20 Women Reveal What It's Like to Have S*x Post-Pregnancy

December 15, 2015 4 min read

They say no one can truly tell you what pregnancy is like unless you experience it yourself, which can be a bit disheartening for first timers, but all the tips, tricks, advice and endless personal stories prove to paint a picture of what you might be able to expect if anything. 20 women reveal what sex after birth is like And what about after it's all said and done? Do you just bounce back to normal and enjoy your regular activities, like, say ... sex? 20 real mothers open up about their first time having sexual experiences post-baby, and no detail is left out. 1. "1. SO many leg cramps since my hips were all stretched out. 2. FREAKING FINALLY OMG!" —Mary, 23 2. "It felt a little like a speculum wrapped in barbed wire was slowly re-opening my grade 2 tear. Real sexy stuff. We had to stop." —Lynsee, 29 3. "Ummm... like a finger in a bowl of jelly?" —Amanda, 28 4. "Having sex for the first time after my daughter was born was ROUGH, and not in a good way. You're supposed to wait six weeks after your child is born and get an OK from your doctor, but I probably could've waited another six. At six weeks postpartum, my body didn't feel like it even belonged to me anymore. My boobs were porn-ishly large and leaky, and I hadn't even worked up the courage to check myself out in the hand mirror. But of course, my husband was chomping at the bit and definitely loved my new porn boobs. Our first attempt was scary AF. It hurt way more than losing my virginity and it was actually only like half-sex. I made him stop before he was all the way in, because the baby was five feet away in her bassinet and I was pretty sure I was gonna scream. I still felt kind of broken down there, and needed more time to heal emotionally and physically. So, to be honest, BJs became our new normal for the next month or so." —Claire, 33 5. "Oh gosh, I was terrified! I tore posteriorly and on my labia majora, and after having a bowling ball come out of my vagina I wasn't thrilled to welcome any more visitors. BUT, after waiting 12 (YES 12) weeks postpartum, it was time. I was pleasantly surprised! I thought it would feel like a sausage bouncing around in a cavernous hole, but it was actually probably tighter in there than pre-baby. It felt just like before! Maybe even a little better!" —Drea, 28 6. "Like the your first time again. Nervous you would be interrupted and almost forbidden because of the baby in the house." —Ashley, 28 7. "It felt like absolute fire on my taint." —Amanda, 25 8. "It felt like my vagina was on fire. The next time we used lube, and it was SO much better!" —Sarah, 29 9. "It was a bit painful at first, kinda like my first time all over again. After a few minutes of feeling insecure and just plain weird things began to click and it felt good, really good. Ya know, hormones." —Amanda, 29 10. "Hurt like a mother! I got the 'buddy' stitch after having my daughter so it felt like a Mack truck trying to park in a single car garage. Awful." —Kassi, 35 11. "With my first baby, it was ... rough. I had some complications from my tear that resulted in pretty uncomfortable sex for awhile. But after the complication got healed, it got better. With my second, no problems at all! But yeah, with both, and for a long time, you feel like you will be interrupted at any second by a screaming baby. It doesn't help you suddenly have bat ears and hear phantom crying either." —Grace, 27 12. "A glass of wine and a lot of lube made things possible, but still not pleasure-full! I was so surprised. The doctor told me to wait 6 weeks, so I thought I'd be healed by then. It wasn't until about 6 months that things felt normal again." —Brittany, 26 13. "It was soooo good. Almost like the first time again, but not painful and we knew what we were doing. Yeah, it's probably in my top five best lays." —Haley, 21 14. "It hurt so bad. We tried a few times. I couldn't believe how painful it was. I went to see a doctor and found out that I had scar tissue form as my tearing healed and that was causing the pain. I needed surgery to have it removed, but it was so worth it." —Kira, 31 15. "So scary. I had to wait 8 weeks due to some tearing and scar tissue, and my poor husband was dying, but my extreme fear of putting something in a hole that had produced an entire baby two months before completely overshadowed any hint of desire I may have had." —Natalie, 28 16. "Like sticking a rusty pole up in there — for like at least 6 months. It got better but, man oh man." —Cristina, 28 17. "Like the first time but flabbier (post pregnancy belly anyone?) and more expensive (we invested in lots of good lube)!" —Jessica, 29 18. "Picture a roll of toilet paper. Now replace the toilet paper with sandpaper. That's what it felt like." —Suzy, 27 19. "In all honesty, it felt like a razor blade penis. And I had a C-section! It got better with lube thereafter, thank goodness." —Angela, 36 20. "Like a sad, giant marshmallow that's numb to the world. No feeling at all." —Deanna, 26 What was your experience like?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
