For those of you that have had a natural birth before, can you please tell me if s_x wasn't as good afterwards? Does everything shrink back to normal eventually? I'm worried about losing tightness.

Ive been quite worried about the same thing and asking around. Ive heard it does return to normal within a few months, but Id be interested on what everyone says about this.

Anyone else?

kegals! after two kids things are still pretty much the same as far as s_x goes. i also felt a little tighter at the very start but things got back to normal after a month or so.

For me s_x was much better afterwards and for my husband as well.

It still feels good but its just not quite the same but my baby is only 5 months so maybe i got some tightning to go, lol

At first it was a little different but as time goes by I think everything shrinks back to normal.

Sweetie you wont have to worry about a thing i had natural birth and after my 6 weeks when i finally dicided to get some it was like being a virgin again......Does that help you

It's not the same right away, but thanks to tight st_tches and kegal exercises, everything is okay! Your body will be different, not worse, but different.

i just had my baby girl about a month ago and im not comfortable enough to have s_x yet even though i want it really bad. my boyfriend supports me but i still feel like i should be giving him more. if you have any advise for me e-mail me at [email protected]

can you really ask the doc. to put a few extra st_tches down there. My boyfriend jokes about it, but I didn't know they would really do it....

I am a mother of two. Both weighing 8 lb. 15 oz. My youngest is now 10 months old. With my last child i did not have to have an episiotomy. I did have one with my first child and i did feel like a virgin again. I have done kegals and nothing seems to work this time. I do not feel like things have returned back to normal. I keep thinking that had i had an episiotomy, maybe things would be better.
