I waited 8. I tore and hurt up until 7 weeks, and I bled about that long too. It was not fun.

I am gonna wait 7 or 8 weeks. My son is 3 weeks old today. I have no desire right now, I just wanna cuddle because I am too exhausted for sex, lol.

I waited 7 weeks with my first two. I had an episotomy to. It was still pretty tender and I was scared. I'm ready to this time around and its only been 3 weeks but bc infection I don't want to chance it...plus I'm still bleeding too.

we waited 3 weeks. my bleeding had stopped at 2 weeks, and i felt ready. we took it slow, so it didnt hurt.

I waited months. I was cut from front to back and my stitches didn't heal in the time they thought they would.
