Hello,
How long has it been since the childbirth?
Did she have a vaginal or cesarean?
Was this the first childbirth?
When you say she's lost all sensation does she not feel anything or is it painful?
It would be helpful to know, thanks.

Reply to haloprecious's Post: 4.5years since the last but 10 years since the problem was caused by our first.Both were vaginal births. Happened with the first 10years ago. No more children to come. She states she does not feel anything, sex is regular but has no feeling, cant get into it, thankyou

If I understand it correctly, this problem is existing after the first childlbirth. Was it difficult - did the doctors use any instruments to deliver the baby or was the baby stuck at any point during labor?

Is the doctor a gynaecologist whom you saw? Thanks

Reply to haloprecious's Post: Large baby,9lb10oz,40hrs in labour,no instruments used, not stuck at any stage, alot of scarr tissue as it had to be cut to give birth to our second son who was not as large, the doctor was a gynaecologist

Thanks for replying.

The labor was indeed difficult with a large baby and 40 hours is a long time when the average time is 15 -20 hours.
This indicates that it is very likely that the nerves were damaged during the process and hence the vagina is without any sensation.
There is a procedure called vaginal rejuvenation but if the nerves are completely damaged , it won't be of much help.
I don't think conventional medicine has any answers to this though alternative medicine may help.
