I had sex a month & 2 weeks after giving birth! Should I have waited to see my doctor so she could tell me it was ok? which is in one more week. I been thinking about it a lot lately, some people told me you could bleed to death, is this true? need HELP!

We tried really hard to wait the 6 weeks for my check up, but we made it 4 lol. I'm still here to tell the tale, so I guess bleeding to death isn't entirely accurate.

A month and 2 weeks IS six weeks BTW. Usually you should wait until you are cleared by your doc, but once again, you waited 6 weeks and should be fine. Schedule your check up. AND once again, birth control.

You should be fine, but it is recommended to wait 6 weeks to heal. Just be sure to use protection so you do not fall pregnant to soon.

Sounds like that was between 5-6 weeks if you were comfortable with it then its good. As for the heaver monthly same here unless you are going through 1 pad every hour you should be fine.
