So, you have had a baby and you are over the moon because of it. And you have already started planning your days ahead of what you will do and how you will do it. And even though your little one is not exactly letting you follow your routine but you are fairly certain that they will eventually start following it. Anyway, while you are extremely busy with your little one, it is important that you give time to your husband as well. In particular being intimate with him. But there will be some awkwardness and difference in the sex from then and now. And to prepare you for that, we have made a list of some truths you should know about having sex after a baby.
1. It might not feel that good at first
Even if your nether regions weren't harmed in the delivery of your baby, postpartum hormones can cause trouble down there. And that is why your vagina might feel irritated or you might have a different feeling altogether. But don’t worry, this feeling will soon go off and you will feel better. And don’t forget to enjoy the sex mommies, you deserve the enjoyment after so many months.
2. You will definitely want it again
Just like you will sleep again and you will go out with friends again and even be up for giving birth again, you will want to have sex again. It is a human tendency and a big desire. So, it is obvious that you will want to have sex again and again. Be honest and open with each other, and remember that sometimes you may not be in the mood going in, but you will be really glad you did it afterwards.
3. Use the afternoons
Running around your little one all day, taking care of them throughout and then catching up on all that sleep is obviously going to have its own effect which will result in you being too tired by night to have intercourse. And so, find different timings which will work for you like afternoons and get your libido satisfied.
4. Make quickies your new favourite thing
Get going anywhere and everywhere in the house. Not only will it give you a change of scenery but it will also keep the spice in the marriage. Plus, you don’t always have to do all those preparations in order to get a mood on. Just go for it, complete it and then move on to taking care of your little one because they will require most of your attention.
5. You might not be into it and there is a reason for that
Lack of sleep, a changing dynamic between you and your partner, and perhaps somebody image issues as you realize that belly ain't gonna flatten itself: not exactly the combo to put you in the mood. If you're breastfeeding, even mother nature is working against you. The oxytocin released during breastfeeding releases feel-good hormones but at the same time, it suppresses your libido. But give it some time and do not lose hope. Try different things and you will definitely start enjoying yourself soon enough.
