Sorry if TMI for anyone...I am approaching 4 months PP and I am still bleeding whenever I have sex Now if we go really slow and gentle (which lets face it who wants that all the time?) its fine. But if we speed it up even a little bit I get really crampy and I start bleeding during the act and for about a day after.
I am not experiencing that. It sounds like you should see your OB/GYN. The bleeding...is it heavy?
I've experienced pain after having David, but no bleeding. I read that pain after childbirth (yes...c-section and natural) can last for 6 months to a year! The reason the article stated it happens is due to the thinning of the vaginal walls (because of hormones). One recommendation given by the author was estrogen cream (if your doctor agrees that is the problem and will solve it); the extra estrogen made things more 'comfy' down there. The friction from intercourse itself could be creating tears in the vaginal wall and would bleed. I'm obviously not a physician, but I have read up on the painful intercourse after cesarean section and discovered these problems happen for women who have given birth naturally as well. Try a LOT of lubricant and see if that helps (as the article suggested). If I were you, I would speak to my doctor and see what s/he said about the issue.
Best wishes for some good lovin' in the not too distant future.
The bleeding is like a light period for about 24 hours then it stops. I do not have an IUD I am taking BC pills called Jolivette. I made an appt with my doc for next thursday so hopefully she can help me out cause this sucks!
