Have Sex Again After Having a Baby—Really!
Everyone's experience (and timing) with post-baby nookie is unique. Whether you jump in right in or wait a while longer, these tips will help you find your way back to frisky, whenever you're ready to go there.
Keep Up Your Kegels
“Kegel exercises help the vagina bounce back faster in terms of tone, which increases pleasure for you,” explains Dr. Hutcherson. If you did Kegels throughout pregnancy keep at it, squeezing the muscles that stop the flow of urine whenever you think of it throughout the day. If you’re not already in the habit, start! “The beauty of Kegels is that you can do them anytime and anywhere,” says Dr. Hutcherson, “whether you’re standing in the shower, waiting in a grocery line, or just about to fall asleep at night.”
Tip: Kick the Granny Panties to the Curb
After you have the baby, “get some sassy lingerie,” says Dr. Rankin. Even if you’re not ready to have sex, “you’ll know it’s there, and it will remind you that your mojo is always with you!”
