  • Did your Dr not tell you? I have not had a c-section but I know my Dr told me when it was safe to do that stuff after having a baby.

  • I think a week or 2 is the limit for a bath, but I was told 6-8 weeks to wait for sex. Even though you had a csection (like I did) your body needs time to recover. I never even dialted, but it was painful to have sex the first time, and that was around 8-9 weeks later.

  • I took a shower the next day, and sex about a month later, just wait until you are comfortable.

  • took a shower like 2 days after my c-section and you are supposed to wait 6 weeks to have sex. Your body needs to heal before you.... have fun with your man. lol

  • I took a shower 1 day after the c-section but I dont take baths because my bath tub is very small.... I had sex I think at 4 weeks after.... Dont have sex until you feel comfortable though! If your moving around good and are not bleeding real bad then I say give it a try! :) Good Luck!
