  • I had a really terrible birth with my first, and a million stitches. I waited 3 1/2 months and it still hurt like a bitch. We didn't try it again for another month and a half after that!
    With my second, I had a much easier delivery and no stitches. I waited until my 6 week visit, which worked out well because my husband had just had a vasectomy the day after our son was born.

  • It was different after each. After my vaginal births I was walking a couple miles/day within 2-3 weeks, but held off on strenuous exercise and sex for 6 weeks. After my csections it took longer. I didn't start walking any distance for 5-6 weeks, and it was probably 3 months before I had sex.

  • My 1st, I waited almost 3 yrs before having sex. My 2nd, I waited 4 wks but we had to stop cuz it was tearing the stitches. My 3rd, I only lasted 2 wks and he was super gentle. I honestly don't remember when I started exercising though. They say to wait 6 wks, but everyone heals differently and each circumstance is different.

  • 7 weeks to try either. That's when I had my PP appointment, but my stitches were still healing from a tear.

  • the first was 4.5 months for sex cause i was in a horrible place mentally half the time. i tore really bad and was just not a happy first time mom. i didnt really exercise till almost a year laters
    with my second it was around 6 weeks to 2 months. i started exercising about 3 months after.
