what's the earliest you dtd after having a vaginal birth?

dd1 was a cs baby so that was 2 weeks but i'm not counting that dd2 (8lbs5oz)as a hb and we tried at 5 weeks ouch but dtd at 6 weeks ds1 was another hb (9lbs12oz) and we dtd no problem at 4 weeks. i wonder if it was a easier birth or an easier recovery or something else?

About 4 weeks, give or take. It hurt, though, so we stopped and waited a couple more weeks.

We did the soonest with this baby. 2 weeks. Didn't hurt at all. No tearing or anything. I don't remember how long we waited with the other three, but I know it was much closer to the 6 week mark. Probably no sooner than 4 weeks. I wasn't interested after those babies, but was wishing we could at 2 days pp with this one.

4weeks, but didt repeat it again until 8or 9 weeks because it hurt so bad the first time. I did have internal stitches though, so that played a part in the pain.

We waited 5 or so weeks with my first. I had some stitches. With my second we waited 2 weeks as I didn't need any stitches or anything.

3 months with this last baby. Only because DH is only home on weekends and she wasn't a sleeper. She was waking so often that there wasn't even a point in trying.
A friend of mine DTD less less than a week after one of her kids and ended up with an infection in her uterus. She said she was passing large globs of pus.

With my first we waited 6weeks. I had a lot of stitches.
With #2 we waited 6 weeks, I didn't have stitches but I did have two babies 12 months apart
With #3 we waited 2 weeks, no stitches.
