  • 8 months! Man I could hardly deal with the 6 weeks. Well I didnt even wait that long, more like 5 weeks. If you think you can do it, then go for it. You are the one that knows your limit.

  • If I were you, I would wait. My bf and I tried after 2 weeks and I ripped, because I had to get cut, and when he put it in it burned, but after a minute it got better, then when we started going more, I ripped, and it hurt, plus I was pretty embarressed when I had to go to the doc and explain I broke the rules lol. I know how hard it is to wait but its your decision. GL.

  • Me and DH waited 12 weeks because I was so messed up down there. I tore top and bottom. And even when we did, it hurt so bad that it was pretty sporadic when we did do it.
    I couldn't imagine having sex 1 week after having a baby. Wow!!!!

  • I waited about 2 1/2 weeks and it was okay but a little uncomfortable. I had no tearing, no episiotomy so I was pretty much healed up.
