losing sensation
Hi Dr. Bets

Im 4 months pregnant with my first baby and still deciding what type of birth to have, natural or c-section. i have heard alot of myths as well. Is it true that you lose sensation when you have intercourse after having a natural birth?

Dear Shan
No it isn't true! Natural is always best, but your gyne will decide in the last few prenatal visits whether you will be able to give birth naturally (whether your pelvis is big enough and baby lies in the right position). There are more risks when having a C/Section not only to yourself but to the baby too.
