When do new moms and dads start having sex again?
It all depends on the couple. But, I hate to say it, many times, about 3-4 months after the baby is born, you actually have to start scheduling sex. But if you do schedule sex, you will be so much happier. If you are a single mother or father, schedule a masturbation session. It is just really important. What does sex do for the family unit? The best thing for a child is a strong parental unit. Sex strengthens the parental unit. Sex can do so many things, amongst releasing stress and having fun, it can provide further bonding and feelings of adoration for your man or woman.
Why do we ignore this need?
Because we do not consider it a need, we couch sex as entertainment, a pleasure, but not a need. Sex is actually a need, with many health benefits. According to Dr. Mercola, the health benefits of sex are:
- Improved Immunity. People who have sex frequently (one or two times a week) have significantly higher levels of immunoglobulin A (IgA). .
- Heart Health.
- Lower Blood Pressure.
- It’s a Form of Exercise.
- Pain Relief.
- May Help Reduce Risk of Prostate Cancer.
- Improve Sleep.
- Stress Relief.
Sexual activity not only provides many of the same benefits to your heart as exercise but also keeps levels of estrogen and testosterone in balance, which is important for heart health. Sexual activity, and specifically intercourse, is linked to better stress response and lower blood pressure.
Do not place pressure on yourself to have sex, but schedule it anyways. It sounds contradictory, because it is. Most things are. If that time comes, you may surprise yourself and feel really really good. In the innovative book, Sex at Dawn, the pre-historic Origins of Modern Sexuality. The author discusses that sex originally was established as a bonding activity amongst tribe members. The bonding was necessary for survival. We may not be living in caves with predators about to attack us, regardless: bonding still is necessary for survival.
