My son is 2 weeks old, when is it safe to start having sex? Do I really have to wait 6 whole weeks?

I would wait until after your postpartum doc appt. just to be sure that you are completely healed. Your doc can also get you started on birth control. It would be very hard on you body to get pregnant this soon after giving birth.

My husband was kind anough to go google this for me, and gave me the info ever so casual one night...4 weeks the internet says, lol. I am waiting patiently for my 6 week checkup. If all is clear then we are "A for away"

I bet your good to go, we got back into it at 4 weeks..Just ease into it with lube(definately) and maybe a glass of wine to help those old nerves..;). Have fun!

i had my daughter about 2 weeks ago and me and my partner have had sex ova the past few days, it did hurt at first (felt like i was a virgin) but when i got into it, it was fine just had to take it easy the first time around. But i personally think it depends on how u feel and if u think ur ready to get back into it

I had m baby just over 5weeks ago by c section. I was told about 4-6 weeks but basically whenever you feel ready.

At 4 wks i thought i felt ready so my fiance and I tried but it was like I was a virgin again...it hurt soooo badly that i went to the doctors straight away to see if i had done any damage. She said that even tho i had a c section, the trauma of my labour will play an affect on how ready I am 'down there' and she has treated me with some cream as she said i seemed a bit 'red and sore looking' (probably from what i just tried to do haha) and said after using that for a week we can try again. We havent tried again yet but prob will soon...hopefully it works better this time around, i miss the intimacy of that part of the relatonship.

Good luck :)

my dr said that we only needed to wait 4 wks. i think that whenever you feel ready that its a sign that your body is probably giving you the ok.
