On Thursday 5th August, 2010 I gave birth to my second child via a scheduled c-section but I also had my tubes tied at the same time. My gorgeous fiance wants to have intercourse ALL the time. He's what society calls "a nymphomaniac" which basically means that he just likes to have sex alot. I knew this before we got together, so it wasn't a problem...until now!

I am legitimately afraid to have sex with him. There are a number of factors which makes this so but, I'm too embarassed to admit any of them to him. The biggest fear is "getting pregnant again" and then there's the "hurting" side of it. I'm afraid it'll hurt because it's been so long. Hence I've asked the question: WHEN IS IT CONSIDERED SAFE TO HAVE INTERCOURSE AFTER A C-SECTION AND TUBELIGATION???

The normal 6 weeks as long as you have your doctors ok. I had three c-sections and a tubal after my last and as long as you give your body that 6 weeks to heal then you should be fine. You should tell you partner though your fears of it hurting and ask him to be gentle with you at first to ease back into things. He should understand this considering you just had a major abdominal surgery. Hope you do alright

IF something happens before that time then just make sure and take things easy. After all your body is still in the healing process. (I know I didn't wait the entire 6 weeks after my second) but you have to make sure your health and safety are considered. Do not let your partner press you into doing anything you do not feel comfortable doing, also if you do get into anything and it is uncomfortable for you tell him! Men do not know what we do not say I am sure he will understand (my husband is the same way as far as his sexual appetite lol). Also note that Doctors only say nothing inside the vagina during this time there are other ways to gain sexual pleasure. ;)

six weeks or when your doctor say its ok i should say that i did break the rules i had 2 c-sections and had sex about a week after if there was any pain we stoped and waited a little longer there are other ways to meet his needs and when you are ready take it slow and use a position that gives you control over the depth and speed and there is no need to worry about getting pregnant again the only thing better then getting your tubs tied is not having sex at all and i know i couldn't do that but if you can think of a way to bottle up some of your man sex drive and send it to me for my fiancé i'ed really like that 1 or 2 times a week is not enough 7 sounds better really though i hope every thing works out ok for you good luck

I haven't been tied but I have had a C-section(well 2 ) and I was the one in a rush for sex. My Dr. told me that I could have sex once there was no more blood and no pain (surgery pain I assumed) that being said it did hurt a bit the first time but only due to breast feeding and the lack of lubrication from that. I hope this helps anyhow

Also tubals are immediatly effective although there is always the chance of getting pregnant again as there is with any birth control method next to never having sexual intercourse again. Just take it easy!

Tina, what can happen IF intercourse happens before that 6 week period??? I know I must sound stupid because this is my second c-section but intercourse wasn't a problem when I had my first child 4 years ago as I didn't have a partner...
