I'm confused...I had a miscarriage a week ago and I'm DYING to have s_x but worried about infection. Is it ok if you use a condom? I'm still bleeding but only very slightly. Thanks for your help.

Allison, sorry for your loss. You are right to be worried about infection. I miscarried last week too and was told not to put ANYTHING in my v____a for at least two weeks--no douche, no intercourse, no tampons, I can't even enjoy my own swimming pool. All I can do is take a hot bath by myself. So I would think that s_x with a condom would be out of the question too. My OB told me that s_x (intercourse) after two weeks would be okay but with condom until after my next period.

Hey, we were told to wait two weeks as well. But I took a little longer because I was still bleeding. We used a condom and so far so good. But he is not happy about that.

We only waited a week the bleeding had stopped, and we had no problems.

My doctor told me wait a week... I had a D&C on Fri and the info I received in the brochure says to use a condom as well. I can't wait for the weekend :-)

I am very sorry for your loss. I waited for 3 weeks. I stoped bleeding 4 days after m/c. Dr said I wait for 2 weeks. I was doing with a condom as well until I had my period on Jul 13. I think you should take your time, two weeks is not long. Its is better to prevent the infections than to cure. I am wishing you a quick recovery.

I'm sorry for your loss, they recommend you wait 2 weeks b/c your cervix is still open and infection is a great risk. There are other ways to be intimate without having intercourse. The need to be close to your partner can be great and my DH and I had to be creative. Good luck and I'm sorry for your loss.
