1. The organs have not fully recovered
After childbirth, it takes time for the recovery of these organs such as the uterus, vagina, and vulva. If you have sex without a complete recovery, it will not only bring pain to the lying-in woman, it may also affect her recovery and even cause infection.
2. Maternal health reasons
Under normal circumstances, the body of a parturient woman can recover in about six weeks after delivery, but it is not ruled out that some parturients are weak, malnourished, etc., which will delay the wound healing time. At this time, if you have sex, the wound will split or hurt will be painful. .
3. Dry vagina
Insufficient vaginal lubrication is an important cause of pain during sexual intercourse. The lower levels of sex hormones in breastfeeding women reduce vaginal secretions and make the vagina dry and not slippery. At the same time, the secretory function of the vulvar glands also takes some time to recover. Under the combined effect of the two, the first few sex lives after childbirth are often dry and painful.
It refers to the involuntary contraction of the pelvic floor muscles surrounding the vagina to prevent the insertion of foreign objects. The cause is the spasm of the perineum or levator ani muscle.
If the above reasons are ruled out, the sex life is still painful, it is possible that vaginal infection has occurred. Candida albicans vaginitis and Trichomonas vaginitis can cause superficial pain during sexual intercourse. It is recommended to go to the gynecology department of the hospital to check the reasons to ensure that the body recovers before having sex.
