After the childbirth: how your sex life may change

Having a child changes a lot of things and some of these things you may not have expected. However, they say that to be forewarned is to be forearmed. 

Therefore, here’s a little heads-up on how your sex life may change after childbirth. Don’t worry, you may not experience some of these changes and even if you do, they may not last for long.

1. Altered body image

This is not about inferiority complex or low self-esteem. Your body went through something life-changing and the evidence is written all over it. It is okay to feel differently about your body and that altered body image may make you shy away from sex. However, you should remember that this difference to your body is completely natural. Don’t let it get you down and you could always work with a fitness instructor to get your pre-pregnancy body back.

2. Pain during sex

If you experienced a tear, you should hold off on sex as it could be painful (obviously). Also, your oestrogen levels may have taken a dip and so there might be too little lubrication to make sex enjoyable.

3. Squirting but from the wrong hole

You have had your child but your hormones may still be haywire. This is why you may leak some breast milk while you orgasm. This can largely be attributed to the fact the same hormones responsible for orgasms are released during breastfeeding. Interesting, right?

4. Low sex drive

It is very common that your sex drive after having a baby drops significantly. Don’t be under pressure to perform just yet and hopefully, your husband will understand that your body has been through a lot and you need time to recover.

Are there any other post-childbirth sexual experiences you have had?
