How Long Did You Wait? adult content

How long did you girls wait to have sex after having a baby? Until you were completely done bleeding?

I want to soooo bad, but she's only a week old. lol. So I am just curious how long you girls put off your drives.

I also didn't tear or anything this time, so there is no pain stopping me from wanting to. =[

  • As soon as you're comfortable with it. I'd wait until the bleeding stops completely, but if you say there's no tearing and your libido is healthy, then I'd say go for it.

  • You are supposed to wait 6 weeks because even though you did not tear there is still healing to be done and an increased risk of infection and what not since your cervix and uterus are still not backto normal. A lot of women get their drive back (especially if not nursing) and many do it sooner then that. Personally I tore slightly with both and due to nursing had NO drive for months and we waited until the bleeding stopped (can't remember if that was 6 weeks or not).

  • I waited the full 6 weeks that my doctor recommended I wait.

  • Yeah, I plan on waiting. I'm nursing too, and done bleeding (as of right now) I don't want an infection. I was just curious =]
