I would like to resume intimacy with my partner and had my c-section approximately 2 weeks ago. I was wondering if any of you have resumed, how much time after the c-section, and if so did you have an orgasm and did it hurt?

You're supposed to wait 4-6 weeks after a c-section to have intercourse, to prevent infection and to keep the incision from opening up. I took that to mean that orgasm was okay, but actual sex wasn't. My first orgasm after the c-section wasn't the greatest in the world, but it didn't hurt, and it did reassure me that all of my stuff still worked.

You're not "supposed" to wait 4-6 weeks. My OB said whenever you are ready and feel comfortable go for it. The incision cannot REOPEN up if you wait the healing average timeframe of 2 weeks for a wound to heal. Maya, go for it. If it starts hurting just stop. An orgasm won't open inside, if that's what you're thinking. Cinthia

I was told ta wait six wks after my c-section. I only waited five and when I had sex it was uncomfortable and somewhat painful. But after that I was fine.
