If you're finding that sex is different now that you've had a baby, you're not alone. Having sex after having children differs from pre-baby sex. Read on to learn how to have great sex after kids.
Never fear, girls! A woman's body goes through many changes during and immediately following pregnancy. You may find that your vagina isn't as tight, or that you don't produce as much lubrication. You may find that you're tired and have a low libido. Luckily, these are normal changes that even happen to superwomen. I assure you that time will help ... and thankfully, time can be sped up with specialty products and lubricants.
In the months after giving birth naturally, the elasticity of your vaginal muscles slowly springs back as your body recovers. You can expedite this process by doing Kegel exercises. Kegel exercises strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and lead to an increase in muscle tone, meaning a tighter vagina and more pleasurable sexual friction for both of you. You can do Kegels on your own, but if you prefer the method that offers the fastest results (I, for one, can't waste any valuable crime fighting time), use vaginal exercise weights. My favorites are the Luna Balls and the Vagacare Weights. Just insert these weights in your vagina, and squeeze to hold them in place. You can use these discreet weights anywhere and no one will know. Your honey pot will be back to normal in no time.
There are plenty of body-safe, women-friendly personal lubricants available that will make sex much sexier and smoother. I keep Liquid Silk in my tool belt at all times. It's a light, long-lasting lubricant that feels amazing during sex, and with toys. It doesn't get sticky like other lubricants. When you feel ready to have sex after baby, experts recommend you take it slow and use lots of quality lubricant like Liquid Silk.
Life with children can get hectic and you may end up feeling disconnected from your partner. Schedule some time apart from your children whenever possible. If you're feeling too tired and run down for sex, let your partner know. If you're not ready for sex yet, get intimate with a relaxing set of massage oils. You can still spend time touching and making out while you get comfortable with your post-baby body. Before you know it, you'll be ready to enjoy sex again.
