Yep, this is pretty normal PP for most of us who breastfeed. It's hormone related and "dries" you up down there. I've never associated this with C section. Lots of Lube and taking it very slow are the best piees of advice that I can give you.


With that said, the only thing that got things back to normal for DH and I was when I got PG again and my drive went through the roof in the 1st tri and all those symptoms of discomfort disappeared...

Yup its a hormonal issue post pregnancy fun with hormone levels. Like the pp said lots of lube and that can help. Also some docs may give you a estrogen cream so you can talk to your doc about it. Mine prescribed a cream and we used lube and all was fine.

Hope that helps
