  • my dh said with him and ex they waited 6wks with dd1 and only 1 week after dd2. We are tryiing now and I am so paranoid that things will go wrong that I am definately waiting the 6wks if not more once i get to the point if we ever get there... seems like it is taking forever to concieve.

  • I had a c-section with both and the doctor said to wait 4 weeks but each time we waited a little over 3 weeks. And when I went in for my check up and the doctor asked if we had had sex yet and when, I was completely embarrassed to tell him that we had and at 3 weeks. I felt like a nympho or something! But he said that was ok as long as I didn't have any pain.

  • I waited like three months. I was in too much pain to be having any sort of party down there. But I tore pretty seriously. If you're able to walk/sit/function normally, you're probably okay to have sex.
