Post partum sex?

I was just wondering how long every one waited to have sex again after giving birth? Did u wait the recommended six weeks or go sooner? Also how did it feel, did it hurt?

  • 5 weeks, 4 days and it hurt long after the 6 weeks.

  • 4 1/2 weeks. It kind of hurt at first (still does, but that could be because of DH's size)...and it felt like things were a lot "tighter" down there.

  • 2 1/2 weeks...I had a c-section so we had to go at it slowly but it was enjoyable! :) ( I healed from my c-section really fast)

  • 6 weeks, I had a small tear that didn't get stitches, so that didn't help either. I recommend taking it very slow and using a lot of lube!

  • 5 1/2 weeks didnt hurt just remember to go slow and see how it feels and make sure your on bc or something cause condoms make it hurt more from the friction might as well just wait the 6wks and make sure your on some kind of bc so you dont get pregnant again
