  • I would wait until your OBGYN says its safe or wait till your through the last stage of the bleeding when it is very light and a yellowish-white color

  • Your OB will tell you when it is safe. An exam will be done to make sure all is healed properly.

  • I had and exam a little over 2 weeks ago, she said it looked fine but i wasn't completely healed. I'm feeling much better, but still have some light bleeding... - OP

  • i waited long after 6wks..but that's cause i was exhausted. LOL.. and plus the thought of getting pregnant right away scared me. Let your doc tell you it's ok before you begin again. better safe then sorry.
