Re: S/o- How soon after giving birth

We tried at around 4 weeks but had to stop. I had to have a c-section so it didn't hurt where you would think it would hurt but my UTERUS felt like it was going to FALL OUT. We waited a few more weeks and then it was ok.

Re: S/o- How soon after giving birth

With my first we waited about 2 weeks. With my last I think we waited about 3 months. I think the difference was with the hubbys. Second hubby had 2 kids 11.5 months apart and I think he was a little scared to dtd too soon.

Re: S/o- How soon after giving birth

with #1 it was exactly six weeks, I had the check-up and it was our anniversary that day....I pumped for the baby and we took a night away.

with #2 I *think* it was around 5 weeks.

Re: S/o- How soon after giving birth

It was a little over 2 months because it took me a full 8+ weeks to recover from my c-section, 3rd degree episiotomy, and torn urethra before I could even think of anything going near that area. The first time was VERY scary for me because I was expecting alot of pain, it hurt alittle at first, but my bf was my first and only and it used to hurt all the time but having dd in the birthcanal stretch and moved things so I actually enjoy it now. We never did it while I was pregnant (probably because bf was incredibly distrought about his son passing away the same day we found out I was preggo so sex was the last thing on his mind)

Re: S/o- How soon after giving birth

After my c-section it was well over a year before we dtd. We had tried before that but it was so very painful. After my VBAC it was about 6 weeks. I tore internally and wanted to make sure I healed correctly before trying... It was much easier on me after a VBAC than after the section.

Re: S/o- How soon after giving birth

We waited at least 6wks with all of them.
With my first, I tore pretty bad and we weren't able to 'sucessfully' DTD until close to 3mo later. With the rest, I was pretty much fine around 6wks. I think with number four, we may have actually only waited 5...

Re: S/o- How soon after giving birth

with my oldest we only waited 3 weeks and I had 127 stitches (the presenting part was his elbow ) and it was not really uncomfortable as long as he didn't rub right on the scars. With the other 3 it was about 2 weeks (I did not have any stitches with the other 3 )
