Can you get a postpartum infection from anal sex?

Can you get a postpartum infection from anal sex?

That is not: Advisable, as that can cause tears, or fissures in the rectum esp. Post partum, and can make any hemmroids that you may have worse, and can give your partner a bad infection if he was not wearing a condom, if you have anal sex and then have vaginal intercourse right after that without cleaning the penis in between you could get a very bad infection.

I had anal sex now I'm bleeding having some pain...I'm about 3 weeks postpartum and I had a c-section. Is bleeding normal? When can I have vaginal sex

I had anal sex now I'm bleeding having some pain...I'm about 3 weeks postpartum and I had a c-section. Is bleeding normal? When can I have vaginal sex

Maybe normal: Whether you have a c-section or a vaginal delivery, it can take up to 6 weeks for the uterus to heal and stop bleeding. Bleeding can stop and start during that time. Most doctors say 6 weeks for vaginal intercourse after a delivery. But usually you get a post partum exam around that time, and the doctor then gives you a "go ahead" if everything is healed. I'm not surprised you had pain.

I just had my baby boy a week ago, I don't have any tearing or stitches everything went great during delivery is it OK for anal sex?

Birthing and sex: After passing a cantaloupe thur your vagina, most OB docs want you to wait six weeks to have sex. Now that includes anal since the rectal area was stretched too!!! Just wait it will be amazing and feel better in a few weeks...tell him he will live.

Does anal sex harmful?

Does anal sex harmful?

Let me think...: Just like in any big city, some streets are one-way and some streets are two-way. A vagina is created or evolved to be a two-way street (penis in, baby out). However, the gastrointestinal tract is designed to be one-way, with an opening on each end. Food goes in the mouth, and the brown stuff goes out the butt. The exception is when one vomits what the body thinks is bad or toxic for the stomach.

Is anal sex ok or is there any problem with dat?

Anal Sex: Anal sex is a common sexual activity that humans engage in. There are very few things to be aware of for one's health, but in general, there are no negative health consequences to this activity. I often recommend that my patients have a sex manual to learn 'how' to do things safely. I like the book called "the joy of sex".

How traumatic anal sex is?

How traumatic anal sex is?

Varies among people: Can be traumatic because an anus is not designed for sex. It's for pooping. A vagina is created or evolved to be a two-way street (penis in and out; baby out). However, the gastrointestinal tract is designed as a one-way street, with an opening on each end. Food goes in the mouth, and the brown stuff goes out the anus. The exception is when one vomits what the body thinks is bad for the stomach.
