Sex after D&C?

I was wondering, as I was being discharged from the hospital they said no sex for 4 weeks. But my dr didn't follow up with me after the procedure and no one said why so I was just curious as to why?? I didn't think I'd want to be intimate with my husband for months at first but I feel a strong attraction to him. Perhaps I just want the closeness or because of how great he's been for me through all of this... I'm not sure...ugh I'm so confused

To decrease risk of infection, give time for your body to go back to normal and to not overdo it.

This.

Quoting Turtledoves:

To decrease risk of infection, give time for your body to go back to normal and to not overdo it.

I had a D&C and we had sex 2 weeks later. I had a 2 week follow up, basically, the doctor didn't say not to, but he lead me to feel I was healed, my cervix and uterus were healed and returned to normal. I felt just fine.

I was intstructed to wait for two weeks. I'm not sure what the reasoning was for 4 weeks, but there must of been something? Have you talked to your doctor about it?

My doctor said nothing happening in there until she had seen me for a post op visit and cleared me. I saw her about 2 weeks after the surgery and she said everything was fine.
