Is it ok to satisfy myself after a c-section until the ok from my doctor is received to resume intercourse w/my husband?

I feel quite ok except a slight soreness/bruising feel in my belly. I was told to wait
until 6 weeks before resuming a sexual relationship w/ my husband, but I feel I am ok to satisfy myself in other ways til then/ Is this safe & ok?

  • after about 3 1/2- 4 weeks that is what we did- my husband and I. He would just "play" with me and I would do the same for him! then once I got the ok from the doctor it was on ;) don't worry about it, if you are feeling good enough go for it. I just don't recommend actual intercourse until you get the ok from the doc!
