What can I do for a smaller vaginal opening after childbirth that is causing pain on intercourse?Gynaecology Sexual Health
I have just given birth for the first time about 2 months ago. I had stitches done and I could feel that my wounds have healed as I don't experience any pain/discomfort anymore. However, I noticed that my vaginal opening is a lot smaller now and the placement of it now is much closer to where the urethra is. I'm too scared to even put a finger in it now.
A few days ago my husband and I tried intercourse for the first time after birth but he couldn't get his penis in and it felt a bit painful. I am not sure if it was due to me being too nervous or if the hole is just too small now.
Is this normal? Any solutions? If the hole is in fact too small now, is it possible for it to still stretch naturally during intercourse? Thanks!
