  • The risks associated with resuming sex before six weeks have elapsed include hemorrhage, septic shock and doing further damage to the pelvic floor muscles which will weaken them further and take more time and work to heal and strengthen.

  • I waited longer than 6 weeks. I was sooooo not ready for sex after only 6 weeks. I had gone back to work, my son was "reverse cycling" where he ate only at night, and I was exhausted. We actually waited about 12 weeks. By then, I could actually get in the mood.

  • I think we did at about 3 weeks. It was horrible. I had a c-section so I couldn't move much LOL (TMI I know).. I was supposed to wait until 6 weeks, though.
