FRANK BECKLES 12-16-2009 FOR COUPLES WHO ENJOY HAVING KIDS AND WANT MORE: Finding out that your woman is pregnant again while you still have a new baby can be rather shocking. Many couples who have failed to listen to the advice of their health care providers in terms of using birth control after having the new baby have found themselves looking at the prospect of another pregnancy. While becoming pregnant within the first months or weeks after having a new baby may not always be ideal and is almost never recommended, the good news is that there is generally little to be concerned about in terms of safety after the first couple of months after giving birth. Within those first few months and weeks after having your new baby, your body needs time to heal. The labor and delivery process force your uterus and your cervix go through tremendous changes. Specifically, the lining of the uterus may be particularly prone to infection during this time. Not just sex but douching, the use of tampons, or the placement of anything in the vagina can introduce bacteria and cause a uterine infection. Lochia, the material that flows from your uterus after delivery, is a sign that your uterus is healing. When the flow of Lochia is not red in color any longer, it indicates that the uterus is nearly healed. This can take anywhere from three to eight weeks for most women. Waiting for your uterus and cervix to heal sufficiently are important parts of determining when it is safe to get pregnant after giving birth. If you get pregnant before this healing takes place, you are at increased risk for infections or even miscarriage. Becoming pregnant again so soon after having a new baby is not the only reason to abstain from sexual intercourse during those first few weeks after birth. While advice will vary from one health care provider to the next, most health care providers recommend that you abstain from sex until after your six-week postnatal checkup. There are a variety of reasons for the wait. If you have an episiotomy, for example, it may require stitches. Having sex could reopen the tear and pull out the stitches. The same danger can occur if you have a vaginal or rectal tear or laceration, as well. In addition, many women find that they have a reduced sex drive after delivery. Some women complain of pain during intercourse, even long after delivery. More common is the fear of pain that a woman may have after delivery. The use of lubricants and the woman-on-top positioning may make a woman more comfortable, and allow her to take more care with areas that may still be sensitive. Becoming pregnant again when you have a new baby can be scary. If it does happen, as long as you have made it through that first couple of months, you should be fine. Regardless of when you become pregnant after having a new baby, you should discuss the situation with your health care provider so that you can have a happy and a healthy subsequent pregnancy. "How to Have Great Sex After Having a Baby" Written By Dr. Franklyn Victor Beckles, Jr. Article Rating: (2 Ratings) Have Great Sex After Having a BabyThe postpartum period can be a really stressful time in a couple's life. Many things change after having a newborn and this includes sex and intimacy. Some couples have a lot of fears about sex not being the same or even feeling good. Moms worry about what their partners may think about their new bodies. A newborn also takes a lot of time, so exhaustion is a huge factor in initiating postpartum sexual relations. The following steps will help guide you in re-establishing a great sex life after having a baby. Email Print Article Add to Favorites Flag Article Difficulty: Moderately EasyInstructions Step 1Enhance your communication skills. To have a satisfying sex life after baby, you and your partner need to be able to talk. The first thing you should discuss is your fears about having sex. If you had an episiotomy, you may be worried that it's going to hurt. If you haven't lost a lot of weight yet, you may feel unattractive. Talking about these fears can help validate whatever feelings you have. You also need to be able to share your desires. Step 2Set aside a special time for intimacy. You may find that you have a few hours in the morning when the baby sleeps for a longer period of time. Or perhaps he will take a longer nap in the afternoon when you can devote an hour solely to your partner. If you can't seem to find any time when you can devote an hour or so to your partner, see if someone can watch him for a little while so that you and your partner can reconnect. Step 3Bring the tube of lube to bed. Some women experience vaginal dryness after giving birth. This could make Mom feel very self-aware. Using a tiny amount of lubrication can take care of this so you can focus on the more important aspects of intimacy. Step 4Try out new positions. Certain positions may feel better after having a baby. If a particular position is too bothersome, don't be afraid to tell your partner and try something different. Step 5If sexual intercourse is not comfortable quite yet, try a different form of stimulation. Sexual intimacy is not only achieved by sexual intercourse. If you get creative, you can find many ways to achieve pleasure. Step 6Go slow. Don't expect to jump right back into a vigorous sex life. Take your time; acknowledge the challenges, and be willing to be patient. Step 7Enjoy intimacy throughout the day. You don't have to save hugs and kisses just for sexual relations. If you stay connected throughout the day with positive words, hugs and kisses, and intimate gestures, you will be more ready to devote that special hour or two to your partner and reconnect in your own special way. How to get pregnant Hands up who thought it would be easy to get pregnant (especially after having mastered the art of not getting pregnant for many years) only to be greeted by your period month after month? Most couples are surprised to learn that getting pregnant isn’t as easy as just having unprotected sex then discovering two weeks later that you are expecting. But don’t despair – before you start booking yourself into an IVF clinic it’s worth remembering a few pregnancy facts before panic sets in. Did you know that on average only 25% of couples will conceive within their first month of trying, 60% within six months, 75% within nine months and 90% within a year-and-a-half? This means that for most couples it could take between six months and a year to get pregnant. There are a variety of factors that can increase or decrease your chances of falling pregnant and it's important that you take them into consideration. 1) Your age Whatever age you decide to have children here are the fertility facts: statistics show that 90 per cent of women in their twenties will become pregnant within a year of trying, and the other ten per cent still have a good chance of becoming pregnant within another year or so. Women in their thirties have a much lower chance of conceiving after a year of trying. A woman is most fertile between the ages of 20-24 years and by the time she is 35, she is half as fertile as when she was 25. At 40 she is half as fertile as when she was 35 – so you can see how fertility and its decline works as you get older. This isn’t to say that you won’t get pregnant if you are over 24 - many women in their forties conceive first time - so for some women it really is a lottery when they will become pregnant. It’s not just women, of course, as male fertility also declines over age but, unlike women, men do not go through a ‘menopause’ and can father children in their seventies or even eighties. 2) Your lifestyle Before you plan to get pregnant it is worth taking into account the lifestyle factors that could hinder you conceiving. Smoking Smoking decreases your ability to get pregnant because research has shown it reduces the number of eggs in a woman’s ovaries. Women who smoke enter menopause earlier than women who don’t. Smoking can also stop the normal function of the fallopian tubes and the chances of the embryo implanting in the uterus. If you become pregnant and continue to smoke, your baby can be at risk from premature birth, miscarriage and, once it is born, SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). If you are planning a pregnancy and think you need help giving up why not call the NHS smoking helpline: 0800 169 0169 for advice. Alcohol Drinking an occasional social glass of alcohol shouldn’t cause any major problems in terms of your ability to conceive. The problems occur if you binge drink or are an alcoholic, as excessive amounts of alcohol can cut your fertility by 50%. Your partner should also cut down on his drinking. Excessive amounts of alcohol can damage the male reproductive system and can also deplete the sperm generating cells in the testicles. Once you have fallen pregnant, the government’s advice is to either avoid alcohol completely or stick to no more than one or two units a week. One unit is about one small (125ml) glass of wine or half-a-pint of beer, lager or cider. A 25ml pub measure of spirit at 40% is one unit (bear in mind that wine glasses are often bigger than 125ml, so sometimes you’ll be drinking more than you thought you were). Your weight It’s best to try to achieve a healthy weight before you get pregnant. The most important thing when trying to conceive is to experience regular menstruation and therefore ovulation. If you are significantly underweight or overweight, menstruation can often suffer and your fertility may be affected. If you are seriously overweight and you fall pregnant, you are more prone to complications such as pre- eclampsia, gestational diabetes and pre-term birth. Try to get at least half-an-hour's exercise a day, even if this is just walking briskly to the bus stop. Or go swimming regularly - this is a fantastic, all-round exercise. Eating healthily Again, this is tied-up with your weight and ability to fall pregnant, but you are more likely to conceive if you are healthy, and this means following a healthy balanced diet. Getting five or more fruit and vegetables a day as well as drinking lots of water and cutting out junk food can really help you stay healthy for conception. 3) Sex! Yes - you do have to have sex to become pregnant, unless you are going down the artificial insemination route. There are many old wives' tales about the sexual positions which can help you become pregnant, but the aim is to keep the sperm inside the woman for as long as possible, so all it takes is a little common sense. The missionary position seems to work for most couples (with the man on top) and some people swear by putting a pillow under the woman’s bottom so that her cervix is tilted upwards and the sperm have more chance of staying inside and finding the egg to fertilise. Orgasms According to research, a women’s fertility is increased when she has an orgasm, at the same time or after the man does. This is because a pool of sperm is left at the back of a woman’s vagina when the man has ejaculated. When a woman reaches orgasm, her cervix pushes forwards, dipping into this pool of semen and increasing the chances of the sperm entering her cervix and the uterus and finally finding the unfertilised egg. Having sex in your fertile period It is absolutely essential that you have sex in the few days a month when you are most fertile. For conception to occur your ovaries have to release an egg each month – a process called ovulation. If you are having regular periods then ovulation is probably occurring and has been since you first started your periods. If your menstrual cycle lasts around 28 days (which is the average length), you are most likely to ovulate about 14 days before your next monthly period. Because the egg stays in your uterus for a day or two, it is around this time of the month that you are at your most fertile. The trick is to work out when you might be ovulating so that you can ensure you have unprotected sex around this time. How can I work out if I am ovulating? There are ways to spot if you are ovulating or not, for example, the consistency of your vaginal discharge will change around this time to being almost watery and like egg white in appearance. Some women experiencing slight cramping pains either side of their abdomen when they ovulate, which can also be a handy sign. When you ovulate your temperature goes up by around 0.4 and 0.8 degrees. If you have the patience and can take your temperature every morning, keep a chart and look out for any rises in temperature around days 12 to 16. You can also use the gurgle.com ovulation calculator. The calculator predicts your fertile days over the next year by working out when you are most fertile from the average length of your cycle and when the first day of your last monthly cycle was (remember to keep a note of this). You can choose for gurgle to alert you when you log on, so that you are reminded exactly when your fertile period is. Handy, huh?! Other than that it is important for you to have sex regularly around your fertile period. Some experts tell you to abstain from sex until your fertile period and others tell you to have regular sex throughout your cycle. It really is up to you, but make sure you have sex often on and around the day that you ovulate. Don't despair Don’t despair if you don’t fall pregnant the first month or more and remind yourself of the statistics regarding how long it takes most people to conceive. And just because it may have taken you a day to conceive your first child, that doesn’t mean it will happen as quickly again. If you are worried it is always better to seek advice from a health professional, even if it is just to put your mind at rest and help you relax into getting pregnant.
