Postpartum sex?

Re: Postpartum sex?

  • My appointment is at 4 weeks PP instead of 6 weeks like it was before. Not sure why, but assuming I'll be cleared then?

  • I haven't seen my doctor for a follow up visit. But when I was discharged, the nurse told DH and I to have sex prior to my PP check up because that's what my practice requests.

  • I actually had my pp appt at 2 weeks. They said everything was on track and as soon as I stopped bleeding we could go for it. We did it last night for the first time. I will be 5 weeks pp tomorrow. It was actually enjoyable at the time, but I was sore afterwards.

  • I bleed on and off still. 25 days of having a period is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo annoying.

  • My doctor told me she thought I'd be cleared at 4 weeks, but clearly we are waiting until our PP appointment before we take any action. 

    And @bellamatson I hear ya! With my first I bled for 5 weeks PP and it was dreadful.  Hoping your bleeding stops soon!

    Really? I have never heard of this. I wonder why they would want you to have sex before your check up?

    The nurse said it had to do with letting the OB know if you were experiencing pain or other issues with sex.

    UGH.

    I can already predict I won't be wanting to have sex for a long time, but if I had to before the PP appointment, well.. that appointment wouldn't be happening for a while. ;)

  • We dtd for the first time today (5weeks2days) and it hurt a little but nothing unbareable. Basically I felt like a huge whale flopping around though. It was definitely for DH, not me.

  • My doctor cleared me at 4 weeks, said I looked completely healed, just to use condoms till I get my mirena in.




  • Fingers crossed that I won't be cleared for a long LONG time. The tingling sensation in my bottom is enough to ward me off of any sex until I become deluded enough to think I want another baby.

    Back on topic: I was told to DEFINETLY wait for my six week appointment to be cleared but that may have more to do with excessive tearing rather than standard procedure.
