  • Well I had a c-section as well and I think we probably had sex after the 2 week home or something like that. All I know is it was def befrore the 6 weeks.

  • i'd wait a little longer, like 4 weeks. if you had any dilation etc..you can still get an infection, and with the c-section, it would really hurt alot if you tried to have sex right now. even if you tried diff positions you are still using muscles there..with my first c-section we waited about 4 1/2 weeks and it still hurt, heck it still hurt sometimes months later. so i'd wait....

  • I would wait until your bleeding slows down. After My first I waited a month. PP is right about introducing infection, so make sure you urinate before and after sex, and that your partner's hands and penis have been washed.

  • I think I waited a week or so, but I did not have a c-section. I did have episiotomy stitches but with a c-section I wouldn't chance it.
