Did you or are you waiting the full 6 weeks to resume sex or how soon?
And WHY wait so long??

When your placenta detaches from your uterine wall it crates a wound that needs to heal. 6 weeks is to minimize the risk of infection

My doctor cleared me at my 4 week check up, I wasn't interested in intercourse before that. I had a tear that was healing. They recommend the wait because your insides are healing (hence the bleeding) and you are very susceptible to infection

I did, but I'm a rule follower. :wink: You're supposed to wait because everything is still healing down there and you don't want to introduce infection into an open wound.

I did, because honestly, I just pushed a 7 pound baby out of my vagina, the last thing on my mind was sex. I also had no desire to deal with possible infections or any of that jazz. No thank you.

"WHY wait so long??"



Because, fuck, believe it or not, I didn't feel like it. It's almost like it's my decision. :shock:

And since your cervix is most of the time still closing it's 10 times easier to get pregnant then any other time. I got pregnant with my second son from pre-cum 3 weeks after having my oldest. Between another pregnancy and infection and healing it's just not worth it in the end. 6 weeks isn't that long to go to wait.

with my first I was cleared at 2 weeks and I had stitches that had to heal then.
This time I had no stitches and my bleeding stopped as well. We are still waiting...

Lots of women DO want to have sex before the 6 weeks rule, though. I'm assuming OP wants to have sex and wants to know why her doctor advises against it.

What's the rush, honestly? Take care of the newb for a while before dicking it up again.
