    Default Sex after natural birth, TMI!

    It's been 7 weeks since the VBAC birth of my second child and although we have 'tried' a couple of times to DTD it still seems too tight and hurts a little to go in only a bit. I had stitches after an episiotomy for a vaccum delivery. Just wondering what others have experienced in this glorious topic? How long untill you first DTD and did it 'not quite go in properly the first few times?

    10 weeks after my first birth before we even tried (ventouse and 2nd degree tear), it was 6 months before it felt normal again.

    I had a 3rd degree tear. We tried for the first time at about 6 weeks and it was a little uncomfortable....just had to take it slow. A couple of weeks after that absolutely fine. Every now and then there's a position that triggers it a bit especially if not well lubricated - sorry if TMI (DD is almost 2 now) but mostly all good. Agree with plenty of lubrication and positions that are most comfortable for you!!

    I was a bit worried and scared to DTD after the birth. I thought it was going to hurt quite a bit.

    Just after my 6 week check up where I was told everything is fine and looks good (as good as a vjj can look I guess lol). We DTD, I tips DH to take it very slow, it felt a bit tighter but other than that it was fine, no pain at all. The 2nd time we DTD we used lube which made it easier.

    Good luck, I am sure you will be fine

    We tried at 8 weeks but it wasn't comfortable, tried again at the 3 month mark and it was better. Probably took another couple of months for that tight feeling to go at the start, it was just uncomfortable going in though (tmi).
