  • Absolutely...not to say that we didn't fool around, but my body needed that time to recuperate.

  • No, somehow my hormones returned about 4 days after my c-section, but we waited about 3 1/2 weeks before caving.

  • with my first.. we tried after 3 weeks but we couldn't even get it in so we just messed around.. at 5 weeks we finally did and wow did that hurt, lol.

    with my second.. i STILL haven't had sex since giving birth.. we broke up when I was 4 months pregnant (MY decision). and I honestly am just not ready to get into another relationship with a guy right now, especially since I EBF, so it would just be to difficult.. when I get her weened and I feel more comfortable leaving her with a sitter, then I'll start dating again.

  • No I stopped bleeding before the 6 week mark so we had sex, it was a little tight at first but was fine, maybe around 3 weeks

  • We waited until about 10 weeks after, so we knew the BC had taken effect. It was killer to wait, but we weren't about to take any chances!

  • I did but I also had an emergency c-section so I was fully dilated then they cut me open. I was in some pain for a while
