Sex After Giving Birth?
MOST HELPFUL POSTS

Most physicians and the AMA recommend a period of 6-8 weeks with no penetration. In order to allow time for healing and muscle tone to return. You can be intimate in other ways if you desire, but actual intercourse "off the menu" for 6 weeks unless your doctor has cleared you. While some women will not conceive while breastfeeding, it is not foolproof and you should always assume you are fertile unless you or your partner is sterile.

Some suggest you dont, some suggest you try so that if theres pain, you can talk to the appropriate doctor about it. If youre scared or anxious at all... Definitely wait. If you're ready... Good for you. If there is pain, stop.
