  • We waited two days. I had literally NO trauma. People say it isn't about wheather or not you "feel" like it you can still do damage. I do not have any damage as a result, but I'm no specialist. My midwife sais to wait AT LEAST 90 days before wearing a tampon/diva cup/or vaginal insertion of toys or penis. *shrugs* I waited two days, but again, everyone is different.

  • the doc will advise 6 weeks and personally i went to a 3 week check up and started having sex once my tissue wasn't sore anymore. but i would wait another 2 or 3 weeks. just to be on the safe side

  • When you feel ready go for it, i waited exactly a week before having sex with my husband and it turned out fine.

  • I waited 6 weeks with my first and I probably should have waited longer because although I thought I was ready I had a pretty bad tear with my son and it had not healed properly. So after having sex it tore again a little, which was very painful.

    I think that you have to do what is best for you. If you feel like you are ready then maybe you are.

    Good Luck
