Hi there,

I know this is a little personal but I really need some advice please :blush:

Has anyone experienced a burning kind of pain during intercourse after having a c-section?

If so, anything you can share that helped you ease the pain?

Its 6 weeks now after I had baby :heart:

Hi CelesteDV,

I remember very well that sex was more painful for a couple of months after the c-section. For me it did gradually did get better until it went away. All I could suggest is to use a good lubricant like Astroglide (available at Dischem) and taking extra time with foreplay. Take things slow and keep in mind that your body went through a lot to grow a baby.

Are you breastfeeding? Vaginal dryness is very normal and common while breastfeeding due to the lower estregon levels. My Gynea calls it a "breastfeeding vagina" to give you an idea. :ohmy:

However if it does persist perhaps just check in with your Gynea or GP.

Ps: Most important of all...don't forget to do your pelvic floor exercises, this will also help to prevent later problems with urinary and bowel movements. Even ladies who had c-sections should take extra special care to rehabilitate your pelvic floor since it took a lot of strain during the pregnancy.

Make sure you know how to do a kegel exercise properly! xx

Gloeiwurmpie is right.

I had it with both my c-sections. :blush:

Just take it slow and perservere. After the second or third time you will feel back to normal again.

All the best :heart:
