After the pregnancy period is over your hormones will undergo dramatic changes. Some women will not show any interest in sex, while others will witness an increase in their sex drive. Physically most women are fit to have sex two weeks after giving birth, as the vagina typically takes two weeks to heal and the cervix also closes by this time.
If you are interested in sex after pregnancy, you should understand that there is a huge chance that you could get pregnant again even two weeks after giving birth. Therefore, you have to choose your contraception carefully. Ask your doctor if it is absolutely okay for you to have sex.

(Essentially, it is not possible to impregnate a woman who is constantly lactating, some bit about hormones that we didn’t bother to fact check). We’re not really sure what to do with this information. We feel like we know dozens of people that could really make a fetish out of this. Diapers, suckling, unprotected sex, brilliant. Other than the LAM, this is article is worth a read for those of you who think pull and pray is the only way to avoid Irish twins.
