  • My midwife gave us the ok at 4 weeks, but Dh was still too tramatized so we waited until about 7 weeks until he was comfortable with it.

  • I waited a couple months even though the dr gave the ok to after 6 weeks. It's not that I didn't want to, I was just too scared of how much it would hurt!
