Giving birth is an incredible feat that should remind a woman of her body's capabilities. Unfortunately, this often goes unrecognized because a mom-to-be may be busy worrying about the toll it takes on her vagina. This worry is perpetuated by the hurtful things said about what happens to a woman's body after birth. You must not believe these things, as they are myths about vaginal tightness after baby you should ignore.
The untruths can take away from that postpartum bliss you can be feeling as you bond with your new baby and your partner. You have to remember that you possess a superpower to create life inside your womb. That superpower extends to your very resilient vagina.
"Your body is made for pregnancy, but it's also made to recover after it," OB-GYN Dr. Idries Abdur-Rahman said in an interview with Self magazine. Your vagina may feel different in the early days postpartum as you heal, but it won't hinder your ability to enjoy sex. There may be some muscle fatigue and hormonal fluctuations that could temporarily change how you feel down there. Those are not long-term issues. In fact, it's in the postpartum period that can lead to a deeper intimacy with your partner, allowing you to have more enjoyable sex.
To be more confident in your body, you must feel empowered and one way to start is by debunking the following myths.
