  • I would wait more than a week, or dont over enjoy it. When you orgasim it sends ripples/contractions through your uterus which could cause you to bleed or open a stich somewhere. But its your body, so if you feel ready go ahead

  • You are fine to have sex now. Just as long as he can be gentle and not over-do it. Dont put alot of pressure along the cut. try doing it in a comfortable position that you feel no pressure. don't let him lay on top of you.

  • as long as your not in pain you can go ahead. Just remember you are most fertile after you have a baby, so if you dont want another you need to get on bc or use condoms. good luck and have fun!!!

  • When you are ready. The docs say 6-8 weeks, I waited 2 but didn't tell my doc and she released me back to all normal activity at 5 weeks including sex.
