Infertility: may not be an issue - were you having sex when most fertile? (near time of ovulation) At age 17, having a baby may not be the best choice for you. If when making a concerted effort to become pregnant over a year - you are not successful, could consider fertility work up.

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 someone get a burner and concussion at the same time from basketball?

Yes: Sudden stinging down arms or legs is often called a burner. Trauma to nerves in neck or shoulder can do this. Trauma to the head with confusion, nausea, and alteration in consciousness can be considered a concussion. Both types of symptoms may occur during a major trauma event.

Lowered function: While sexual potential can carry through into quite older age, the erectile capacity and ejacualate volume decrease with age. Some lose desire which is entirely psychological. Note the many products on the market for this and the destruction of endangered animals for this (rhino horns, bear gall bladder stones, etc.).

HPT: Most women take a pregnancy test when they miss their period or thereafter. However some early pregnancy tests may be able to detect pregnancy up to six days prior to a missed period.
