  • Stiches where? The vagina or the belly(c-section).

  • Not really, though I did wait the full six weeks. And I only had 4 stitches, so it wasn't a huge tear either.

  • I did and upon entry it hurt, but it was fine and dandy after that.

  • I waited 9-1/2 weeks and was terrified the entire wait. Finally, when we did, it was fine and actually some of the best sex we had ever had. He understood my fears and we took it slow with extra foreplay and lube to make sure there wasn't ANY friction (LOL) and it was juuust fine!

  • I had a double episiotomy and I couldn't wait to have sex! I had over 190 stitches in me but by week 3 I couldnt take it and NO it didnt hurt at all. Each womans pain tolerance is different though.

  • I was terrified at the thought of sex! I waited 8 weeks. At first I was very scared but he took it easy and it was fine. A little sore, but it wasnt painful.
