Does it feel different making love after giving birth?

BBQchicken BBQchicken
I've heard a lot about making love after giving birth vaginally, and some if it is contradictory. Just wondering for those who have experienced it if it seems different than before you/your spouse was pregnant? (not RIGHT after birth, just in general after having kids)

It was a little tighter after but we waited for a good four months. It did not take long to feel just like it did before.

I've had 3 children. They were delivered via C Section, but I did push after getting to 10 cm with the first two. The babies' heads were almost out. But, I didn't make it all the way.

Anyway, it was just as good, maybe better, after our kids were born. We never waited the 6 weeks or 4 weeks or whatever they tell you now. (We were told to wait 6 wks with my first and by the time I had my 3rd they were saying 4 to 6 wks postpartum.) I don't think we lasted more than 10 day for PIV and oral, and My Man remembers my giving him a BJ the night after I came home from the hospital after our 3rd baby was born. I had been on bedrest, and he had taken care of the other kids alone while I was in the hospital, and he looked so lonely lying in our bed alone. I had to sleep on an air mattress on the floor, because my incision hurt too badly to get into and out of the water bed. So, I said "I know someone who needs a blow job." I had totally forgotten I did this, and he reminded me a few months ago.

He thought it was so sweet. I was in pain, from the incision, from the place the surgical plastic had torn flesh off from the bend in my hip during the surgery, and my baby had a terrible latch and my nipples were sore as hell. But, he needed it, and I was glad to make him happy.

Anyway, My Man has always said there was no difference. Although the orgasms during pregnancy are amazing!!

After waiting as patiently as I could just to have sex again after the kids were born I was in heaven just to be having sex again. I don't remember ever noticing a difference.

We didn't really notice a difference, we were both really horny waiting for the 6 weeks waiting period to end lol but there was a time we didn't do it for about 2 weeks for some reason and I was doing kegal exercises that whole time and the next time we did it he said I felt like a virgin! lol! I didnt realize how good that worked!

I've often wondered about this. We haven't had kids yet, but we've spoken about this topic and are curious about it.

It feels exactly the same for me except that if its been awhile then it hurts where my episiotomy scar is for the first minute. He has to go slow for just a minute.

I was sure that it wouldn't feel the same for him but he says it does.

I put other because I had a C section. Right after I had my son (we waited two weeks against doctor's orders) everything felt tighter and better. After a week or so everything went back to normal and has been the same ever since.

I think it feels the same after giving birth and my husband says it feels tighter the first couple times but then gets back to normal.

Feels the same. But I do have to add that I was pushing my son's head out and then had to stop and have a c section so I didn't have the full baby come out. but it was almost out and had problems.

After vaginally birthing my third child, I can now orgasm only from intercourse. Before, I couldn't...so yeah, I'd say it's better now!

For the man, Im sure it is different. It takes a while to bounce back to the size you were prior to pushing a watermelon head out lol. For me, it wasnt any different because I can work my kegels and make it work.

it was tight and painful before pregnancy and a little bit during, but after it was like a whole new world of sex. My husband was so happy that I now loved sex as much as he did, and the love blossomed into a new career!

I am a female and I've never had kids, but I have done a lot of research about pregnancy in general. And I would say that sex on a physical level will stay the same. Emotionally you could be more connected with your partner. On a vaginal level your vagina will take a long time and exercise to get your vaginal muscles tight again.

I had a c-section, I can't really say. Sex feels good for me.

--I did once have a guy tell me I was insanely tight for being a mom and I was like, "oh that's nice, I had a c-section." Kind of a funny story.
