Sex after pregnancy?

How long did you wait until having sex after birth? I tore on the left side and was just wondering how long people who tore naturally waited....I feel up to it and im def. not sore like I was before but still don't want to rush things...especially if it could cause a problem...

  • wait until after your dr. tells you at your postpartum appointment. that's the safest.
    with tears, you may feel fine, but since you can't actually see if it's healed it's best to wait until the dr. takes a look.

  • I waited till I got the ok. I had a 3rd degree tear. The first time we did it it was aweful and waited another 2 weeks. But for the 6 months it was uncomfortable.
