I am expecting in August this year and I was told by a friend that there will be major changes to the vagina post delivery. Could somebody please tell me what bodily changes I can expect?
I can't tell you about the sex part as I'm 7 months post partum and haven't got the time, mood or energy for that. Lol! I do experience some incontinence once in awhile if I have a full bladder and sneeze too hard. I get around the problem by always wearing a pantyliner that is somewhat thicker. I felt a little awkward down there initially up till about 3 or 4 months but it has since been normal as I believed the vagina has shrunk back. Other than these, I didn't experience other changes.Read more
The first thing is to overcome the fear of the episotomy stitches. For me, I need sometimes to avoid thinking about the cut and pain during intercourse post delivery. Also, if you are breastfeeding your vagina will be very dry and painful during intercourse. You can use non petroleum based lubricant to ease the pain initially. Apart from that, after few sessions of "practising", you will feel normal again.Read more
Not sure if it's too much information, but according to my husband's "physical examination", he commented that it was larger than before having a baby. I only had a minor first degree tear, so for women who have more severe tears, I think it would take longer to heal. Some of my friends experience incontinence as well when they sneeze or cough. You can do more Kegels to "tighten" up the muscles.Read more
