  • with my first c section we waited 6weeks cuz the dr said to lol and we were young didnt know better.
    second c section we waited about 4 weeks but i bled for 4weeks and it took longer to recover. if your not bleeding and you feel ready then try but go slow and becarefull your still healing your dr would probably prefer you waited atleast 3weeks.

  • About 4 weeks. Honestly before that I was too tired to even think about it, but I had 4 other ones I was taking care of in addition to the baby.
