps lol

  • I'm tighter, but I think it's because I do Kegels almost unconsciously now. I had such issues (and still do from time to time) with controlling my bladder after having my son, so I was constantly doing them to help with that... I never thought about the possibility of being "too tight". I feel re-virginized! lol

  • i think i am tighter because of the stitches lol but i heard if you do it too soon (before 6 weeks) then you're not giving it enough time to go back down to its normal size, meaning you're keeping it stretched. I waited until 10 weeks so I wouldn't personally know.

  • I was. I think my OB put an extra stitch in.

  • Definately tighter, when my DH and I had sex for the first time after having our little girl, it felt like THE first time all over again.
