  • I had sex at 3 weeks too. I think as long as you were protected and nothing hurt you, you should be fine. I know right after you have a baby is when you're most fertile. thats what my doc told me..

  • 3-6 weeks is when most practitioners will give a green light.

  • I think it's fine. I had sex about four weeks PP. I guess infection is POSSIBLE, but, infection ANYTIME is possible. Just watch for change in discharge color and smell and stuff like that. You should be alright though =]

  • yes, you are at risk. your cervix is dialated, and should lubricant or anythign of that nature get into your uterus, it can cause an infection.
    tthey say 6 weeks because that is when your cervix should be closed properly.
