  • My first I had bad stitches and it was about 3 months later. My 2nd was about 4 weeks later, and the same with my 3rd.

    6 weeks is the standard that most Dr's give, but it depends on when you feel comfortable. But wear a condom untill you get on birthcontrol and you do have your check up because you dont want to get an infection. My Dr with my last 2 has told me I could resume sex when my bleeding had stopped and that it would be perfectly safe to do so.
