Increased variety in the kinds of pleasure one can experience may also stem from a newfound need to experiment.“The changes that a woman’s body goes through during pregnancy and childbirth actually set them up for a better sex life in the future,” says OB/GYN Caroline Colin, MD. “As the baby grows inside of the uterus, the position and location of the most sensitive orgasm triggers move, and finding these can become fun and exciting.” After birth, many report more or better orgasms, and while some may experience issues like painful orgasms or sex, they can often regain their sexual abilities with the help of healthcare providers such as pelvic floor physical therapists. If you’re unhappy with any changes happening in your sex life after childbirth, you should see a pelvic floor physical therapist as soon as you can, says sex therapist Rosara Torrisi, PhD, founding director of The Long Island Institute of Sex Therapy and owner of That Drawer erotic boutique. “Most OBGYNs have zero training in pelvic floor health, and so just asking your doc might not be the right avenue.” Here are a few possible changes in your orgasms that might occur after childbirth — and the steps you can take to recover if you are bothered by them.
