  • Well, I had 2 c-sections and the 1st time I had sex at 5 week and the 2nd time at 3 weeks with no complications. I don't know if you delivered by section or vaginally, but I know with sections they recommend waiting 6 weeks but I also hear whenever you feel comfortable so I just listened to my body. Hope this helps!

  • I WOULD SUGGEST WAITING UNTIL YOUR 6 WEEK CHECK UP...I NEVER HAD ANY BAD EXPERIENCE AFTER MY CHILDREN BUT ITS ALWAYS SAFER TO WAIT TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE COMPLETELY HEALED

  • No wait till your 6 week check up. It is about scaring and healing not pain and periods.

  • I never waited til the 6 week mark and I had 4. The first time should be as slow and gentle as possiable. make sure you on birth control..right now your VERY FERTILE.

  • I say its ok, just use some kind of protection, if u dont want to conceive again!! Some women heal faster then others it all depends, if u feel comfortable enough to do that again, then go ahead and try.

  • Wait for your doctor's go ahead! You may feel great, but that doesn't mean your body is ready. There is a reason the doctor tells you to wait.
