DC Question — The Bump
Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

DC Question

My procedure was on Tuesday. My question is, how long did your doctor say you had to wait until you were able to resume having sex with your husband? I plan on taking her advice regardless, but was surprised at how long she said we had to wait.

Re: DC Question

  • I had mine on tues also. They told me 6 weeks. Seems like a long time to me especially since I've been on pelvic rest the last 6 weeks. I'm just ready to get my life back.
    Fucking bump!!!!
  • I forgot to ask my Dr after my dnc. I had a post op appointment 4 weeks later and he said all was fine.
    Honestly for the first few weeks neither of us wanted to have sex so it was ok with us.

    I would go with what your Dr said.

  • Well, yes I am planning on following the doctors advice, just like I said. I was curious because I have heard different things, and like PP just want my life to go back to normal. It is hard to have my life changed in yet another way for a long period of time.

  • my dr and midwife both said i can resume sex whenever i feel comfortable. DH and I had sex the day after the D&C and everything has been fine.

  • Mine said 2 weeks to give my body time to recover and for the cervix to close to avoid infection.  Tomorrow it will be exactly 2 weeks, but we are going to wait until after my follow-up appointment on Friday just to be on the safe side!
