After giving birth, how long did you wait to have sex again? Did you succumb to your desires early, did you wait the whole six weeks, or are you still waiting? I'm gonna wait to see what some of your answers are before posting mine lol!

after DS1 I was terrified of getting pregnant again too soon so I waited.... I think it may have even been longer than that because I couldn't get back on BC until after my 2 week check up and then my doc wanted to make sure it was in my system so told me to wait a month...so maybe 8 weeks?

After I had my daughter we didnt wait 6 weeks, but we didnt do it as soon as the bleeding stopped. We waited about 4 weeks. You are supposed to wait 6 weeks because you are very fertile after having a baby and they ask if you want BC at the 6 weeks checkup.

With pregnancy 1 I had a 3rd degree tear so I waited much longer than six weeks.  I was in a lot of pain.  With the second I had a 1st degree so I was ready by the six or seven week mark
