How long did you wait to have sex after you delivered?

I waited 4 months and even then it hurt...I was still swollen. My sister said the same thing...she waited months. EVERYBODY else we know didn't even wait the 6 weeks! I honestly don't know how people even think about it afterward, but hey...good for them! lol. Still, I'm not in a hurry after I deliver.

  • I think it was 3 or 4 weeks. It would have been a lot sooner, but the stitches were slowing me down.

  • Although I had a C-Section I still waited at least 8 or 9 weeks I think. Because I was a first time mom, exhausted, bleeding like a stuck pig and I wanted to wait until I had my IUD put in. LOL!

  • I waited 10 weeks with my first! I was worried it would hurt and it did a little but not enough to stop... With my second I only waited 6 weeks but his birth was A LOT easier than my first and it didn't hurt at all.

  • 3-7 weeks depended on the pregnancy
    one pregnancy it was 18 months later but I was abstinent during that time.

  • With my first I had after birth complications, so it was like 6 or so months. With my second we waited the 6 weeks, then found out like two months later I was pregnant. With my daughter we only waited 4 weeks.
