Hello! I just gave birth 2 weeks ago today. I didn't have any complications and only tore a little bit on the inside & it only required 1 stitch. I literally was able to wipe myself with toilet paper immediately after giving birth & didn't once have to use that squirt bottle. That's how minor the stitch was. Lately I've been so emotional and missing my fiancé, even though we live together and I see him everyday after work. I think it's because sex is of such importance in my relationship. I know not everyone believes in sun signs, but I am a Scorpio, meaning I'm naturally very sexual. I've heard a lot of moms say that they were able to have sex within just 2 weeks of giving birth and I feel ready! I hardly feel sore down their at all, I don't feel unattractive because I've pretty much already lost all of the weight I gained from pregnancy, but I'm still bleeding. Not real heavy, but bleeding nonetheless. Should I wait until the bleeding stops to have sex? & I know it's really easy to get pregnant, I've already scheduled an appointment to have an IUD put in. I just wanted some advice from other mommies who are struggling with the no sex thing!
