i had my baby boy 4 weeks ago.. and i know people say dont have sex till your 6 weeks postpartum but i couldve sworn my doctor said you can anytime from 4 to 6 weeks postpartum.. but to becareful bc you can get pregnant very easily. Well my husband said he remembers her saying that too. But i was just wondering how many of you didnt wait till 6 weeks and if everything was okay if you didnt wait and did it around 4?

well i guess it all depends on how you are feeling/healing...we waited about 4 weeks or so, and took it REALLY easy....you don't want to risk infection and stuff....there is a reason they say 6 weeks...trust me, after going through labor, you probably won't be in a hurry to have sex anyways!! lol =

The reason why you're supposed to wait for 6 weeks is to make sure that you're all healed up and that your womb has shrunk back down to its usual size. If you have sex before this point, then you may be risking infection. =

We tried at 3 1/2 weeks and it hurt so bad I couldn't. Then we tried again at 6 weeks and it still hurt but was do able. I had an apesiodamy (lol no idea on sp) so if you didn't rip or get cut you'll probably be fine. I felt normal again after 2 months. =

my dr said we could after 3 weeks, this is the only time I'd ever heard this before. I'd always heard 6-8 weeks your prefernce really, anyway we tried at 3 weeks. OUCH DON'T DO IT!!!!! it was awful. =

It's really up to you. If you take it easy the first time to make sure you don't cause yourself any pain. I had sex at 4 1/2 weeks, but it was uncomfortable to do anything more than straight, very slow sex. =

mother2five and kaitlyn.....
did you girls feel totally healed up I mean not sore at all when you tried for the first time again after having the baby? Just wonddering because I don't feel sore at all,no preessure or anything, I had my baby 4 weeks ago, but I am scared that I am not healed up as well as I feel. =

i'd wait however long your dr says. even if it's not painful, you don't want to get an infection =

My doctor told me we could whenever we felt comfortable with it -- that it didn't necessarily have to be 6 weeks. He also said that if we did before my 6 week check, it might make the exam a little easier. My baby's 2 weeks old, and I'm definitely getting the mental sex drive back, but it still hurts to think about actually doing anything! =

well in a couple days it'll be 5 wks since i had my daughter, but my fiancee and i tried having sex 1 1/2 wks ago and it was alright a bit uncomfortable so then we tried a couple days ago and im fine....i think it just depends on the person and how your pregnancy went... =

I had vaginal birth and am waiting but the doesn't mean no oral or fingering. You know the safe stuff we use to do, lol, well me anyway plus it fun to pretend your in highschool and all you can do is round 3rd base but never can reach that home plate.

Do it when your comfortable but enjoy other fun sexual things while you wait. Heck I am treating this like my period ..there is a no entry sign but you can come close with out breaking a entering .. =

I was so busy recovering and taking care of a newborn, I didn't even THINK about sex until 8 weeks! It is fine to start whenever you feel comfortable, just don't forget about birth control... =

Sorry some of the posts werent the nicest I just copied what was there. Also like you said, you CAN get prego very easily breastfeeding or not. Use protection.

I waited 5 weeks. The first couple months of doing it were fairly painful for me though. Just the first minute or so once we'd started. I had a lot of tearing and stitches though.

One of the biggest problems before six weeks can be blood clots. That is one other major reason. It can form in the uterus and go to the heart or brain. I know that most guys are very anxious, but just be patiet it really can be worth it. WAIT until your 6 week check.

my husband and I had sex 5 weeks after birth - we hadnt had sex in forever cause I carried the baby low and it hurt when we had sex when I was pregnant, so we were anxious!! But yea be careful about getting prego again - we have been using condoms every time (cause I dont want to get pregnant again anytime soon) but I am getting ready to get back on the pill cause condoms just become too much of a pain. If you feel that you are healing good, then I would say go ahead and go for it - I had a 3rd degree episiotomy and I was fine at 5 weeks, and probably would have been fine at 4 weeks........

I had sex 12 days after my 3rd baby was born. Looking back it probably wasnt the best idea, it didn't hurt but then I didnt really feel anything either. My doc told me when I had my eldest that they like you to 'try' having sex just before your 6 week check up so that you can give feedback at your check up on how you're feeling. If you're worried about getting preg use condoms.
