Q: I'm a new mom and I'm a bit freaked out about having sex for the first time post-baby. What should I expect?

End the cold war between the sheets!

I don't want to scare you, but, it could hurt a little. Once you've stopped bleeding, it's generally okay to start having sex again, but you may want to wait until after your six-week post-delivery checkup. Be prepared: It won't necessarily be hot and wet right off the bat. Hormonal changes can lead to dryness, and if you've had an episiotomy, you might be extra-sensitive. Not to mention the fact that fatigue and the demands of a newborn could leave you feeling less than sexy. But don't worry: It's all just a matter of time! Allow yourself the flexibility to get back into it at your own pace, and keep your partner in the loop.
