How long did you wait?

to have sex after having a baby? I had my son a month ago and last night me and my husband did it and I was wondering if thats really bad? It hurt a little bit (like it felt like I couldn't get wet enough, I figured it was my hormones being off kilter) and I felt fine afterwards but now I'm feeling a little weird down there, a little crampy but Im not bleeding or anything. Is this me just being paranoid or should I worry? I know Im a total hypochondriac but I just wanted to here some opinions from women that have gone through this

  • People have sex after having had a baby?

    **grin** I got clearance at six weeks. I didn't have interest until LOOOONG after.

  • I had the desire after 4 DAYS. I couldn't believe it. We waited until 3 1/2 weeks after our son was born, after my c-section. Just be sure to use protection, because even if you're breastfeeding, you can get pregnant! I had a period just a few days after we had sex, and I was EBFing. Which means I had ovulated.

  • With my first we waited a month and everything was fine. With my second we waited five weeks because I was a little more sore since I tore a little more with him.
