  • I always stopped bleeding after about 2 1/2-3 weeks. I had sex around 3-4 weeks pp with all three of my children.

  • They say 6 weeks to heal. It is a big open wound in your uterus. You do not want to get an infection. My opinion is it is better to wait for you Dr to give you the go head.

  • We have never waited the full 6 and one time we only waited 2 weeks. It was what we were comfortable with. It was never painful or we would have stopped.

  • 6 weeks is what is recommended. But you also know your body. Wait until you are ready.
