My vagina is like the desert... [♥]Mrs. Taylor 18 kids; Texas 12250 posts

I got the go ahead from my ob to have sex again, and so dh and I got busy, but once he went to put it in it got uncomfortable and we had to pull out the lube, which we hate. Is this normal?



I'm breast feeding if that makes any difference.

Completely normal. Unfortunately. I got back to 'normal' within a couple months, but until then we had to use lube as well.

Yes very normal if you're bf-ing. Lube will become your best friend. Why don't you like it? Is it just the mood killing act of having to stop and put it on? Lol.

Good thing its normal, hut BOO that sucks!



I don't remember it being like this after dd. Sex was GREAT after her, but I wasn't breast feeding her. Wonder if there is any connection...

Yep it's definitely normal.



I was horribly dry until a couple of months after my period returned (22 months pp)

I am 2 years PP and still using lube because mine is dry most of the time but I prefer it this way. I used to constantly be secreting some kind of mucous and it was just disgusting and it was so much most of the time that if I didn't wear a panti liner it would ruin my underwear. I am SO f**king GLAD I don't have to deal with that anymore.

I'm sorry. Maybe try making it a part of foreplay...Like let your SO put it on you, jack him off with it, etc. You'll learn to like it if it saves you from hurting, lol.

This!!
We have to use it too. We buy edible lube and make it fun so it isn't so awkward anymore.

I was so curious about this as well! Happy that I am not alone in this.



But even using lube for me it still hurt. (&we use a lot...) He even knows when its going to hurt for me. ): So DH and I never have sex still...
Now he complains he never gets any. I told him he should have let me jump all over him while I was pregnant. Never take things for granted lol.

It took us a long LONG time to find one that didn't taste horrible. Most of them mad me gag.... and SO and I prefer seperate brands and flavors.
