Hey everybody.. I need a little bit of women advice. I just had my 1st baby Jan. 26 2015! It's been a week and 2 days since me and my husband hadn't have sex. I stopped bleeding and I only had one tear , with no stitches. Is it safe for me to have sex now ?

No, don't have sex yet. You need to heal at LEAST 6 weeks (I think some docs will check after only 4, but standard here is 6) then check with your doctor to make sure it is okay.

Seriously? What did you OB tell you. 4-6 weeks? There's a reason for that. Your body is nowhere NEAR healed enough.

No. Your body is still healing. There is a reason why doctors say 6 weeks. Need to listen to that. There are plenty of other ways to be intimate.

What did your doctor say? Your body needs time to heal and you don't want to risk infection. Give it about 4-6 weeks.
