  • supposed to be 6 weeks, but if you feel like you are ready then go for it.

    But don't be surprised if it is a little tender, and have lube on hand.

  • it should be 6 weeks. but if you feel that you are ready that i think you could. i didnt wait the full weeks. it hurt a little though, but not too bad after i got used to it

  • different docs say different things. most recommend 4 - 6 weeks. but, i can tell you, i'm not going to be able to wait that long! lol. my baby girl is 12 days old and i'm already struggling!
    i bet you'll be fine at 3 weeks, as long as you're feeling ready. i'm gonna try to hang on that long... ;)

  • well it depends on you really.My ob/gyn told me at my 2 week check that most women dont wait the whole 6 weeks,and as long as you feel up to it to go for it,but just to take it easy.
