  • After my 1st we waited about 5 weeks, but after my 2nd we only waited about 3ish. We couldn't wait any longer...we were just really careful and I had a really good recovery so that helped.

  • My husband and I couldn't wait any longer so we had sex in the fourth or fifth week.

  • you are supposed to wait 6 weeks, you are still healing and can cause damage, and when you go the dr they will ask you and you also get an exam so the choice is yours but if they told you to wait the 6 weeks i would, we did and it wasnt that bad, better to be safe than sorry

  • We waited 5 weeks. I went to the doctor at 5 weeks and he said all was well and to have fun.
