  • Didn't your doctor tell you? I'd call and ask, maybe there's a reason for it not to be ok for you to do it right away. Otherwise, whenever you feel up to it!

  • Every doctor says at least 6 week after giving birth (no matter if c-section or normal birth). 6 weeks after giving birth is when you go for the check-up to your OB.

    I didnt even think about having sex after i had my daughter. lol.
