Congratulations! You've just given birth to a perfect bundle of joy. Your body is different, your schedule is different, you're trying to function on minimal sleep, and you're learning how to take care of another human? Wait, it gets better. Remember sex? That thing you used to like doing so much and that, in fact, got you said baby? Well, there are some sucky things about sex after childbirth that may make you hesitant to jump back in bed (no matter how horny you may be.)
If you thought you had mastered the deed before you had your baby, think again. Once you and your vagina have endured childbirth, it's no longer "business as usual" when it comes t banging boots. And it won't be for a while. You're just getting used to you postpartum body, and throwing sex into the mix may feel like the very last thing you want to do at times. Things can feel pretty uncomfortable, even painful, for a few months after giving birth to your new bundle of joy and whether you're raring to go or not feeling it at all, there are a few things you should know before you take a proverbial roll in the hay most pregnancy.
