  • You should be fine, but use a condom one of the reasons why women want sex so badly after having a baby is because of ovulation. Trust me, I waited 4 weeks and ended up preggo.

  • i had sex two weeks after i had my son, but i had a c-section. im fine though, i didnt get an infection or anything .. no ripped stitches. i just couldnt wait anymore. but i just went slow at first to make sure i felt alright, and as soon as we were done i rinsed off in the shower to make sure i didnt get an infection.

  • As long as you feel comfortable with it then go for it! It is possible to cause issues but doubtful if everything went smoothly.

  • I had sex 2 weeks early, and it still hurt, I felt bad cuz my DH was ready to go, but I couldnt. I say wait at least one more week and try it slow, and if there's no discomfort keep going, but warn him ahead of time just so he dont expect nothing
