  • You're supposed to wait until 6 weeks, so you can heal.

  • I wouldn't. It will hurt like hell. Trust me. We tried. And I think ur supposed to wait to make sure you don't get infections.

  • You are VERY fertile right after you give birth so if yo do you better us protection if you dont want to be giving birth again. You can have sex but it will probably hurt like heck, imean i waited eight weeks after giving birth and it was still uncomfortable. most drs would recommend waiting so that you can heal up properly expecially after you had stiches. but if you feel like it just be careful it migh hurt.

  • Your suppose to wait 6-8wks. I had sex after 4wks & got infection in my uterus. I did not tear during delivery & so I thought I was safe...It hurts a bit @ first....I would wait to be on the safe side plus you are pretty fertile after giving birth so I would use a contraceptive ( they say breastfeeding is actually a kind of birth control method but its not 100 proof! ) you dont want to conceive again before your body gets a chance to recover from the previous boxing match! LOL
