I am worried about being intimate after giving birth: Advice?

Did anyone else worry about having sex for the first time after having their babies? After I had my baby, I got the rod put back in, so I’m protected. I had it in the back after I had my first, and it worked the full three years till I had it taken out and fell pregnant. And even though I know it works, I’m so worried about falling pregnant again… I’m 100% set on having no more kids. I even told my partner if I did happen to fall pregnant, I wouldn’t keep it. But I wanna avoid that scenario… how did you all overcome the paranoia? TIA.

Condoms or maybe you could see your doctor about options about tying your tubes

Don’t feel like you need to rush back into it. Let your body recover, and be open with your partner about how you’re feeling throughout the process.

If you’re not 100% comfortable with penetration, stick with oral.
Can’t get pregnant from oral :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

I had tubes tied when I was 26. I had one child, and that was enough for me.

Wow. Just wow. Gee should I get my tubes tied or murder an unborn child if there’s an accident? SMH

I had my tubes tied right after having my 3rd child. I knew I didn’t want anymore.

You better use 2-3 birthcontrol methods to be on safe side. Don’t rush into sex postpartum, i felt the same… I thought the 1st time having sex w/hubby after baby I’d be pregnant because of how fertile I was. I think it’s a common postpartum anxiety

I got my tubes tied before I left the hospital at 27. Best thing I ever did for myself.

Wouldn’t keep it? As in abortion or adoption?
I’d say if you’re that adamant about no more babies, get fixed.

If You’re done having children and are for sure you don’t want any more get your tubes tied.:woman_shrugging: I had three and that was enough for me and got mine tied so I was positive I wouldn’t have anymore.:blush:

SM are seen maybe in other States. But most and a point to put it at at least 90% will not touch you if you are certain age to get Fixed. For what I hear so many people that do not want children at all and would rather be fixed doctors will not touch you. So do your research where you live and find out if you’re truly done partial hysterectomies are amazing

There are many different forms of birth control. Get your tubes tied if you are certain about not having any more children. Or your SO can consider a vasectomy. You can also track your ovulation if you have regular cycles. Giving up intercourse is easier said than done.
