how long did you wait for sex after your c-section??

ok, this was my third c-section (2 weeks ago), and with the other 2 i was good and waited the whole 6 weeks..........but i feel fine and don't have any bleeding and i am just way too impatient. i was thinking about 4 weeks? what's the worse that could happen? i will explode lol?? they only say nothing in the vagina for 6 weeks.... not no orgasm so that shouldn't be a problem. i just want to know if there was anyone who tried earlier than the 6 weeks and if they had any problems (and of course we will use condom bc i don't want to get pregnant lol). thanks

  • i had a c-section and i had sex a week after i got out. lol. im very impatient and i didnt have any problems. but every one is different. so just be care full and go slow to see how it turns out. i was still hurting up to 6 weeks tho so u never know.

  • We waited til I was about 4 or 5 weeks out. Even then though, my husband was so worried that he'd injure me, so it wasn't really all that it could have been. LOL

  • we didnt get back to sex for almost 8 weeks we could have done it at 6 but we were just zombies and our little guy was put in the hospital at 6 weeks for a infection. honestly i didnt even think about sex a week after delivery i dont understand how some of you have the energy.

  • you can get an infection and/or pregnant again women are VERY fertile after having a baby.

    why not just wait. what if you DO get a bad infection?
