  • I waited! My brother and his g/f at the time did not. She had some pain issues and regretted it afterward. I thought it was a little painful and awkward even AFTER the 6 week period.

  • No.. about 2 weeks I think. There was a little pain, but we just went slow and were fine.

  • Wow 2 weeks! How on earth did you have time? My kids both were crying all the time until around 6 weeks. lol. In fact I think we did not have sex for more like 10 after the babies were born due to lack of sleep and frustration.

  • LOL The PP cracked me up. We were the same. No time for sleep, much less sex!! lol

    IMO, I would wait. I have an ex .... niece in-law....I guess you would call her, that didn't wait two times in a row and her first 3 children were all with in 2.5 years from each other. Basically, she was fertile myrtle and having them all so close was unhealthy. Use a condom!!! But ya....OUCH!!! That's what I'm thinking. :)

  • I waited because my best friend had sex 3 weeks after and ended up in the hospital for 2 weeks with a serious uterine infection. I wouldn't mess around... so to speak.
