  • 6 weeks and make sure you are on b/c or use a condom because you are one fertale lil thing after you have a baby unless you want another one, but dr recommands 6 weeks.

  • My doc told me 40 days and 40 nights was how long you needed to wait (13 yrs ago) What most people dont think about is the rate of infection, there are possible tears and things that dont need the extra stuff when they are healing....and of course the pregnant again thing, you probably dont want that either. :)
