A 50-year-old member asked:

can it be possible for you to have a vaginal birth after a myomectomy?

Depends.: It depends on the size and location of the fibroid that was removed. If the surgery required a large uterine incision then you could have increased risk of uterine rupture during labor. The surgeon who performed the myomectomy would be your best resource to determine the safest method for delivery.

A 37-year-old member asked:

When is a normal time to start having sex again after giving birth?

6 weeks: For many years obs have always said 6 weeks. I would imagine most patients do not wait that long. With an episiotomy, we feel 6 weeks are needed for complete healing. Without an episiotomy there is no need to wait 6 weeks. The uterus takes about 6 weeks to return to normal size but this should not be a factor. With a cesarean certainly 6 weeks makes sense. In short, i would suggest 6 weeks.

Is it normal to not want to have sex after giving birth?

It is: Part of the postpartum changes you go through is a rapid change in hormones. The estrogen and Progesterone that were surging through your pregnancy suddenly drop down to normal or even low levels. So it is pretty normal to not be interested in sex. Plus your body has gone through a pretty big trauma and you need time to recover.

Can anybody tell me how well the rhythm method works as a birth control?

1 doctor answer6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Timothy Brown

Not very reliable: Using the rhythm method effectively depends upon absolutely regular and predictable cycles (not common) and considerable self-discipline. Since your sexual desire or libido increases when you are most fertile and this is exactly the time you have to avoid with the rhythm method, it tends not to work out well.
