Lots of moms hear stories from their friends about the changes to their sex lives after childbirth. Some complain about it getting more difficult to make time for sex, while others claim to be having the best sex of their lives. It could take a little while before you are ready to get busy in the bedroom again, and you may be wondering, how does a woman's orgasm change after becoming a mom.
For many women, sex while pregnant is amazing. According to Fit Pregnancy, because your genitals, pelvic region, and uterus were more engorged with blood, your vaginal area is much more sensitive when you're pregnant. It is not uncommon for pregnant women to experience really intense and even multiple orgasms for the first time in their lives. Fast forward to the postpartum phase, and things may not be quite the same. Even after the doctor gives you the OK to have sex again, you may find that you have a little bit of soreness and some unexpected vaginal dryness on your first go-round. This can improve as more time passes, and since everyone is different, you may not experience discomfort at all.
Here are some ways your orgasm changes after you become a mother.
