  • I started having sex a month after birth and that's when I felt comfortable too.

  • 6 weeks. My doctor said that was how long we should wait and that was fine with me because I was sore! (3rd degree tear...ow!)

  • I waited the Dr. recommended 6 weeks. I would have done it sooner though. Even with a 3rd degree tear I wasn't all that sore. I guess I was a lucky one. Better to get back on that horse before you forget how to ride :)

  • i had a c-section so no tearing or stretching for me. hubby got home from Iraq when Hunter was 3 1/2 weeks old, so that is when we had sex :) it hurt my cervix a little.

  • I waited the whole 6 weeks that they tell you after. I wanted to get back on birth control and I wanted to heal. Its up to you though.
