Just 2 quick questions. How long did it take for your incision to heal? And how long did you wait to have sex? Thanks!! And if you don't know, would you mind bumping for me? Thanks!

The first one it took about 2 months for it to heal all the way..I had sex in week 3..couldn't help myself..LOL. This one the scar is already almost healed and it has only been a little over 2 weeks. I have not had sex yet.

I had a c-section in 2004. Sadly, I can't remember it well enough to answer your questions. At any rate, here's a "bump" for you :)

I waited 3 weeks for sex but I was always on the bottom until my surgical glue came off which was more around 6-7 weeks later. I LOVE the surgical glue...if I ever have another c-section I'm going to be asking for it. I've heard such horrible things about staples.

I had mind in 08 and I still hurt from it.... it took my wound to close up about four months later. I was in and out of the hospital !!!! Good luck.... keep it clean !!! and a Q for you are you a bigger person before the baby ? if you are more likely not to heal as fast..... well thats what my doc told me .....

 My incision healed in a few weeks..but..i didn't have staples like a lot of C/S's do to close the incision.  My dr did the disolvable stitches underneath then basically folded the skin and 'superglued' it closed over the stitches.  I waited 6 weeks or so before having sex.
