How to Prevent Post Delivery Sex Difficulties

Many women experience difficulty while having sex post delivery. Let us have a look at some tips for preventing post delivery sex difficulties.

There can be various stages and types of
post delivery sex difficulties, ranging from a purely physiological to psychological. Some of them are inevitable, while some can be effectively prevented. The most common amongst all is the female sexual dysfunction or FSD, which is considered to be a serious morbidity. Apart from the above two, there is also the social adverse impact that adds to the difficulties, albeit in certain family or cultural environment.

Given below are some ways in which most sex difficulties during this stage can be averted:

Diagnose Early
– This is extremely important in order to prevent complications in later sex and reproductive life. It has been observed in many cases that women feel embarrassed or apprehensive in coming out with their problems and difficulties during this stage. There are several reasons for this:

  • They feel ashamed to talk about sexual difficulties just after becoming a mother. They fear that the change in priorities should not come in the way of sexual satisfaction.
  • There is a fear that any acceptance of sexual difficulty might not be interpreted well by their partners. There is a fear and assumption that their desirability might be hampered.
  • In some cases depending on environment, discussing or talking about postnatal sex difficulties is also regarded as a taboo. As the woman is expected to have no desires apart from fulfilling her new role as a ‘good’ mother.

So, it is either preoccupation or embarrassment that sexual matters post delivery gets overlooked or ignored. In order to prevent the initial difficulties to escalate, it is thereby essential that they are discussed with your doctor or other healthcare providers. The new mother along with her partner needs to understand that pregnancy and childbirth has brought about variable changes in her body. Therefore, sexual functions, desires and even the feel of her organs might not be the same. So, raise the issues during the postnatal care sessions. Lack of knowledge or delay in treatment should not come in the way of effective prevention of these difficulties.

Doctors Should Avoid Episiotomy
– In the majority of the cases where post delivery sex difficulties have been reported, it has been found that the woman had undergone episiotomy during childbirth. This is a surgical procedure that induces tear and lacerations in the vaginal tissues in order to aid the process of vaginal birth. Very often this also affects the anal tissues, thereby further enhancing the trauma. This is then followed by sutures. Sexual intercourse naturally becomes difficult as these take time to heal and there is also a chance of further infections.

Thereby doctors should only perform episiotomy only under strong indications and not just for speeding up the process.

Coital Positions and Lubrications
– When you want to prevent post delivery sex difficulties, you need to take care of some simple aspects. Not only your partner needs to go slow, that is, give some time for you to get physically and mentally prepared for the act, but also take care that you are in the most comfortable position. It has been noted that side positions and the use of lubricants to aid you overcome the vaginal dryness helps a lot in preventing the difficulties in escalating.

Lead a Healthy Life –
This entails that you must take care of your diet, avoid alcohol and smoking and engage in the regular workout. Try to stay away from stress and enjoy your life and motherhood. All these simple things contribute in a major way in dealing and preventing sex difficulties from escalating.

The initial sexual disorder is usually quite readily treated with medical intervention and some emotional support from the partner. But if there is a consequent cycle of fear, which is found to exist in most cases of FSD, the treatment becomes a tad difficult. Therefore, the best way to avoid an impact of the post delivery sex difficulties in later life is to effectively prevent them through constant monitoring and care.
