  • I always waited the whole 6 weeks helps to heal and prevent another pregnancy ...

  • I tried it, after about two weeks, and where I had an episotomy, I tore. And it didnt hurt until that. I would wait, to be safe.

  • I actually waited 7 weeks because I got the Mirena a week after my 6 week check. When we finally did have sex, it hurt. It's been 4 months now and it still hurts. I tore inside and out, so there was no way I was going to have sex before they made sure I was healed all the way.

  • They tell you to wait to help prevent infection. However, we didn't wait and it hurt like hell. If you do try it make sure you are lubed up really good and wear protection. It would be really easy to get preg. again around this time. So be carefull.

  • What's the rush? Why don't you just do everything but the actual act?
