Post-Partum: 6 Weeks & Sex. {Video}

There is nothing more terrifying after giving birth than the six-week post-partum check up.

I remember vividly sitting in the doctor’s office hoping to get out unscathed. Instead, I experienced the Five Stages of Grief throughout the appointment as she told me I could “resume sexual activity,” “all looked good” and “life could go back to normal.”

I was deemed healthy and all of my nether abilities were given the green light go ahead—much to my dismay.

What she really needed to say was that me and my vagina would never be the same so I would need to essentially “fake it ’til I make it.”

Sure, after a few years I found the humor in it all; but before then, at least, I had the comedic musings of Erin Donovan  (and now you do too) walking me through the process, showing me I was not alone with my “Dead Vagina Walking.”
