  • I waited 6 the dr recommends. I would definitely not do it after ten day.. you could really get messed up down there.!

  • If you are in good health..i dont see why not. But i think you should use protection.

  • i would "play around" first :) and see how other activities feel. if that feels good around 2 weeks id say give it a try... if it hurts AT ALL tho STOP. Drs recomend 6 weeks. I did 6 weeks and 4 weeks but I tore badly the first time.

  • doctors recommend 6 weeks, i waited 3 weeks. i had some stitches from the episiotomy, and i thought they were all healed, and at 3 weeks we had sex and I could still feel one there. but BE CAREFUL cuz you're gonna be VERY fertile.

  • I waited the recommend 6 weeks. I always go the go head before I did. I had vagina too. But I want to be on the safe side.

  • the first 6 weeks are the easiest time to get pregnant if you don't want another baby make sure you use protection. Anyway if no stitches or anything like that I don't see why you can't, but I am not a doctor either. GH and I had it again after 4 or 5 weeks with my first baby and I tore and had stitches with her. With my second baby I don't remember, but I know it was before 4 weeks.

  • I waited 3 weeks but I didn't tear at all. I would think as long as you feel fine you could try but stop if it hurts.
