Did it hurt to be intimate with your husband after a baby?

I wonder if i was sewed up too tight. I never thought it could be so painful. it's more painful than the first time we ever did.

  • it all depends. How soon after. you on top so you have control. how bad you ripped. things like that.

  • Definitely hurt. I had an emergency cesarean and I thought for sure they messed something up cuz it hurt like crazy. We had sex for the first time 5 weeks after delivery. They say to wait 6 buuut my husband was extremely insistent LOL. But i did notice that only in certain positions did it hurt, when I was on top i could control how deep and at what angle so that helped tremendously....LOL i don't think they could have sewed you up too tight but guess you never know =) keep trying it will soon go away and you will find a way that works for you. Sex for me has never been the same after my c-section though...not sure why but it doesn't generally hurt.

  • There could be a dozen reasons you are experiencing pain, in your place I would get checked over by your OB.
