Sex question?

Okay this is a tad bit odd for me but I jusg need to know. So I should start my bc pills today. I awill be 4 weeks pp tomorrow. My question is does this mean I can have sex since ill be starting bc or not yet. I'm asking because my doctor didn't tell me anythimg. All she said was thay everything looked good when she checked me down there. I had a vaginal delivery this time with my first son I had a csection so they said 6 weeks. Is it differe t since I had a vaginal birth?

  • Usually you have to wait at least a week until you have sex without a back up method like condoms. As for your body being ready for sex is really up to you. If you didn't tear then it's a good time to give it a try, just go slow and don't be afraid to use the lube because it's natural for you to be dry down there for a while.

  • You need to ask a medical professional before beginning any medications.

  • Wait the 6 weeks so you know the BC is active In your system. Go slow, lots of lube.

  • I would wait for 2 more weeks for sex and use a condom until you start your next pill pack.

  • I would take a full pack of pills before you count on it as birth control, just in case. Start slow because sex might hurt the first few times.

  • Well my first pill should be today and we were planning on using condoms and the little foam that they gave me to kill any sperm. I did tear it was a 1st degree tear.

  • What is the hurry? Are you in a hurry or is your SO/DH?
    I was always told to wait 6 weeks then start BC. When I was on BC the doctor told me to wais a month after starting BC to have sex.
