Postpartum Sexual Enjoyment: Does Mode of Delivery Matter?
For some parents, resuming sexual intimacy after having a baby is a top priority. For others, not so much — and late-night feedings and diaper changes may not be the only hang-ups. Dyspareunia — pain during sex — occurs in a substantial number of women after childbirth, and recent research sheds light on how psychological and biomedical factors relate to this condition. Mode of delivery, for instance, may have less of an effect on sexual well-being than some people suspect.

@premlata Despite a perception that cesarean delivery might affect sexual function less than vaginal delivery does, how mothers delivered did not affect how often they had sex postpartum or the amount of enjoyment they got from it, according to research published in BJOG.
