  • i waited with all but my last and it was 4 weeks after she ws born, with my first child the first time after waiting the 8 weeks had me in tears worse then losing my virginity but i had lots of stitches and i even 11 years later am very sensitive where they had to cut me (he was a big boy when he was born) with my second child we waited the 8 weeks and it was fine didnt hurt at all.

    the one time we did have sex early there was nothing bad that happened but its not good for your body, you need to heal, i know alot of moms do it rght away and think its fine but there can be problems and to me its just not worth the risk, plus you can get pregnant so easily and the last thing i wanted to have happen right after giving birth was to get pregnant all over again lol.

  • no, sorry, the last hting I wanted was Sex... I waited 8 weeks after the first and almost 3 months after the second... I haven't gotten my sex drive back since I got prego with #1...

    Oh, and even after 8 weeks, I was in so much pain I cried...

  • The reason the doctors tell women to wait on having sex is because :
    1. since your cervix is still open you can and some do become pregnant before the baby is even 2 months old.
    2. Again, you are open in there and you could get a really bad infection in the uterus.
