Tried at around 5 wks, wasn't comfortable even with a c-section. It's been 9 months since my son was born and we have had only had sex about 5 times. Don't feel pressure, do it when you want too and only when you feel like it. I have talked to and many of my friends, can't be bothered or don't really feel like it. Sometimes it's hard too with your new role as a mom.

with the first one we waited a little over 2 weeks (my husband didn't want to wait that long) and it hurt the first few times. I had had a small tear with the first one.
with the second one, we waited 3 weeks and it didn't really hurt that much (i did not have a tear the second time)
i know the doctors say 6 weeks because of risk of infection, but ....

I think your supposed to wait about 6 weeks but I dont think we did for about 8 weeks after, I was too sore and knackered to even think about it before then but I have friends who struggled to wait the 6 weeks so everyones different x

they recommend 6 weeks for vaginal birth so the cervix and vagina has a chance to return to normal - No matter how clean your guy is there is bacteria he has on him that can cause infecction in the area due to your hormones not being normal and back to"self cleaning "mode

With my first, I had a small tear, but was quite sore, so it was about 8 weeks, but with my second, it was an easy birth, and I waited about 3 weeks and was quite comfortable. It really is a personal decision based on your circumstances.
