Sex with husband adult content

It has been 7 months since my husband and I have had sex due to medical reasons during my pregnancy. I couldn't even have an orgasm so it has been a little frustrating but now I got the ok from the doctor to have sex and it's been 2 months since my c-section and I don't want to have sex. I mean physically I really want to have sex but I feel so gross since the baby was born. I had to have a classic incision because of complications during the c-section so the scar isn't hidden like my first c-section was (bikini cut). I keep telling my husband the reason I don't want to have sex is because the birth control shot hasn't gone into affect yet and the fact that when we do have sex the doctor told me that it will hurt since I have a grapefruit size blood clot in my uterus and I'm still bleeding and the bleeding won't stop for a few more months. I know this might be TMI but I felt that the entire story needs to be told so you understand where I am coming from. I really want to have sex with him but the only way will be if the lights are off and it is pitch black. I should mention that I have started to exercise and watch what I eat so I can lose the weight but how much longer can I push my husband away before he feels like I don't want him which I do? I really don't know what to do has anyone else felt like this after they had their baby?

  • You tell him everything you just said on here. He will be relieved to know you are still sexually interested in him...and you can be reassured he still sexually wants you even though you have all these new obstacles. If he's like my husband, he will be more respectful to your pain and you can work together to achieve your ultimate goal again.

  • if it were me I would just talk with my DH and let him know how I am feeling. I would be honest with him. I know it might be hard to talk to him about all these things although it is probably the best thing you can do.

    Good Luck!

  • It's VERY common to lose your libido after childbirth, whether the birth is c-sec or vag, and regardless of how quickly you get into shape again. So be gentle with yourself. Childbirth is a huge trauma, even when it is one of the best experiences of your life. So take your time. Talk to your husband. Yes, try to get back to looking good, but do it for yourself as much as for him. And love your body. It's just acheived a miracle. *hugs*

  • I agree with others - be honest with him. And if you need to have the lights off and it be pitch black, my guess is your DH would find that better than nothing at all!!
