Will sex hurt after I give birth?

Because of hormonal fluctuations, one's vagina may become dry and sensitive. Some of the following tips might help you avoid discomfort or pain when having sex following birth: (1) empty one's bladder and take a warm bath first; (2) use lubricant; lubrication can aid with a dry vagina; (3) test things out; see what works and what doesn't; (4) Create time; having and caring for a baby is a demanding journey; make time so that you don't feel stressed/anxious during sexual intercourse.

If you think that you can benefit from professional support on this issue you can reach out here.
