thanks for query
After having a cesarean, your sister will still need to wait about six weeks, until your sister have seen her midwife or doctor after delivery. They want to ensure that her incision is healing well and that her postpartum bleeding has stopped.
When she are given the go ahead for sex, she need to consider some other factors.
For example, if her incision is still tender, she may wish to use a position where she have the woman on top or a side or rear entry position to avoid direct contact with her operative incision.
The wound, and the area surrounding it, may remain numb for months (may be up to a year) after the surgery. This is due to nerve stretching, or damage, resulting from the incision,
It may be a good idea to explain this numbness to her partner, as it can be disturbing to be touched, or caressed, on this numb area.
she may also want to check into vaginal lubricants to assist her in making this experience as pleasant as possible.
Remember that time and patience are great cures for sexual ailments post-cesarean and post-baby.
Women can feel traumatized (emotionally and/or physically) by their cesarean experience and then may have more difficulty coping afterwards, as they will have emotional issues to deal with as well as the physical pain associated with a surgery Before you do, though, organize with your doctor. what sort of contraceptive you will be
