i had a c section 4 weeks ago and just wondered when can you start having sex again, is it the same time as a normal birth or any longer/less? id hate to just go ahead if anything can happen, my bleeding went bright red and started losing clots at weekend and ended up going to a&e but they weren't really concerned about it, only concerned about my open(now infected) wound and just said if it didn't calm down in 7 days go to the doctor and it could be due to the implant i had put in. well the next day it went back to white with only a few streaks of orange/pink then went fully white and its stayed like that, do you think it would be ok or shall i continue to wait?

You're supposed to wait just as long as with a vaginal delivery because the risk is not to your vagina, it's to the inside. You have a huge gaping wound inside of you where the baby was attached and tha is still healing. It can daily get inflected and since you've already dealt with an infection I doubt you want to do it again.. Just wait until your doctor gives you the go ahead.

It's the same 6 weeks. But if you have an infection you should be holding off. I had sex 6 days pp with my son (and it was ah-fucking-mazing) but everyone on here says how stupid that was.

Depends on when the doctor gives the okay. I waited 6 weeks with my first, I was given the okay at 4 weeks pp with my second so we did and I waited 6 weeks with my third.

With a csection and infection I'd at the very least wait until you'd been seen by a doctor.

I waited 2 weeks after my c section to have sex. After having the baby it was like my husband and I were teenagers again lol kissing was Intense there was No way I could have waited 6 weeks. My incision wasnt closed completely until about 5 weeks pp, but It wasn't infected. If your already infected I would DEFINITELY wait till that goes away first! Good luck :)
