Permanent affects of viginal birth.
Hi there,

I posted the question regarding normal vs c-section and was advised to go to the archive where I found a few discussions on the subject. Glad to see I am not the only one asking these questions. However, everybody talks about the pro's and con's in terms of labour, but nobody is saying anything about the permanent results due to either of the two.

So, here goes my question? Can you be guaranteed that after having had a viginal labour that your sex-life will not be affected afterwards. I mean think about it. A baby is not exactly smaal and you can tear or might have to be cut. So, does it have any affect?

There is no guarantee that your sex life will not be affected by a vaginal birth, but 99% of women having normal deliveries, do not have problems related to this.
