I had my daughter four months ago and even before I had her sex was always pretty painful. It could take up to an hour and a half for me to be full penetrated as it was to painful for me any other way than going really slow, and even then it wasn't all that pleasurable.
When I gave birth I tore inside and out and needed an episiotomy. I ended up with 35 stitches. My daughter was tiny. 5lbs and she hadn't even crowned after pushing for 3 hours and she got cut out cause her heart rate dropped.
I recently tried having sex with my boyfriend and its was horrible. I'd barely been penetrated and the pain was unbearable and I bled too :(
I'm starting to think my body just doesn't want me to stretch down there, because its seemed like it didn't even want to stretch for my baby and its starting to really frustrate me now because I want to be able to enjoy sex and not have this pain :(
So does anyone have any advice on what might being going on or experienced the same and overcome it?
- I breastfeed my daughter so I know that will be a contributing factor at the moment.
I also use lubricants when having sex/trying to and I do not have any infections or STDs, so they would not be affecting factors
