Can I have sex?

Sounds like a silly question, but can I have sex two weeks post c-section?

I can't find my discharge instructions from the hospital.

  • yeah. I did. 1wk after my first.I had a baby 4wks ago and had sex the first time 2 1/2wks after. both c-sec. they say to wait but I never did. if you feel ok then go for it. but if it starts to hurt at all STOP.

  • it's not about if you feel ok, they tell you to wait because the risk of infection is higher if you don't wait until you are healed. WAIT!
