I was told it is 6 weeks. I know women who had s_x earlier but some were very uncomfortable. I would listen to the doctor. Sorry.

Evy thanks for anwsering..I have heard of women having s_x earlier to but I dont know how safe it is..or how bad it hurts...

It was seven weeks before I felt up to it again. Even then, the first few times it was very uncomfortable. But some people do okay a lot earlier.

I would wait..even if you feel ready, actually having s_x might hurt more than you feel like it would.

Heh...I had my baby a week ago and am just fidgeting to go have s_x with DH...I'm gonna ask Dr. if it can be sooner than 6 weeks, since I had a C-section...6 weeks is a looooooong time...

My husband and I had our pre-natal cla__s this weekend and they went over why you shouldn't have s_x prior to the 6-week mark. They said they have had two women die in the past (over the course of many years in the business) because they had s_x too early and caught an infection. Scare tactic?? Not too sure, but it was enough to scare the c___p out of me an my husband!

I'm wondering if s_x is ok sooner after a C-section. Why shouldn't it be?

everything I've read said you should at least wait until the bleeding and discharge stops. You have to give things a chance to heal. But it doesn't mean you can't be close to your husband - there's lots of ways around actual penetration.

4 weeks...........I waited only that long! I have a 4 1/2 month old and in April she'll have a sibling! She was born in March.oh my! I had st_tches as well. Just go slow and if it feels uncomfortable don't do it. I felt I had more control on top....and my husband didn't complain! LOL Good Luck!
