Could I have sex? 3 wks after epesio?

I had 3rd degree tears and a BUNCH of stitches. My question is: if I'm not in that much pain anymore, you think I could try having sex? Any experience with this, ladies?

  • Well, I've stopped bleeding. I'm just spotting here and there now. I scared to even check if my stitches are still there or not. I guess it wouldn't be a good idea to have him in there then :-(

  • You are supposed to wait 6 weeks, the doctor tells patients this for a reason. You really need to wait until your cervic closes and you are fully healed....6 weeks.

  • I waited 18 days but I didnt have any stitches. Your supposed to wait until your done bleeding but with that much tearing I bet that its gonna hurt like an SOB maybe practice your foreplay and oral sex for a bit longer!

  • Have fun with that! It might not hurt now, but when it starts rubbing up and down against your stitches...you'll regret it. Think about it.
