Logan: We get a lot of information about sex during pregnancy, before pregnancy, but what about after? Time to dispel some of those myths. I think the biggest myth out there is that a woman's vagina will never go back to the same size after she's delivered a baby. Ian: That's a myth. Logan: Definitely a myth Ian: The vagina, as you have said, is an amazing organ and will return to its pre-pregnancy size and stay. Logan: So we definitely don't have to worry about that. Also, there is this myth that you have to have sex in certain sex positions after you've give birth, after you've been given the 6 to 8 week okay. Ian: Well, I don't think you have to have sex in certain positions but I do think you need to be careful about sex. Sex can be painful and there can be lubrication issues especially if your head's not really into the sex, your not completely aroused or you're a little nervous about returning to sex. So I think it's a great time to have some personal lubrication on hand, personal lubricant. Logan: Definitely, and if you're having sex at this point consider yourself lucky that your feeling good to try again. But it can be very painful. The vagina can be very sore and you want to just make sure that you're well lubed. Ian: Exactly. First of all there will be some leakage from breasts as well. That is typically common. Logan: Yes, breast milk will leak at the most inconvenient of times -- when you're in the throws of passion. So I think the best thing there is to wear a bra. Ian: What about the myth that breast feeding reduces libido? Logan: It certainly can because especially if breast were your go-to erogenous zone and now they're being used for feeding. But it's important to talk about that. Ian: And I've heard it said that so much oxytocin gets release during breast feeding that it can inhibit certain hormones that can inhibit testosterone production. So there is certain truth in that. Logan: You're less likely to want to engage in sex at that time. And what about the myth that the penis can actually damage the cervix after sex? Ian: I think that that's a myth. You know guys love to think that they're too big all the time. I think the main thing is it's a return to sex. Logan: A slow return to sex. Ian: A slow return to sex. Take it slow, use a lubricant, and lots of foreplay and lots of connection. Logan: And lots of talking, too.
