i've had three children and s_x after each went fine. A little "dry" after the first baby but KY helps that.

I also have had 3 children and pregnant with my 4th. S_x after birth feels the same as before (well, it did for me,) but like Melissa said, you may feel a little dry. My s_x drive has also decreased ALOT since having kids.

S_x should be the same, it was for me. In fact you may even be able to feel a little more after than before! I tore a little & had 2 st_tches. The dr. recommended to wait for 3 to 4 weeks & after the stiches dissolved. But my husband & I didn't wait until they were completely gone & everything was fine. Although we did wait until 4 weeks or so after we had the baby. Don't be scared though, but if you are uncomfortable do wait & talk to your Dr. about it. Don't worry, they've been asked before!

Some women don't have any problems with s_x after having the baby. Others it hurts like hell!. I had one of both. Both of my sons arrived via unplanned c-section. After the first my hubby and I couldn't have s_x for months I think it was 8months before it didn't hurt like a sob...course during that c-section when they widened the uterine incision they tore it down into my cervix OUCH. after my second son arrived and I got the all clear the first 3-4times hurt just due to driness and lack of activity :-) Be patient, VERY patient a lot of foreplay and a good quality lubricant.
