Sex After Pregnancy

Will My Partner Still Find Me Attractive?
Many partners have a new respect and love for their spouse after giving birth. It is an amazing journey that you have traveled together! If you are uneasy about how you look after giving birth, communicate about this with your spouse, and talk it out. More than likely, your spouse will find you more attractive than ever. Remember that your physical shape will come back.
 
Lubrication
After birth, you will most likely experience vaginal dryness, due to the extra hormones racing around your body. This will continue if you are breastfeeding. You can use a water-soluble lubricant to help with this. Experiment, as you did during pregnancy, to see what works well for you as a couple.
