User avatar Hello,
I would take it slowly and be sure you have lubrication. This can be affected by childbirth and if you are a little bit dry the tissues can bleed a little. But, it does not sound like anything to be worried about and as time goes on it will probably get better unless you have rough sex.

Best wishes.
