Precautions for postpartum sexual activity, abstinence during pregnancy, and both spouses need to be patient. So, how about waiting until postpartum to have the same room? How long can postpartum take? Let's take a look at preventive measures for postpartum sexual activity.
After childbirth, intimate contact between a new mother and her husband often leads to many new problems. How to have intimate contact with your husband is also an important component of postpartum recovery.
Reminder 1: Seize the best time to resume sexual activity. After 6 weeks postpartum, the new mother should undergo a comprehensive examination. If the reproductive organs recover well and feel ready, this is the best time to resume sexual activity.
Reminder 2: Do not have sex early after childbirth. Early sex can lead to many gynecological diseases. If there are vaginal lacerations, cervical lacerations, or episiotomy, pain, bleeding, and organ damage can also occur, affecting wound healing. In addition, new mothers have low estrogen levels, dry vagina, poor elasticity, and early sexual activity can easily damage the vagina.
Reminder 3: The first intimate contact after childbirth should be careful. The new mother's cervix and vaginal opening secrete less lubricant. Therefore, during the first intimate contact after childbirth, the husband should have a more romantic and gentle rehearsal, and must be gentle and not impatient when making a room. Due to the husband's long-term abstinence, he is prone to more intense movements, leading to perineal tissue damage and bleeding.
Reminder 4: Don't forget to use contraception when starting sexual activity after childbirth. Many unexpected pregnancies occur in the first few months after childbirth. Since 21 days postpartum, some pregnant women may start ovulating, and if they have sex, they are likely to become pregnant again. Therefore, pregnant women should not wait for their menstrual cycle to recover before starting contraception. Ovulation usually occurs about two weeks before menstruation. If they do not take contraceptive measures, they may become pregnant. Starting from the recovery of postpartum sexual activity, effective contraceptive measures should be taken regardless of whether menstruation is coming or not, and risks should not be taken.
Reminder 5: With children, you can still have sex happily. During sexual intercourse, the baby may suddenly wake up, which makes the new mother and husband asexual. Some new mothers even feel that they enjoy sexual pleasure too much during sex. They don't care about the existence of babies, they don't look like mothers. Therefore, when having sex, they are always uncertain and unable to concentrate. In fact, couples can adjust themselves. For example, you can have sex while the baby is sleeping for a long time, or temporarily entrust the baby to an elder or nanny. Couples should give them the opportunity and time to completely relax and enjoy free sex again, which is beneficial for their physical and mental health.
