Dtd After C-Section

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.

Dtd After C-Section

Postby jodilynn » Mon Feb 08, 2010 1:49 pm

I had a csection 3 1/2 weeks ago and now I'm wondering when dh and I can dtd Bleeding is almost stopped and i've been healing great and am in no pain at all. So when us it ok to give it a go? Should I wait the full 6 weeks? If so why? I'm figuring sex is ok a little sooner then a vag delivery? Or am I wrong?

After my 1st c/s we waited 4 wks. This last time it was 5 wks, but more because of time than healing.

We tried around 3 1/2 weeks after mine, but it really hurt my incision, and my uterus area so we stopped :oops: Waited about another 2 weeks or so, and all was good to go, lol.

We dtd at 5 weeks, a couple days after bleeding stopped. Had a day of spotting after but everything was fine.

we dtd 11 days after mine. in my defense, the bleeding had stopped. it went fine, things felt sore deep inside, but not awful.

if you are still bleeding, then you still have an open sore in your uterus where your placenta was and you risk infection with dtd.

definitely wait until all bleeding has stopped. then go very slow, use lots of lube, and listen to your body - if it hurts, wait and try again.

yeah make sure the bleeding has stopped. I think 4 days with out blood is consitered stopped. I made that mistake and ended up just starting to bleed all over again. took me till 7 weeks to stop totally. Other then that its all about if you feel comfortable.

My dh and I dtd 3 1/2 weeks after my C-Section, but my bleeding had completely stopped and I wasn't sore at all. We just took it nice and slow and easy and also used condoms...remember you're most fertile after birth!!
