  • Like the other moms said, pregnancy and/or uterine infection. My midwives said it was fine to resume sex once bleeding had stopped entirely for at least 24 hours, but to use condoms if we did resume before my six week postpartum checkup.

  • discomfort, infection, if you have stitches, you could pop them (and risk getting an infection in the incision).

    My doctor was mostly concerned that I would find it uncomfortable after kiddo #2. After kiddo #1, it was mainly concern over my episiotomy stitches.
