I gave birth 4 weeks ago. I didn't tare or need any stitches. Is it okay to have sex?

No matter how good you feel, your doctor need to clear you for intercourse. If you had a c-section your vagina would not be affected but the rest of your reproductive track is not recovered. There are other activities you can do besides intercourse.

No. You are still healing. Just because you didn't tear does not mean you are ready to have sex. If you are that desperate maybe see if you can schedule your dr appointment early. 2 weeks isn't going to kill you to wait.

The other ladies have said it all. Use your hands or he can use his own.

Rather wait and dont risk anything. If hubby is going on about having sex tell him to wait. And like the others have said,you can do otherthings,it doesnt have to be intercourse.

Well, do you want to potentially damage your body?

There's a reason for that 6 week period. Your body just went through hell and back to forcefully push that child through the birthing canal into this world.

As others have said, pleasure can be obtained without sexual penetration, and I'd recommend that.
