The weird thing is that it doesn't hurt where I had my 3rd degree tear but on the opposite side. It feels like he's rubbing on an open wound, kind of a burning pain.
Is this ever going to go away?

"Loss of the female hormone estrogen, which occurs temporarily in all women after giving birth, can cause the vaginal tissues to become thin and somewhat raw. This can lead to a burning sensation during or after sexual intercourse. Breastfeeding moms, in particular, can have low estrogen levels for months after the baby is born."
seriously...no drive whatsoever. DH isn't pressuring me or seeming to mind (he did see the birth, maybe he'll never look at me the same again!). Lots of cuddling and kisses and sweetness, but no sex. uh uh!
Plus i really need nipple stimulation to get going. its a huge thing for me...and with nursing, milk leaking, and thrush...that is NOT going to happen...
So yup. no more sex.
I agree with this;

Last thing I want is too lay in a puddle of milk! It's bad enough that Izzy keeps puking on me.
