  • 3 weeks, I had a c-section both times, and with both of them 3 weeks after, we did it.

  • Its been 10 weeks so far for me... should i just suck it up and do it to get the pain done with or what?

  • I tried to make it the 6 weeks but didn't. It all depends on your body. I have to say it took me a year and a half to be able to let hot water near my area again but sex was just fine?! TMI maybe but we all respond differently is the point. One of my best friends didn't have sex after she conceived and the last time I asked they still had not and their son was 2 1/2.

  • I think you should do whatever you body will let you, it will let ya know if you can or cant have sex.

  • I waited about 10 wks after the first one, and it was still awful! After the second one, I think it was about 6-7wks. But I recovered a lot better altogether after the second baby. Just wait till you think you're ready!
