Depending on how the birth has been, sex after pregnancy
can be perceived as both positive and negative. Some may
feel increased sex drive, while others may experience
problems with dry mucous membranes and decreased sex
Six after the birth
After childbirth, natural bursts in the vagina or
middle yard may need to heal before it is possible to
have sex. If the birth has also meant that you have
burst, been cut or operated, the body needs time to heal
the wound formation. Even the reduced amount of estrogen
in the body can cause drier mucous membranes for a
period of time.
During breastfeeding, the body's production of
estrogen decreases, which can be likened to a temporary
preterm climacteric. Prolactin, the hormone that
controls milk production, also affects the ovaries and
strengthens the condition. Therefore, the mucous
membranes can become drier and brittle during the

From a physiological point of view, it is possible to
have six four to six weeks after a problem-free
But also the psychological part and the change it
means to become a parent and get a new focus in life,
are included. Therefore, it is individual with how long
you wait to have sex. For many, it feels good to talk
about what you feel so that you can sort out any
problems and misunderstandings.
Some may need to start over and find new ways to have
sex. If there is a psychological lock, the solution may
be to slowly find back to positive feelings of
closeness. For more information about pregnancy and maternity fashion, please see BESTAAH.COM maternity cardigans. Then it can be good to start slowly with

not perceived as stressful.
The woman can feel very changed in the body and be
unsure of herself in the role of mistress. Her body is
used as a mother and is constantly needed for the little
child's needs. She makes it difficult to switch between
roles. Remember that she needs lots of confirmation,
that you show that you are proud of her who carried and
gave birth to your baby, and that you love her body with
her "pregnancy tattoos".
Parents' concerns about the little child's needs and
health as well as organ-related or reduced sleep have a
significant impact on not having the ability to have sex
as before. Just don't forget to talk about it and show
each other tenderness and closeness. For "When the
energy returns, the desire comes to six"!
For those who feel that the desire exists and that it
is only the body that says from there are good aids to
Since it is usually the dry mucous membranes that
cause problems, lubricants are a good alternative. There
are two types of different lubricants, one water-based
and one silicone-based. The water-based lubricant has a
firmer consistency while the silicone-based sits on
longer and is drier. Experiment. If you are very dry and
cramped you can also try a prescription estrogen
ointment (available at the pharmacy).
Clean the abdomen with oil, eg baby oil or intimate
oil. It works well against dry mucous membranes and is
protective. Do not use soap and remember that water also
If you use a condom (to avoid further pregnancy and
infections), you should primarily combine with lubricant
as oil can destroy the condom material.
Talk to others in the same situation
Sometimes it may feel good to talk to others in the
same situation, or to be advised by toddler parents with
several children. At the meeting place Netdoktor Barn &
