    rnp1112,
    These are quite common issues after a C-section. Try to do simple excesises and control your diet which will subsequently resolve your issues.
    Try to do on Kegal excersises to tighten the muscles in uterus area.

    Kegel exercise - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    This will help with the pelvic floor muscles, not sure about your c-section sutures. Maybe a different position rather than missionary might help. Also, if you are like me, then you may have some scarring around the suture area. A vit E oil massage helped me with reducing the scarring around the episiotomy and reduced pain during intercourse. HTH
