Quoting Aeonix:

I had a c-section this time and we waited 2 weeks. With dd we waited about 6 days I think. That was a vaginal birth with no episiotomy though. Same with my first, I think we waited 3 weeks. It's been so long it's hard to remember now. ;)

 I had a c section with my first and we waited about 2 weeks too.

With our first, the 6 weeks, but we were young, worried about what might happen. 2nd, like 3 or 4 days shy of 6 weeks. He didn't wanna wait any longer

I waited the 6 weeks. You need to give your body time to heal and it takes a little while for your cervix to close

 I had a c-section with both girls. 1st i waited the full 6 weeks, i was a very rough surgery. The second we waited 11 days. It was painful but we hadnt had sex in months due to a cerclage so we did not want to wait lol PS, use birth control, CONDOMS im sure the pill hasnt had time to take effect

This is totally tmi, but my post c-section sex was one of the best times ever lol. I was so scared about my incision before actually getting to it but it was never an issue at all.
