  • i had a c-section, and i had sex once after 2 weeks, and then a week later had sex a few times again.
    i use to take a shower and wash right before and right after.
    nothing happened. it wasnt all that great because i was sore where my cut was and it was just a little uncomfortable, but it did the job. lol.
