How long after giving birth did you have sex?

I am wondering if you waited the good old recommended six weeks? Or did you do it sooner then that, and if so when? Or later then that? And did you have a c-section or a vaginal birth? ---Myself personally with my first child I waited until at least the six weeks, if not a few days longer, that was a vaginal birth. With my second child, I didnt wait until the six weeks, I think it was either 4-5 weeks after, and it was a vaginal birth. With my third child it was probably with 4-5 weeks after also, and that was a csection. So what about you?

  • I love answering this question lol I had my son vaginally and we waited 4 weeks and everything was fine. It didn't exactly FEEL the greatest though lol. My daughter, however, was c-section so we only waited 2 weeks....BIG MISTAKE!! I ended up with AWFUL cramps FOR WEEKS!!
