We waited till 6. After my first son it was too painful though so we tried a few weeks later and it was still too painful and it kept going like that until it was better. Then with my second son we waited till 6 and it wasnt as bad.
About 4 weeks.
About 8 weeks with both.
I had c-sections and my doctor gave me the okay to have sex after 2 weeks. But make sure your partner wears a condom as the risk for infection is there.
With oldest DD I waited about 4 weeks, tried it and it didn't work out and didn't try again till after 6 weeks.
With my youngest I waited until the night before my 6 week follow up. I should have waited longer though cause my pelvic bone had separated.
My doctor said that as long as I was safe (used a condom) and listened to my body I could have sex as soon as I stopped bleeding. Just be very careful because you can get pregnant very early on and you are at risk for infection. So go slow, and use protection.
