I recently delivered a healthy baby boy on March 7,2014. My 6wks are up on April 18 but my checkup is on wednesday 4-16-14. Labor and delivery went great, the only problem was a retained placenta. Two weeks after birth the bleeding slowed down alot and was a dark color. At week 3 my OB wanted me to start my birth control, which after that the bleeding picked up a little and is a light-medium pinkish-redish color. I have the urges (sensations) to have intersourse with my husband (whom by the way is feeling the same way). Is it alright to have intercourse with just 3 days left before the checkup? I'm on the pill (since 3-28-14) and I do have comdoms to use to prevent pregnancy and infections....I know I should know the answer to my own question, but every pregnancy is different and heals different from the last one.
