Ovulation After Childbirth

Many men ask when the woman's fertile period returned normal after childbirth. The man or husband must understand them. Female sex organs of a new birth are still traumatized, albeit in very good condition, the female sex organs are still sensitive. Additionally, when the woman is still in lactation may occur vaginal atrophy (thinning and drying of vaginal tissues due to lack of the hormone estrogen in the female body).

Some doctors argue that a woman or a mother can feel the back of sexual intercourse 6 months postpartum. There is also another opinion within 4 weeks of the woman or wife can have sex, because within 4 weeks when fluid emitted from the lips of the vagina after delivery has been stopped can have sexual relations back.

There are several reasons why it took a break to have sexual intercourse postpartum back:
1. To provide opportunities for female genital tissue to recover as usual, especially when experiencing normal birth or caesarean undergo an episiotomy or a small cutout to widen the birth canal the baby so the baby come out easier.

2. Sense of trauma that is still attached to the postpartum period. Despite the physical conditions in normal and good.

3. Prevents infection

Post-birth for 6 weeks or 40 days’ post-partum is a very important and need special attention. Puerperal period is intended to clean the womb as well as the menstrual period. Puerperal blood containing platelets, cells degenerative, dead cells and the remaining cells of the endometrium.

Therefore, the re-examination of postpartum is generally done after 6 weeks. 6 weeks of the time in which uterus return to its pre-pregnancy size shape. downsizing of the womb is a physical change, especially postpartum last. Most postpartum women who not long after, desire or sexual desire tends to decline even none at all.

in an Australian study says that six weeks is the average time for postpartum women to resume sexual relations. but other studies mention the small proportion of women estimated to be as many as 20% of women first-time experience the birth process in a period of 6 months can already feel a sense of physically uncomfortable when the resumption of sexual relations even with an average time of about 3 months faster.

Despite the fact that woman or wife is allowed to resume sexual intercourse after 6 weeks, sometimes women or wives they often complain of back pain when having sexual intercourse despite the birthing process had ended a few months ago. Pain during intercourse is called Dyspareunia or pain during intercourse.

Pain during intercourse is due to several factors, such as:
1. Post-childbirth will form a new network for the wound healing process due to the cutouts for the birth canal is still in a state which is so sensitive that the female reproductive organs have not returned normal.

2. The presence of infections caused by bacteria, viruses and fungi.

3. The existence of disorder or other health problems associated with content such as prime, cysts or tumors.

4. Taking medicine / herbal containing active substances that have properties astringents resulting in inhibition of the production of lubricating fluid in the vagina when a woman is sexually aroused.

5. Psychological factors contributing as well as a sense of anxiety, worry, etc., which include:
- Readiness mental ill-prepared when going to back sexual activity.
- There is a sense of trauma in the past.
- Personality self-less flexible.
 - Interaction poor communication between husband and wife, so sometimes wives or women feel reluctant to have sexual intercourse.
 - Less heating (foreplay) at the beginning of the onset of sexual intercourse. And many other factors.

So the woman's fertile period will be returned after the puerperal period, which lasted for 40 days expire, but should the man or husband gave respite to his wife to abstain from sexual relations until puerperal and postpartum recovery back normal.
