  • I was so traumatized by the whole experience. Every time I thought about sex I wanted to gag. It took me about. Six months to get over that feeling.

  • 6 months. some women take longer than others, some are ready as soon as the doctor gives the OK. i read up on it and if your sex drive still isn't there 6 months after you had the child, you should see a doctor. for me, it was 6 months. and needless to say, 7 months after i had DS, DD was concieved. thank God for those 6 months lol, or she'd probly would'a came earlier :)

  • you shouldn't do anything for at least 6 weeks b/c of safety reasons and your body hasn't had time to heal. I haven't had much of a sex drive for years, but that's just me. ha! My daughter is almost 2 1/2.

  • I had the desire after 3 days! I was shocked! We finally caved after 3 1/2 weeks (in retrospect, I wish we'd waited the 6, for infection reasons, though I had stopped bleeding by then).
