While there's no required waiting period before a woman can have sex again after delivery, many health care providers recommend waiting to have sex until FOUR to SIX WEEKS after delivery.

BUT that’s with lots of considerations, and depends on;

? what kind of delivery the mother had…

? if she had tears,

? if she’s uncomfortable and if she’s breastfeeding – which can cause vaginal dryness and discomfort – among other things.

“The general consensus is six weeks, but that is an arbitrary number. Whether a woman has had a traumatic delivery or if she’s had a straightforward delivery, the right time to have sex is really when a woman feels comfortable both physically and mentally,”


Hormonal changes usually leaves the vagina dry and tender, especially if a woman is breast-feeding.

She might experience some pain during sex if she's still healing from an episiotomy (a surgical cut made at the opening of the vagina during childbirth, to aid a difficult delivery)

To ease discomfort during sex after pregnancy:

✔️ Seek pain relief. Take pain-relieving steps beforehand, such as emptying your bladder, taking a warm bath or taking an over-the-counter pain reliever.

✔️ Use lubricant.

This can be helpful if you experience vaginal dryness.

Note; A Married couple using lubricant during sex (to treat a dry vagina problem) is not a Sin.

✔️ Experiment.

Discuss alternatives to vaginal intercourse, such as massage, oral sex (if you and your partner are okay with it, otherwise it's up to you both to decide).

Tell your partner what feels good — and what doesn't.

✔️ Make time. Set aside time for sex when you're not too tired or anxious.

If sex continues to be painful, consult your health care provider about possible treatment options.


Pregnancy, labor and a vaginal delivery can stretch or injure a woman's pelvic floor muscles, which support the uterus, bladder, small intestine and rectum.

To tone your pelvic floor muscles, try Kegel exercises.


It's very possible for a woman to not feel like having sex after just having a baby, this is perfectly normal.

However, there's more to intimacy than sex, especially when you're adjusting to life with a new baby.

If you're not feeling sexy or you're afraid sex will hurt, talk to your partner.

Until you're ready to have sex, MAINTAIN INTIMACY IN OTHER WAYS.

Spend time together without the baby, even if it's just a few minutes in the morning and after the baby goes to sleep. Look for other ways to express affection and satisfy your partner.

If you're still struggling, be alert for signs and symptoms of postpartum depression — such as severe mood swings, loss of appetite, overwhelming fatigue and lack of joy in life. If you think you might have postpartum depression, contact your health care provider.

Prompt treatment can speed recovery.

Remember, taking good care of yourself can go a long way toward keeping passion alive.


Remember, pregnancy immediately after delivery is not recommended, Women need time to recover from the effects of pregnancy,

To reduce the risk of pregnancy complications and other health problems, limited research suggests waiting at least 18 to 24 months before attempting your next pregnancy.
