Hello, I'm just interest in opinions I know the best advice is doctors but just want other women opinions. I am 27 just had my second baby, vaginal delivery no stitches (smaller baby). I had my 3 year old and had one stitch. I know it's best to wait at least 6 weeks before intercourse again but foreplay and playing without penetration ok? Also would it matter if you had stitches or not for your vagina to go back to normal? (Or any personal suggestions that helped, ex. Kegel's). Thanks for your Advice and opinions.

Good lord, I'm envious already, and my childbearing ended 17 years ago! LOL Congrats on the excellent birth, Shari!

That being said, um...my doc always said I'd know when ready. And he was right...LOL...foreplay and non penetration are always ok, as far as I'm concerned. Just be very careful of the penetration stage, because you don't want to set back recovery!

I'm no help on the "with or without" stitches question...LOL...as both of my boys were larger babies, so I ended up with stitches both times. (thus the reason I'm envious already...LOL)
