I'm almost 10 weeks pp now, and sex is still really painful. My vagina is really tight. We use lubrication, which helps a bit... but it's pretty unbearable.
It's pretty depressing. I've never really been that into sex, and now I have absolutely no libido... Nevermind the fact that I'm 50 lbs heavier than I was pre pregnancy. But I'd still like to try, for OH's sake.
We've only tried 3 times... but I'm so afraid of any sort of penetration that I feel like I'm going to end up with vaginismus.
Anybody have any ideas of how to lessen the tightness?
Sounds like the issue is psychological rather than physical. You mention how you don't feel attractive and that you're afraid of penetration. Have you considered pleasuring yourself? I might help you relax as you're 'in charge' and can experiment a little to find out what feels best for you pp (which you can then encourage when having sex with your OH).
