  • I would ask your doctor because they know your medical/health conditions.

  • i had a c-section may 21, my doc said it was ok as long as i wasn't bleeding anymore b/c that would mean having to use a tampon and that falls under the 6 weeks thing. i would call your doc anyways to double check since you did have a natural birth and i had a c-section, but i went in last week and the docs ok'd it before hand ( i called b/c we were going to a pool party and i didn't know if i could get in w/my 3 yr old)
