Now before anyone says anything.. I know your supposed to wait 6 weeks after birth to have sex, I know all the reasons why.. etc.



I just want to know how long YOU wait to have sex?
Did you have stitches, rip, anything?
Did you wait until the bleeding stopped?

With my first i waited one day before the 6 week mark. With my second i only waited like about 4 weeks. I tore with both, had stitches with both..But my second one wasnt as bad and i had less stitches, it healed alot faster. Sex in general hurt for months after my first. With my second the sex didnt hurt at all after.

They tell you to wait because of the risk of infections.
I tore and had stitches and I had sex by 2 1/2-3 weeks.

1st - tried at 6 weeks it freaking hurt, waited again until 10 weeks. I was cut and had 3 stitches.
2nd - 4 weeks, and I wasnt cut or torn.
3rd - 10 days, I got my sex drive back full force
4th kid - 11 days, it was the longest we went without sex and just couldnt take it anymore.

I had sex 2 weeks after giving birth. I had one stitch, but only because i had to be cut in order to push her out... It didn't hurt too bad, just went very slow .

5 weeks both times, tore and had stitches with both as well. I had no pain during sex either, but we took it slow and easy. The Dr told me as long as we were being careful and I wasn't in pain it was okay.

My doctor gave the OK to have sex at 4 weeks PP.
I didn't have any stitches, tearing or anything.



I'm currently 2.5 weeks PP.
and I don't plan sex anytime soon.. I waited exactly 6 weeks with my first and it hurt for months afterwards.
