your Sex Life
Tips for easing
back into love-making
Consult your doctor about the best time
to start making love again. If he says six weeks, it doesn't mean that
you get to it the minute the time is up. Both partners should be mentally,
emotionally and physically ready.
Your sex life should mean more than
just having intercourse. There are other ways of showing affection like
cuddling, holding hands, massages or even mutual masturbation.
Don't expect too much. Many women don't
experience orgasms for weeks or even months. But the pleasure comes back
Women who have dry vaginas should use
a lubricant until their bodies begin to secrete their own lubricants. Doctors
can also prescribe a topical estrogen cream to alleviate pain and tenderness.
Sexual positions where the partners
lie side by side or where the woman is on top may be easier on the woman
as she has more control over the depth of penetration and there is less
pressure on a sore perineum.
You may not be able to have sex whenever
you fancy, so make time according to your baby's nap schedule.
It's important to communicate your fears,
worries and thoughts about any sexual difficulties. Women should not hesitate
to tell their husbands if they're tired or what hurts and what feels good.
Worrying about your sex life or lack
of it will only compound the problem. Just relax and everything else will
fall into place.
