  • The general guideline is at least a year. It takes your body that long to get back to normal with the hormones and everything else.

  • Until your body is healed, however long that may be. I say if you're enjoying sex, then it's time to start trying/practicing for hte next

  • everyone is different, so id check withy our doctor to make sure your uterus is ready to carry another child. my first three are three years apart. however my fourth i conceived when my 3rd was 6 months old. my uterus still had alot of healing left to do and there was enough scarring that was still healing that the placenta attached too low in my uterus. placenta previa its called, the placenta slid down to cover my cervix. he would have been c section, even without my other complications. there are alot of women tho that can have them back to back without much problem at all. to b safe, go get checked and see what doc says
