  • It is different for everyone. For example, after my 1st baby we had sex 7 weeks post partum and I was "sore" the first few times. After 2nd baby it was about 8 weeks after wards and the same. After the 3rd baby we had sex about 4 weeks after the fact, and I felt fine. It may be a few times for your body to get "use" to it again, or maybe your full not healed, and inside is still very tender.
    Best of luck!

  • I think that if it hurts, you shouldn't be doing it. I didn't feel "healed" for 3 months after my first delivery, and probably about that long after my second, but I didn't push it, either. I think if it still hurts, it means you need to give yourself more time.

  • About 9 months until we were back to normal.

  • we did it 5 wks after baby #1 and it was fine
    after baby #2 we only waited a week and a half and all was well
    but I think Im a freak of nature cuz I bounce right back, and sex is always AMAZING for us right after a baby.
    I think after 6wks it would be fine, so if you are still hurting try talking to the DR.
