Sex after baby -- depending on how a new mom is feeling, both physically and mentally, sexual activity can resume in usually four to six weeks after childbirth. But what about when it doesn't? If you're one of those couples that feel their sex life after bringing home baby resembles the funeral pyre of the mythical phoenix, you're not alone. But not only can you have a sex life after having a baby, it can be a good one.

It's important to wait for the go-ahead from your healthcare provider before getting back in the saddle -- bleeding (the lochia) should be stopped, and any tearing or C-section incisions should be healed. Maybe it doesn't fit into this new lifestyle or you're just too tired to do it. Drop the excuses, take a shower and try our tips for spicing up your sex life.
