    I waited the 8 weeks postpartum before trying to return to being sexually active. The recommendation is 6 weeks. Not only was I exhausted from caring for a newborn so sex was the last thing on my mind, but I had no sensation down there! Making it very hard to get in the mood to want to connect with my partner! Let me know if I’m the only one who experienced this!!

      Did you have any tearing or an episiotomy during birth? Was it vaginal or cesarean?

      I def have had friends experience this. My one girlfriend said she had to almost re-learn sex with her partner. She suggests trying foreplay and “lots of it.”

      Might just take time!
