How long after your baby did you have sex?

So I know its been asked, but I want to know how long after delivery it was until you were having sex on a regular basis? Not just how long you waited to do it.

  • hmm... I think a week or two. Definitely no longer than two :) It wasn't exactly a "regular basis" after that for us. Just a few times a week.

  • I had a c-section and I was back at it about a week later and yes that is on a regular basis. Stupid I know but I didnt hurt that bad. With my second I had issues after that c-section so we waited about 3-4 weeks and we got pregnant again 2m later. This one I HAVE to wait at least 7 weeks as I am getting the IUD. It is going to be a LONG couple months.

  • I waited the 6 weeks then we were really careful and I went on Mirena (IUD). My baby is 8 months and it still hurts me also! It is like he wants to just go at it and not work for it you know what I mean! I am one the ones that I really could live with out it right now!

  • 4 weeks, bu t we don't have a regular sex life. Once every couple of months. It sounds weird but it works for us.

  • I waited the 6 weeks. And I have to wait until after I'm on my period after the 10 week mark to get my IUD. We aren't planning on anymore for a couple of years. And I had a 2nd degree tear (don't know how bad that is) so it still hurts pretty bad.
