Dilators, estrogen: Sorry to hear you are having pain. You may want to see your doctor about this. Sometimes vaginal estrogen will help you heal. There are also vaginal dilators that can help you adjust to having intercourse again after giving birth. Here is a good website devoted to sexual pain where you can purchase the dilators, if you desire: https://www.vaginismus.com/products/ Best wishes!
