    My baby is now 11 months old. Before my baby, I sometimes had pain during intercourse. Now, is much worse. Not only I don't have the drive, as other women had reported, but the pain is pretty significant.
    any advice on good natural remedies?

    I had that problem too. I would see a gynecologist that specializes in vulvodynia. You can look into the matter more at www.nva.org.
    I don't know of any natural remedies, but my gyno prescribed me a lydocaine cream that helped with the pain, it had to be applied just before intercourse. I hope you can get some relief!
    I also saw a massage therapist who said I had really tight pelvic muscles and did therapy with me to try to loosen everything up. It did seem to help some.
