  • With my first we waited 3 weeks. My DR. said it was o.k. My son was born vaginally and everything was fine. With my 2nd I had a c-section so he really didn't say. We waited though. I was tired.

  • agree with 07lilmama1108, i think that it really depends on you. Yes, the drs say 6 weeks, but let's face it...some of us are just "needy" in that department. LOL.

  • 3 days,thats nasty,as the old people used to say, your behind not even dry until 6 weeks,I'm not being stupid, but,do people really have sex in 3 days after giving birth,omg,that has got to be the most disgusting thing,what man,who say they love their wife,would jump on her after seeing her give birth in 3 days,thats not love,thats abuse,. I have always thought you should wait until 6 weeks,any earlier you risk catching an infection.

  • honestly it was 3 months after my first. I was hurting too bad. And it hurt like H for a while even after that. After #3 it was 6 weeks, but that was a c-cection and it didn't hurt as bad down there.
