C/s moms: Sex after.

How long did you wait after your c-section to resume sex with your so/dh? Were there any problems if you had sex before the recommended 6 week wait?

  • I can't remember the exact amount of time, but I think it was 3-4wks afterwards. We didn't have any problems, I waited till I stopped bleeding bright red. It was more just discharge at that point.

  • wait for the doc to give you the a- ok. just because you may seem healed on the outside, doesn't mean you are for the inside. there's a reason they say to wait the 6wks. me, i waited 7 j/k. honestly i don't remember, it probly was about 10wks, since when ds was 6wks, we moved to a different state, and was so busy. with dd, i had complications, got infected, ect, so it was a couple months later...

  • after 6 wks when my ob told me it's ok. It took me 5 wks to get a little better so sex wasn't on my mind till later.
