  • WAIT.

    If you tear your stitches you are going to be VERY unhappy.

    I had stitches too. Just WAIT.

  • You'll get the all clear at your 6 week check up if everything is okay.

  • Do not risk tearing your stitches...holy hannah, sex can wait I promise and you will probably have extraordinary orgasms for doing so LOL.

    I had c/sections so I waited 5 1/2-8 wks(thats taking the average of my 3 pregnancies).

  • Four whole days after my csections : | My incision was closed with some kinda glue.... We just went VERY SLOW. But since you have stitches I'd def wait I wouldnt recommend anyone doing the deed after only 4 days either lol.

  • 2 weeks....we were bad and It wasn't all that fun once we got to doing it. I had a c-section too though so I don't know.

  • About 2 weeks but even then you have to take it easy. You can't be going too crazy just after.

  • I waited 18 days I didnt have any stitches though just a regular vaginal birth, it still hurt but totally worth it!! Take this time to practice your oral skills. My DS is 15 weeks old and my skin is still sensitive in certain spots. But you wait!!

  • After my first one, I was very very bad we did it the day I came home but she was small (4lbs 4ozs and premature) LOL. With the second one I think we waited 2 weeks 3 at the most.
