When is the right time for sexual relations after delivery?
The process of pregnancy, labour and delivery usually interferes with sex. Near the end of pregnancy, intercourse may become uncomfortable or at least physically challenging. It's a common practice amongst some families to avoid sexual intercourse for the first forty days after childbirth. It makes sense to avoid sex when there is ongoing vaginal discharge and pain. Additionally, new mothers are often consumed by their new responsibilities or can simply be too exhausted.

For a man This can also be a difficult time for a man's libido. He may also be sleep deprived too. Some men can have a hard time understanding how a woman can be both a mother and a lover. Sex may be crowded out for weeks or months, well past the 40th day.

Partners should talk It often happens that one partner is ready to start having sex again well before the other one is, and this mismatch may lead to misunderstanding and tension. So it's important that couples talk openly with each other about their respective feelings.
