A Turkish friend just shared this experience with me...
"I had to have a forceps delivery, so I had to have stitches. When my husband and I were allowed to have sex after the birth, I had some pain and some bleeding.
Both of us were scared, so I called to doctor to ask if the bleeding I'd experienced was normal, and he said "I wanted to give your husband the gift of virginity!" (I wasn't a virgin when I met my husband)
I was pissed....but what was done was done. The same OB did my son's circumcision. Talk about reconstructive surgery!"
