  • I waited 5 weeks until I was given the ok. I personally just felt more comfortable waiting for the doctor to tell me it was ok.

  • I waited 6 weeks and it's typically when you feel ready again and in the mood, but give your body rest! Even if you and hubby have to do other things to get into the mood. I remember even at 6 weeks I was still sore, so 8 weeks would be way... better sometimes women wait 10 weeks even though it seems long it helps your body recover alot.

    Look online and see what you can take for healing maybe a certain cream of some sort might help.
