Sex After C section

I wasn't sure where to put this .. and it doesn't really concern my daughter so i'm putting it here.

I had a C section 10 days ago.. And regardless my husband and I have been together 4 times since then... once was the day after in the hospital..

And i know what my doctor said but i wanted to know if anyone else was given advice about sex after a c section

  • I was told to wait til I was cleared by my doc. I can't believe that you could handle it then. It was incredibly painful at 2 weeks for me. I was actually cleared at 5 weeks.

  • i was told to wait because of clots ESPECIALLY after a c-section. I didnt get cleared until 8 weeks postpartum to do the deed. i was a bleeder though, i over bled for 2 hours after surgery and they almost had to go back in and operate again. Kudos to you though for feelin up to doing it if my fiance would have asaked that quick after i woulda kicked his butt!!

  • I was cleared for sex at 5 weeks post-partum. My belly objected to that since even rolling over or sitting up was still painful for me. I was also a "bleeder" I guess since they had to give me Pitocin to firm up my "boggy" uterus before I bled to the point of needing a hysterectomy.

    Actually, even 2 years after the c/s, the incision area is still somewhat weirdly numb and painful at the same time when pressed against.
