A woman's body undergoes significant changes in the weeks and months following the baby's birth. In the post-pregnancy period, a woman's body takes the time to heal from childbirth, rebuild the previous strength and regain the pre-pregnancy toned shape. Here are 5 common sex problems that you may face after pregnancy:
1. Exhaustion: Your body is mentally, physically and emotionally exhausted and not ready for intimacy post pregnancy. Often the quality of sex may not be what you hope for and this can lead to discouragement and apprehension next time. Exhaustion is a common post pregnancy problem and it will eventually ease with time, so being patient can help in the meantime. To not fall out of the habit of intimacy is important for you and your partner to stay connected physically. Self-care exercise can help ease the exhaustion.
2. Physical changes: A woman's body undergoes a lot of physical changes after giving birth to a baby. A body should be given enough time to recover after delivery, whether it is vaginal or C-section. The hormones keep changing dramatically, the uterus shrinks and the C-section wounds continue healing as well. These changes might affect your libido significantly.
3. Breastfeeding burnout: Women experience breastfeeding burnout during this phase as a result of constant nursing, sucking, biting, and tugging on breasts by a baby. The breasts may be sore, become heavy and prone to let downs (during orgasm, which stimulates some of the same hormones as breastfeeding). This can be a major turn-off while having sex with your partner as the breasts are full and achy.
4. Body image issues: The uterus takes two months to return to its pre-pregnancy size and meanwhile you can still look pregnant. Gaining weight is also natural during this period. While some women lose weight quickly for others it takes a longer period to lose pregnancy weight. Also, stretch marks, scars, and bigger feet make you feel body conscious which has a negative impact on your sex life.
