Two things women need to know before having sex after a cesarean section, what are they? – Many people think that having sex after a cesarean will be easier than after a vaginal or vaginal delivery. But in fact according to obgyn not necessarily like that.

“Women will often experience pelvic floor problems after delivery, even if it’s by caesarean section,” explains physical therapist Andrea Michelson.

So, the pelvis of a woman who has just given birth is still in the recovery period for a while.

To help relax and stabilize traumatized muscles during pregnancy and childbirth, Ball recommends yoga or Kegel exercises.

2. Wait 6 weeks before resuming sex

While there are no definite rules about this, Tanouye says six weeks is the standard time.

“That’s the average amount of time it takes for the uterus to return to its normal size, the cervix to close, and the incision in the abdomen to heal properly,” he said.

If you resume sexual activity too soon, the risk is infection.

To be sure, Tanouye suggests consulting with your doctor and partner about this sexual activity.
