  • Actually, I was a little looser afterwards, which was fine with me (I used to be super tight before). If you're worried about getting too loose, do your Kegel exercises.

  • I just got the 6 week check up & the doc gave me the go ahead - so i did.
    It hurt really bad where i had tore from labor and had stitches, so i am gonna try to give it a little more time to heal and try again.

  • my midwife said use lube so it hurts less. But It still hurt for a little then it went away. It will get better.

  • I WISH it felt like I was a virgin again! At my six week, my doctor told me to take another MONTH before getting back in bed, yikes! But now that time has gone by as well and we still haven't. We've tried, but OUCH! I'm starting to worry how we'll ever be able to do this! :(
