I was just wondering how long everyone waited till after they gave birth to have sex again? I know you are suppose to wait 6 weeks but I am not sure I can make it!  its been 2 weeks sense my son was born and well recently my mood has returned and I am not sure how long I can make it! lol. Did anyone else wait less then 6 weeks?

Like 4 or 5 weeks. Would have been sooner, but I was so freaking sore from my stitches.

I didn't until after DD was 4 months. I tore horribly and it was very painful when we tried before that :/

With my first I think it was about 5 weeks before I was comfortable enough to even think about it (I had a csection). With my second it was almost 10 weeks. I had a repeat csection, a newborn, a 3 yr old and had a nasty cold all while trying to recover from the csection. So yeah, there was no way I was thinking about anything other than how to stop the pain. As long as you are not in pain and dh knows to take it easy on ya you should be fine :-)

6-8 weeks after I had both kids. I waited until I got the okay from my doctor, because I wanted to make sure I was fully healed.  Dh and I survived.

 2.5 weeks with both, no problems :)

I had a very small tear with my first, and none with my second.
