This has been on my mind a few days so I figured I might as well ask the people that will know! My doctor told me no sex, tampons, douching, anything for 2 weeks after my D&C just to keep out infections. Well, I have heard they say that because most people will still be bleeding for that length of time. I only bled for a day or so after my D&C, so with it being a week out now and no bleeding, do you think it's safe to have sex? My husband will be leaving again tomorrow to work out of town for a while and I would like to try one time before he leaves to get pregnant since they say you are more fertile after M/C...any idea?
Hi I wouldn't know sorry but didn't want to just read and leave (I had ERPC on Tuesday) no bleeding now but still got a "tummy ache". If I felt upto it I would love to with my OH. Even if it was just so we could feel the intimacy again (it seems like an eternity ago since.... sorry tmi) anyway, if you feel upto it then why not. Doctor didn't tell me not to just said to be careful and take precautions.
You will have read everything/all the posts I have on B&B they say we should wait after a mc, but at the end of the day, it's their advice and the doctors have to cover themselves professionally. It is human nature to do what we want when we want so in the end I guess it's your choice.
Take care. Good luck, love and happiness, whatever you decide.
I can only tell you what my Dr/Nurses told me as I am going thru the same situation myself. My D&C was only a few days ago, but the nurses and doctors were VERY atimit (sp? ) when they said that I should not have sex for at LEAST two weeks so the uterus can heal. She also said that we should wait AT LEAST three months before we have any unprotected sex. My OB/GYN told me to wait at least 2 months before trying again. She did say that I will be very fertile, but she also said there is a chance that the egg could implant in the "wounded" are and it is more likely we would end up right back where we were... We are very anxious to start trying again, but I think I am going to wait AT LEAST one cycle before we do... Just what I've been told. Sorry if it didn't help!
Don't worry, I feel your pain! Because I was spotting during my pregnancy my doctor told us no sex, so it was two weeks from the time I started spotting to the time that we found out we lost our munchkin. So now we have two more weeks to wait...one month, no sex, TOO LONG!!! Good luck to you!
Amos, the reason they say no sex for 2 weeks is becuase your cervix may be open slightly still and any sperm that gets in there is classed as a foreign body and can cause infection- which trust me u dont want, we had sex about 9 days after my last d and c but used a condom, purely for that reason. about 2 weeks and 4 days after we had proper sex hehe xxx
