A 31-year-old member asked:

Will it be painful to have sex for the first time after childbirth?

Possibly: After childbirth estrogen levels drop which can cause a decrease in vaginal lubrication. Add to this any stitches or tears that might have occurred during delivery and it can be uncomfortable for some women to have sex. Waiting 6 weeks after delivery, using lubricant and going slow the first few times after delivery is the best way to make sure that it is pleasurable for you too.

No: It doesn't have to...But a new baby, nursing, sleepless nights all add up to fatigue. New parents tend to be tired and tired people tend not to want to have sex. If you have family and friends who can help you, take them up on it. Only you can nurse the baby but everyone else can do everything else. If this lets you get more rest then it will help keep your sex drive up.

Probably not: Some bleeding after intercourse is not unusual. It doesn't represent pregnancy at all, but it also doesn't mean you aren't. If there is any question, take a home pregnancy test. As for the bleeding, it should resolve on it's own. You need to see your doctor if it persists or pain worsens.
