  • Did you get the ok?

    We had 3 children and resumed sex 2 weeks after each one but we went to the doctor and was told we could resume. I personally would not unless you got clearnace from your doctor.

  • If you are feeling up to it, you can but just be aware that it might be painful or/or dry. Use lot of lube and go slow. Even though you think you are ready, your body might say differently.

  • I had sex for the first time when I was about 2 weeks pp, and oh boy did I regret it the next day! If you tore at all, even a little, wait until you get the ok. Otherwise, use a good lube (plain, no warming or tingling), take it slow, and shower right after. There is still a risk of uterine infection because your cervix is open, and use a condom. It's not unheard of to get pregnant this early.

  • Call your doctor and ask them if you can resume sexual activity. Some doctors want you to wait the 6 weeks. But others might be more willing to let you do what you want, within reason. I'm glad you are back to feeling more like yourself. :)

  • Honestly we always had sex at 3 weeks post partum with all three. No I di not get the go ahead. You are technically suppose to wait 6weeks at least. But with us it never even hurt me and I even tore with the first two. Not that we have sex all the time but 3 weeks is a LONG time..LOL I was a little scared it would hurt with my first so we just went slow and it di not hurt. So I am not telling you to have sex because I am sure its better to wait but we never did. I had all three vaginally.

  • No, it's not too early but don't let your husband see you wearing it unless you want another child

  • It is not too early, but be careful of getting pregnant too soon.
