  • 8 weeks with the first and 16 with the second... The last thing I wanted after I had a baby was sex! We didn't have sex after my first trimester either... It was to painful.

  • We waited the full 6 weeks. I was in so much pain even then. I dont think its worth re-tearing or hurting something. Theres a reason the doctor tells you to wait.

  • 7 or 8 weeks and it hurt like hell.

  • With our first 2 we only waited about 3 weeks. But our 3rd baby is only 8 weeks old and we have only had sex once since I had her. She was 6 weeks and 3 days then. It hurt pretty bad so we haven't had sex again since then. The only reason we waited so long this time is b/c I had my tubes tied after her and didn't to mess something up with that. I had c-sections with all 3 of mine.

    I have really been wanting it lately, though, so I don't know how much longer I'm going to be able to wait. :-)

  • My provider never told us to wait six weeks, she said it was fine to resume sex once bleeding had stopped completely. We resumed before my six week postpartum check up. I did not find it to be the best sex of my entire life, but it wasn't bad either.

  • I tore really bad and had lots of stitches. We waited a LONG 5 wks and tried to, but it hurt too bad. Tried again at 6 wks, but we had to do it very gentle and soft. I think at 8wks pp everything was ok. Still tender though.
