Re: if you had no tearing/stitches

  • We DTD at 6 weeks. It wasn't too painful, aside from the unusual dryness, but that's common PP. The most awkward part was the fountains of milk spraying out of my breasts haha.

    Not to burst your bubble, but it's quite uncommon for a FTM to have no tearing.

    The six week wait on sex is not about your vagina, it's about your uterus. There's an open wound where the placenta detached, and putting anything in your vagina during the time it's healing puts you at risk for infection.

    I don't understand how you burst her bubble if her baby is already born? Ticker in the siggy... And of the five friends I have that have kids, none of us tore. So, it might not be as uncommon as you think.

    Kegels, and baby oil/vegetable oil mix during crowning kept me from tearing twice.

    This. I had stitches but they were dissolved long before 6 weeks pp. My OB told me no sex/tampons because my uterus needed to heal and it reduces risk of infection to wait.  



  • I'm a ftm that did not have any tearing or stitches either. We had sex at 6 weeks and didn't have any pain or discomfort. 

     If anything it felt better. DH really stepped up his game.

    Honestly, it may depend on your husband's size.  With my first child and my first husband, it was 4 1/2 weeks.  However I stopped PP bleeding at 2 weeks.  My doctor just said whenever I felt ready, but I had not heard at that time to wait the full 6 weeks due to infection.  This time around, second child, second husband.  He is significantly larger and it hurt a lot more.  The first time was at 6 weeks PP, but I would say it is "back to normal" around 12 weeks PP.  I didn't have any tearing either time.

  • Honestly it still hurts (4 1/2 months pp). Not bad, but enough to make it not-so-enjoyable. 
  • Yep. FTM and no tearing. Awesome midwife, massage, and oil. :

    LOL thank you... It may be "uncommon", but it does happen. It was one of the first questions I asked after he was born "did I tear?"  and luckily, I did not. I am not asking for permission to have sex, I am just asking how comfortable/uncomfortable ppl were afterwards. I understand about infections ETC ETC.
