Do a quick Google search for “when can I have sx after baby” and you’ll see that women everywhere are wondering about how pregnancy and childbirth will affect their sx lives. And no wonder – sx is important for your mental, emotional and physical well-being! Yes, your body has changed, and yes sx might be a bit different for awhile, but rest assured that you will enjoy sx again – perhaps even more than you did before you gave birth. However, there are some things you need to be aware of. So let’s talk about sx, post-baby.

When can I get back in the sack?
Your body is still recovering from 9 months of changes and a delivery, so even if you feel ready right away it will need some time to heal. Most doctors will recommend waiting about four to six weeks after childbirth before you start having s*x again, depending on whether you had a vaginal delivery or a c-section, and whether there were any complications like tearing or an episiotomy. So it’s best to wait until after your six-week postpartum visit with your doctor before getting back to it.

Even when your doctor gives you the green light, it’s important to pay attention to your own intuition. Some women feel ready weeks before their postpartum visit, others need more time. So don’t put pressure on yourself – it will happen when you’re ready. The important thing is to be upfront with your partner about how you’re feeling about s*x. And remember your partner may also not be ready to have s*x, so encourage your partner to share their feelings as well.

What about pain?
While you’re healing, you’ll probably be a bit sore so s*x might hurt a little at first. However, some women don’t experience pain at all – everyone is different. So don’t force intimacy – you need to give yourself time to heal and get back into the mood. When you start having s*x again, go slow and dedicate lots of time to foreplay – which is half the fun anyway!

Another easy way to make things more comfortable is to invest in a good feminine moisturizer. Vaginal dryness is common after delivery, thanks to lower estrogen levels – especially if you’re breastfeeding. This is totally normal and nothing to be embarrassed about, but it can make s*x a little uncomfortable. So don’t be shy about bringing it out (whether with your partner or solo).

Speaking of which, what about breastfeeding?
Breastfeeding also affects s*x post-baby, from hormones that reduce s*x drive, to experiencing leaks or sprays of chest milk (called letdown) during climax. You may also find that after nursing a baby all day, your br**sts just want to be left alone! But don’t worry – these are all normal and temporary. If letdown during s*x bothers you, you can nurse or pump before s*x, or wear a bra. Make sure you also tell your partner how much touching your br**sts can handle – think of it as a chance to explore your other erogenous zones.

Will s*x feel different?
Even if you don’t feel pain, for some new moms s*x just feels a little different – and not necessarily in a bad way! Your body had to change to accommodate that new bundle of joy in your life. That can mean changes in how s*x feels, and that might take a little getting used to. What’s most important is to make sure your vaginal muscles (aka the pelvic floor muscles) are healthy and strong. Kegel exercises can help tremendously with tightening your v**ina, strengthening the pelvic floor muscles (crucial for supporting your pelvic organs and reducing little bladder leaks post-pregnancy), and maybe even improving your orgasms.

Rather than thinking of Kegels as another thing you’re supposed to do during the day (as if you don’t have enough on your plate!), think of them as a chance to do something that’s just for you. A smart Kegel exerciser makes it easy: it measures your pelvic floor strength, chooses the perfect workout for your level and guides you through a routine. You can get the most out of every Kegel, without having to worry about a thing.

Other ways to be intimate.
It makes sense that you might not feel that frisky, but keep in mind that even if you’re not having penetrative s*x, there are still lots of ways to be intimate with each other. Take a few moments (or more!) each day, just the two of you, to be affectionate with each other, outside of the bedroom. Simple things can make a big difference in feeling a closer bond with your partner (and as an added bonus can be great foreplay). Plus, researchers in The Journal of s*xual Medicine found that the biggest drivers of s*xual desire in new mothers are psychological factors like closeness. So get cuddling – who knows where it will lead!

It may seem overwhelming to handle everything that comes with the arrival of your baby, especially when it comes to keeping romance alive, but don’t get discouraged. s*x shouldn’t be a source of stress. Keeping your relationship strong and the fire alight can help you both recharge, and you may even find that improving intimacy brings you closer together in the bedroom. A stronger relationship and better s*x life? Win-win!
