Sex after pregnancy isn't exactly known for being just like sex before you had a baby. In fact the things that change about your orgasm after pregnancy are enough to make you a little wary (or even a little excited) about hitting the sheets again after giving birth.
Your orgasms while pregnant most likely changed too, so it shouldn't be a total shock that there are a few things different about postpartum orgasms. According to Fit Pregnancy, orgasms while pregnant can often feel more intense because of the increased blood flow and you may experience some physical changes, like a hard belly as your uterus contracts with the orgasm. Sounds pretty great, right? But it's not like orgasms while pregnant are always the easiest thing to achieve. You're getting bigger, it's harder to fold yourself into your favorite sex positions, and, let's be honest here, you're tired AF.
Those feelings of exhaustion only ramp up when you have your baby and it can affect your sex life a lot. But don't get discouraged. When you remember to take your time and remind yourself that things are going to be different, you can help ensure a great experience in the bedroom for both you and your partner. Just be on the lookout for the three things that change about your orgasm after pregnancy.
