  • You should wait until you go back for your postpartum checkup. Usually it's recommended to wait until the bloodflow stops.

  • Wow you are lucky you didn't rip or tear. I always tore so I waited the full 6 weeks.

  • I had a c-section and tried to use a tampon at 4weeks PP and it hurt like shit. ive not had sex since i was 30weeks preggo and my DD is 4 1/2 months old but my DH is deployed. So i dont know about sex but a tampon hurt like hell and its small. so to each their own i guess.

  • Well u will feel as u are getting ripped of again... Sometimes women bleed again and yes u should wait just because u can hurt ure insides bad..Let your body rest ...At least for 4 weeks...

  • Kudos to you...I didn't feel like having sex for quite some time. Ask your Doc at your postpartum check but you should get the all clear...remember the inside of your body has to heal, sex too early could cause hemorrage.

  • i didnt rip or tear either. i waited 4 1/2 weeks. It was uncmfortable and a little painful in the beginning, but not so much that i wanted to stop.

  • i was 5 weeks postpartum when i started to have sex again. i had stopped bleeding and it was bit uncomfortable.. i wouldnt say it was painful.. but we juts went slow and easy.

  • i had a c section and i waited 2 weeks. i had stopped bleeding but i was so sexually deprivven all i wanted was to just feel my hubby inside me. we tried to have sex but it was a little more uncomfy then i had expected. so we stopped. but ill add. just feeling his stiffy in me made me happy lol :)

  • When my daughter was 2 weeks old I didn't even have the energy to think about sex never mind do it!! I had a c-section and a fairly complicated birth so I was still pretty sore at 6 weeks. I think the key is to wait until your given the all clear from you doctor and have the energy for it.
    Have fun :)
