When did you have sex after baby. It's been almost three weeks since having my daughter, I stopped bleeding about four days ago and my husband already wants to have sex. I told him we have to wait at least six weeks, but have heard people do it before thatI

Once bleeding has stopped is usually okay. Oh and be careful. You may be really fertile. Call your doc and ask.

I had a c-section and had sex a week later. Not recommended by the medical community, but eh, no harm done. It was nice, actually. ;)

I don't remember with our first, but it was 6 months (yes, months) after our second.

I waited 6 weeks with the first longer with the second because I was quite sick.

We also waited six weeks with our first, I'm not sure why he wants to rush it this time

Quoting TiffanyRose06: 6 weeks with my first (bled the whole time)

3 weeks with my second
