  • You should see your doctor for your postpartum visit and he/she will let you know. My doc gave me the okay at 5 weeks, then I waited til 7 because I was scared it would hurt. It didn't by the way!

  • With my first baby i tore through my butt, and i had sex 2 weeks later, my second baby i tore just alittle got 3 stiches and had sex a week later, with my 3rd i didn't tear at all, but got a virgin stich anyway, i had sex 6wks later only because i was waiting to get my iud in and didn't want mare babys. it's up to you, when you feel brave enough, i would just wait till you stop bleeding first

  • 9 weeks you need to watch out for infections and they are really bad if you get one that is why i waited so long because i got one do to the dumb doc that stitched me up. But the longer that you wait as far as 6 weeks the better your insides will heal

  • you are suppose to wait at least 6 weeks, after you got your check-up.

    we had to wait 4 1/4 - 5 months, because i had my "period" for that long. stupid mini pill :(

  • I waited 3 to 4 weeks after each one. I couldn't hold out for the whole 6 weeks the first time, but my doc gave me the OK after my post-partum checkup 3 weeks after my last two.
