  • I didn't do it with my first and won't with this one. My cousin did though and her kids are 10 months apart.

  • I DID. I have irish triplets! I always waited 2 weeks. Ahem..... wait the 6 weeks.
    You are too fertile during that time. :) Just use protection and you'll be fine.

  • You are not totally healed. Wait for intercourse but you can do other things until then

  • DH and I did it less than two weeks after I gave birth. He was very careful to not hurt me.

  • I did 4 weeks later but it was with protection and very careful! If you feel good then give it a go but please use protection otherwise you WILL get pregnant again.

  • I was told the reason you shouldn't is because there are tiny tears down there and its easier to become infected and have complications. I didn't wait with my first one, but I did with the other two.

  • After the birth of my first child, I did only because I was SOOOO horny that I attacked hubby one nite and completely forgot about doctor's orders. I didn't have any problems as a result.
