  • I waited 4 weeks after my first and 2 weeks after my second. Again, you should do it when you feel comfortable with it-it could be 2 weeks or 8 weeks-it should be when you ate ready.

  • 10 weeks for me and I healed fine from my c-section, but I was so tired that the thought of sex was the least appealing thing to me.

  • 5 1/2-7 wks.

    I had 3 c/sections and I waited as I was told except the first time and I had it 2 days before my 6 wk checkup. My other two I waited 6-7 wks.

  • The primary reason for cultural and medical taboos about early sexual activty following birth is because your hormones are all over the place and the chances of you ovulating (several times) are high. It is dangerous to have two pregnancies so close together.

    Otherwise, it's about your own physical comfort and how 'healed' everything is that might get rubbed or contaminated...
