This past summer Nikki and her fiancé, Artem Chigvintsev, welcomed their new baby boy, Matteo Artemovich, into the world, as reported at the time by The Inquisitr. Normally, doctors advise that women hold off on sex for six weeks after giving birth, to give time for the vaginal region to heal from the trauma of delivering the baby.
However, Nikki couldn’t wait that long.
“I didn’t even make it to the six-week point, I just started at five. I was like, ‘I’m healed, I’m fine,'” she said.
That would turn out to be a mistake, she said.
“Even though … last night, it didn’t seem fine, but that’s OK. It was a little different. I felt like organs were about to drop out. I was like, ‘Shoot, did I mess up?'” she quipped.
As it turns out, post-pregnancy sex is a fraught undertaking with a lot of factors that need to be considered, including giving the body time to heal, preparing for hormonal changes brought about by the gestation and delivery of the baby, and postpartum changes to the body. Healthline recommends that partners take it slow and talk openly about the process. The website does not, however, mention the possibility of organs falling out.
Brie wasn’t exactly comfortable talking about her sister’s sex life. She said that Nikki had provided enough information about “gross stuff going on with our vaginas.”
Nikki has been quite candid about what pregnancy and postpartum hormones have done to her. In a video she posted to Instagram a couple of weeks ago, she joked about her postpartum sexy times.
“Mama getting her groove back… postpartum panties out the door, boobies still off limits lol, but everyday feeling more like me,” she wrote in the caption.
Fans took that to mean sex was back on the table, according to Page Six, but she later clarified that she was misunderstood.
“Like I’m not bleeding, there’s nothing wrong. No more postpartum panties. They’re out the door,” she stated, clarifying that she was throwing them in the trash.
Nikki has also been open with her Instagram audience about what pregnancy and birth have done to her body. On September 7, for example, she posted a photo showing her bare abdomen and told her followers that she was giving them the “raw and real me.”
