Question about sex

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

Question about sex

Postby Lori05 » Wed Nov 18, 2009 7:58 pm

My poor hubby wants to have sex so bad! We have not had sex in MONTHS! We both (especially him) had no interest in sex while I was pg...I think it weirded him out.
Anyway, my question is, do we have to wait until our 6 week check up to have sex? I feel all healed, and have not had any pain in like a week. Not that he is pushing me to do, I am the one who is totally wanting sex in a bad way! lol

Sorry this is so blunt....but I am just wondering what the rest of you think.

I think it all depends on how you are feeling. When you are ready to DTD go for it. I think we only waited a couple of weeks if that. When I was not sore anymore we were right back to it. So if you feel like it go right ahead. Have fun lol

Like you, it had been a while. We finally DTD @ 3w2d PP. I had a second degree tear from delivery. Ended up ripping a stitch (granted TMI we didn't have very "gentle" sex). The doctor laughed at me, said she saw a couple of women a week for this, but warned if skin tore that I'd have to be rehospitalized as stitching down there isn't something they can do in office.

I'd say if you're feeling ready then go for it, but take it very very very slow and use lotsa lube! I was surprised how good it felt. Was thinking it was going to hurt like hell!

I had 2 first degree tears and stopped bleeding at 4 1/2 weeks PP, but we both wanted to wait until we got the all clear from my OB at 6 weeks. Once we did, we dtd but it was quite uncomfortable for me and afterward I felt like I had a dozen small papercuts inside and spotted quite a bit that night and the next day. We haven't dtd again since and I'm now 8 weeks PP.
