  • If you got the ok from your Dr they you can have sex. Just take it slow.

  • i would still wait, they tell you to wait for a reason. i would follow the instructions given to you so that you don't cause harm.

  • It is probably better to wait. Your c-section, even though you feel wonderful, is probably not complete healed. Also, I think they say 6-8 weeks for healing time, and because you are more prone to getting an infection down/in there so soon after having a baby.

  • My dr cleared me for sex before 6-8 weeks after my c-section. He had me in for a 2 week followup and cleared me to take baths instead of just showers, and then at a 4 week followup he cleared me for sex. You could always call and ask your dr if you're really feeling up to it. I wouldn't do it w/o the dr's ok, though, just b/c it could cause problems if you're not healed enough.
