I do agree that we should wait at least 5 to 6 weeks after having a baby I waited 5 weeks, but everyone heals a lot different I felt fine after my first week and I had a c-section,but I knew I may not have been all the way healed internally so I made sure I waited a few weeks longer.

Jeepers, I could not for months after - too sore as tore. When we eventually did it was too painful so waited another 3 months. Your body does need to heal after such an event as child birth. My man is still waiting for me 2 years later we never seem to have time to have sex, and always feel too tired!

I did.. I had stitches internally, plus I was afraid of how painful it would be after the experience my body had just gone through.. My husband had no problem waiting.. In fact I think he was a little apprehensive too.. Also I had my Mirena placed in at my 6 week appt., so we wanted to make sure we had plenty of birth control options in place.

i totally agree with everyone saying at least after 6 weeks.if you have a husband who loves you,he will have to wait,till your body has fully recovered.bear in mind that we as women we did a great&a big job in giving birth.if some men out there,who cant wait,i tell you,that they are foolish.good luck.reme,just try&explain the situation to your hubby,im sure he will understand&you wont loose him.

We waited closer to 7 weeks after the births of both our boys. For one thing (especially after the 1st baby) I physically couldn't do it. Another thing, you are mentally & emotionally drained after having a baby & then with that 2nd baby you're pouring everything into 2 people & trying to be a good wife all at the same time. I needed the time to heal & be in the right frame of mind in every way possible. And, I have a man that has no problem with waiting. He actually understood the fact that a BABY had just come out of me!!! You will know when you are ready, just don't rush it :)

I waited longer than that! But then again my husband had to deploy back to Iraq 2 weeks after our daughter was born. So it was like 8 months till I had sex again.lol. I agree with jennifer if your man won't wait he doesn't love you. he needs to understand why you have to wait. and chikodi if you doctor didn't tell you to wait at least 6 weeks you need to find a new doctor!
You'll know when you feel ready. Some women are ready a few weeks after giving birth. For others, six weeks might seem too soon. You can still be intimate with your husband without having intercourse. If he's a good man, he'll be patient and faithful until you're ready and able.

Who ever said you wait for six weeks after child bearing before having sex is not a professional. Sex is one thing a man cant wait for a moment for. If you try, you are at rest of looseing your man to another opportunist. Be wise lol.
