How Long Did You Wait After Having a Baby

Ok so with my baby girl I had "adult relations" at six days past surgery (I had her by c-section) here i am on day 9 and havent yet but I want to... So I am wondering how soon other woman did it, or if they waited the six weeks... (eight in my case) For the insertion of Mirena...

  • Well, we waited a couple of months b/c I delivered natural and tore real bad and had a lot of stitches so I just wasn't ready yet to dive right in.

  • We waited to allow our body to heal. Having a baby can truly stress the body. It needs to rest and heal not to mention you are very fertile just after birth. I waited six weeks after the birth of all three of my children

  • I waited the six weeks when I got the go head. There is a reason they make you wait. Time of you body to heal and so you don't get a utirine infection. Since you had a c-section. You may feel fine in that area. But you use those tumy muscles that have been sewn together. You don't want to rip those open again.
