I gave had a c-section delivery on oct. 25th... it has been little past 2 weeks and sex drive is insane! I know the doctors told me wait 6 weeks but...

was wondering if i could resume with sex this early? I had a follow up check up on my incision and my ob said it looked great and it healed up... I'm not in pain anymore and my bleeding is almost gone... I read on forums that some women start having sex before the 6 weeks and they were fine... what's your opinion on this?

(let a side that I know i will need to use protection and be gentle)

  • I didn't have a c-section but we only waited 3.5 weeks to... We were careful and it didn't hurt anything!! I think you should listen toy our body and just go with it.

  • I am telling you, wait. I had sex two weeks following... not smart at all... I was able to do so as long as it was gentle at about 3.5 weeks; but please hold out, you do not want to cause an infection or worse injure yourself...

  • WELL, LUCKILY IF YOU DIDNT GIVE BIRTH THROUGH THE VAGINA, AND DECIDED TO HAVE SEX JUST A FEW WEEKS AFTER BIRTH, I TELL YA, IT WOULD BE LIKE A HOTDOG MOVING IN A HALLWAY.

    YOUR MAN WOULDNT BE ABLE TO FEEL A THING =\
