Some people say there are stages to sex after having children. Below are some of the rumored stages. Lol!
Stage one: The post-partum, Don’t-come-near-me- with- that- thing- ever- again-or-you- die stage.
Stage two: The well- okay- but -only- after-I-finish-doing-my-Kegels-and-no-laughing-if-my-boobs-leak stage.
Stage three: The Are- you- kidding- me-I’m-exhausted-stage.
Stage four: Your kid is two and starting to tyrannize your life and you briefly, or not so briefly find yourself in the mutual, or not so mutual Do-we-really- want-to-risk-making-another-one-of-those-stage.
With that said below are some tips that Dr. Yvonne provides to overcoming sexual shyness. Some women after having a child do feel as if they don’t look or feel the way they did prior to having a child and that actually hold them back from being intimate with their partner these tips can definitely help you get back on the right track.

Tip 1: Analyze what’s holding you back so that you have a good sense – vs. a general sense – of the barriers you need to overcome in claiming your sexual self and sex life.
Tip 2: Determine if your issues require extra assistance. If, for example, you’re shy about sex b/c of religious messages you received growing up or b/c you were violated, then working through such issues with a certified sex therapist or counselor will do you a world of good. (You can find one in your area at: www.aasect.org.)
Tip 3: Boost your body image. For some, the biggest challenge to getting in a sexy state of mind and letting that be known is how a woman feels about her body. This also goes for those who seemingly have the “best” bodies. You can start feeling better about your form with regular exercise (as this has mental health perks as well), eating healthy meals, avoiding toxins, and shutting down negative self-talk. Do things that make you feel good about the skin you’re in, like yoga, getting a massage, or wearing clothes that feel like they were made for you.
