  • I had stopped bleeding (granted I didn't tear at all). I think it was like 4 weeks ish.

  • I had a natural, vaginal birth, and just had one stitch.
    I stopped bleeding after 2wks and felt GREAT! but I had to do some convincing to get my hubby to! LOL!
    we finally did just a few days shy of 3wks. and it was AMAZING! lol, no pain or discomfort or anything, AT ALL! it was great!!

  • You should wait six weeks no matter what.

  • Anon :52: why six weeks? What is the point if you didn't tear at all, and have stopped bleeding? I agree if you tore, and had many stitches, you should wait but when I had sex at 4 weeks postpartum, I was fine and even my doctor said it was ok.
