I think DS was probably 3 months old or so, and even then IT HURT.

Oh, as we were pretty much right at 6 weeks. I had tears and/ or episiotomies with all three and man, I was sore.

Re: S/o- How soon after giving birth

I was raring to go when DS was just a day old . Obviously we waited a bit longer than that though - 3 weeks was when we first did it again, b/c i just couldn't wait any longer! DH was fine waiting as long as I needed to.

We tried numerous times unsuccessfully starting around 6 weeks. It STILL is uncomfortable at first... I think BFing makes things dry and tight. I am just now able to enjoy it and my son is 11 months old!

GOOD LUCK MAMA!

Re: S/o- How soon after giving birth

I had to wait about 5 weeks after my c-section because it was just plain awful. We did it 2 weeks after my VBAC.

Re: S/o- How soon after giving birth

I always give DH the "not 'til the 6 week check-up" shpeil and it has worked all three times. So it's always within a day or so of my 6 wk. appt. Poor DH, he's not gettin' much action this time around. It's our 3rd baby, I'm breastfeeding and AF hasn't returned and I'm TIRED! My sex drive is less than zilch
