It's a universal truth that having a child changes your life and that giving birth is difficult. How quickly you heal after giving birth can vary depending on whether you had a natural birth or a Cesarean section (Cesarean delivery). How quickly you heal will determine how soon you can get back to your regular routine, including sexual activity with your spouse.
If you are wondering how long it will take before you feel like yourself again after a C-section, you have found the right spot. Women, especially those who have caesarean sections, need to pay close care to their health after giving birth.
Medicalnewstoday reports that patients who undergo a C-section typically only need to spend two to three days in the hospital if everything goes smoothly. Women typically experience a return to normalcy after three to six months.
Women usually have pain at the incision site, minor cramps, and discharge for four to six weeks after surgery. In spite of the fact that every woman heals differently, the vast majority of them will be left with less mobility and less ab muscle use.
In order to allow for any internal bleeding, complete healing of the incision, and a postnatal evaluation with your doctor, most medical specialists recommend waiting six weeks after a C-section before resuming intimacy, as reported by Medicalnewstoday. But, this does not guarantee that you will feel ready for sexual activity again after six weeks. The fact that your body is setting its own pace of recovery is likewise no guarantee that your intimate desire won't return sooner.
It is recommended that patients consult with their OB before participating in sexual activity. You should be prepared for some awkwardness the first time you engage in sexual activity after a C-section. Couples may want to consider lubrication as a way to enhance their experience. Your OB may suggest a few intimate postures that are safe and beneficial during pregnancy. You should also be aware of any bleeding or pain near the site of your C-section incision.
