Expectations Don't Influence Postpartum Sexuality, Study Finds

Women's expectations about sexuality after childbirth don't influence their actual sexual function, researchers report in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

Mode of delivery and degree of perineal injury also don't appear to affect postpartum sexuality, the authors said. 

The study involved 522 women in Germany between the ages of 18 and 47. The women completed two questionnaires: the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) and the Sexual Activity Questionnaire (SAQ). Women were asked to reflect on their pre-pregnancy sexual function. The assessments were taken again periodically up to one year after delivery. 

At 3- and 6-month follow-up points, the women's sexual function has declined, but it improved by the 12-month point. 

Over a third of the women said they'd been anxious about sexual changes after childbirth, but the vast majority said that such expectations didn't influence their childbirth choices.
