But everything will be a matter of waiting and renewing intimacy with your partner little by little.
What happens to our body after pregnancy?
Changes in your intimate area during the postpartum period are inevitable, but it is better to be aware of them in order to be prepared, starting with good hygiene and proper care for this area that is so delicate. These are the main changes you may experience:
The size of your vulva. It is very likely that after childbirth this area will remain inflamed or distended, this is completely normal and over time the swelling will decrease; your labia majora and minora may also change a bit in appearance, in color and even in size and feel different. Take it easy. Little by little everything will return to normal. To speed up this process, clean and hydrate your vulva with appropriate products that stimulate the regeneration and rejuvenation of the intimate area, such as Zenzsual's Intimate Moisturizing Foam and Moisturizing Gel whose active ingredients will help it return to its usual shape and size sooner, although always after pregnancies and with age this area can be a little larger or distended. If you see that it is something "exaggerated" and/or it does not improve in the course of the 9 to 12 months after the pregnancy, consult a gynecologist specializing in cosmetogynecology. Laser and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) performed by your gynecologist in the office in conjunction with Kegel exercises with @VagiYoga at home can help you get better much faster.
Darkening of your vulva. A change that you can notice even during prepartum, and not only in your vagina, but also in the linea alba of your abdomen and nipples, is darkening. The pigmentation in these areas occurs due to the hormonal changes that you are experiencing; but don't worry, it too will pass and as this will be a stage in which you will learn to work on patience, it can take 9 months, even a year, to clear up. The advantage is that you can reduce the darkening from the first moment of your pregnancy by cleaning and moisturizing it with suitable products specially formulated for the genitals. In this case, we highly recommend using our Intimate Cleansing Foam that contains lactic acid, hyaluronic acid, organic cranberry extract rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, as well as bisabolol that serve to regenerate, rehydrate, rejuvenate and reduce inflammation of the skin on the face. vulva, in addition to maintaining local immunity and pH to keep it free of itching and infections. Additionally, it is very important to keep it hydrated using our Feminine Moisturizing Gel with Hyaluronic Acid, feel the difference by applying it daily in these areas, but be careful when applying it to the nipples during postpartum, wash very well before breastfeeding your baby.
loss of strength Just as the appearance of your vulva changes, the strength of your vagina and the muscles that surround it and make up what is known as the PELVIC FLOOR also decreases the strength of your vagina and the muscles that surround it and make up what is known as the FLOOR. PELVIC also decreases. Strengthening the muscles of your vagina with Kegel Exercises can help you avoid this and recover faster. For this we recommend the VagiYoga Pelvic Floor Rehabilitator , a personalized vaginal exerciser that allows you to tone and recover your pelvic floor muscles more quickly and effectively; helping you not only to improve the tone of your vagina and sexual pleasure for you and your partner, but also to avoid and improve urinary incontinence (involuntary losses of urine when you make minimal efforts such as coughing, sneezing, exercising at the gym or even when laughing) and to avoid "dropping of the bladder or vagina", which is a very common condition in women after pregnancy and is medically known as prolapse.

Vaginal dryness. There are multiple causes that can cause vaginal dryness after pregnancy: breastfeeding, hormonal changes, the stress of having to take care of the new baby and fatigue, can cause a lack of lubrication in your intimate area. For this you can also use our Feminine Moisturizing Gel with Hyaluronic Acid that regenerates this entire area and prevents itching, burning, and discomfort as a result of this dryness, regulating your vaginal pH and improving your intimate health.

- Lack of sexual appetite. Another of the changes that you can notice during the postpartum period is the lack of sexual desire, do not feel bad if this happens because it is the most normal thing in the world, your intimate area is sensitive and you are assimilating all the hormonal changes that your body is going through For some reason, health professionals recommend doing the "QUARANTINE", that is, waiting 40 days or 6 weeks to have sexual intercourse.
About this last change we have something more to tell you, resuming your sexual life with your partner should depend solely and exclusively on you, so free yourself from pressure, take the necessary time and be the one who decides when you are ready, for this we also prepare some recommendations:
Be patient and listen to your body. He will be in charge of telling you when you are ready once your vagina begins to recover, especially if you suffered cuts or tears during childbirth, in which case, avoiding intercourse is even necessary to prevent complications during the first weeks.
Prepare yourself physically but also psychologically. First of all, you should be aware of postpartum depression, see your doctor if you have warning signs such as loss of appetite, very strong changes in your mood, extreme tiredness, easy crying, among other symptoms. In addition to ruling out the above, it is necessary that you anticipate the fact of having relationships again since your mind may not be ready after having the baby since your thoughts are focused on him.

Doing it again doesn't have to be painful.
