This question is getting asked A LOT lately.



lol



I waited 4 weeks, (after the bleeding stopped). Its typical to wait 6 weeks as suggested, though 4 weeks is at least recommended, (or whenever you stop bleeding.



I felt like a virgin (literally), didn't enjoy it, and honestly wished I'd waited longer.



IF I have sex again after this one, lol, it will be awhile. I plan on waiting the 6 weeks, but I have no sex drive anymore, so I am not expecting to hop back on the horse (so to speak), right away.

At least 6weeks. Sex could cause a huge infection. I can only imagine the pain & mess an orgasm may cause if you are still bleeding.

I was 4 weeks pp yesterday, and dh tried SO hard to get some. I'm scared to death, and I told him NO even though I want it too!! I can't see any stitches, so I'm pretty sure they're all healed, but I'm terrified that they're not and I'll rip them again or something.

This. I waited 4 weeks as well. It hurt worse than when I lost my virginity. I'd wait as long as possible, Especially if your SO is kinda big. I plan to wait th full 6 weeks, maybe more after this baby is born. DH's p***s killed me. :lol: :oops:

I waited five weeks. I was still bleeding (SO didn't care, he wanted it lmao) and it hurt a lot at first, but afterwards it felt aaahhhmazing! I've always had a high sex drive, but sex just feels so much better for me now (I think I'm one of the lucky ones).

They recommend 6 weeks but my OB I had with my first said I didn't have to wait as long as I wasn't bleeding anymore, felt up to it and of course, USED PROTECTION. My DH and I only waited until the day after I stopped bleeding each time:
1st baby: 1 week
2nd baby: 1.5 weeks
3rd baby: 4.5 weeks
