Luckey4:I'm starting to think I'm a freak since its all I'm thinking about. Oh what to do.
Follow the advice of medical professionals, that's what. Your lady bits need time to heal.
Angela814:Ha ha. I haven't thought about anything more than sleep and finding time to eat yet.
mariamaria:I may be a prude, but I'm a big fan of following the advice of my dr. Even though I had a RCS and I don't really have trauma per se in my lady bits, my dr made it pretty clear that there is a risk of infection with anything all up in there and needing things to heal up. I'm only a week PP so maybe I'll change my mind as I feel better, but for now whatever my dr says is what I'll go with.
This. It's not necessarily advised for comfort, but from an infection standpoint. Where the placenta was attached to your uterus is essentially a wound that needs to heal.
randomosity:Heck yes I'm waiting. And probably will even beyond 6 weeks! The thought of attempting it makes me want to cringe.
This. I barely have time to eat, sleep, and shower. Sex doesn't even cross my mind.
These doors are closed until I am given the a-ok by the doc, whether I felt fantastic or not. I feel like shizzit.
I was told you should wait 4 to 6 weeks, depending on when you have your dr visit follow up and how you are generally healing.
I hate to admit that DH and I could only wait until 3 weeks. That being said, I have felt great since delivery and we were very careful.
