  • I personally would not go in this early. You are still healing...I don't know if you had a c-section or if you delivered vaginally and tore or what, but going into filthy lake or ocean water could cause an infection. I wouldn't risk it if I was you.

  • I had my daughter 2 years and 6 days ago and I still haven't been swimming lol.

    Anyway, if the lochia has stopped and you're feeling well healed it's fine. If you're still feeling sore or have stitches then avoid it.

  • I went swimming in a pool 3 weeks after my daughter was born. The bleeding had stopped and I had taken several baths. I asked my dr and they okayed it.
