    how soon can you have sex after giving birth? I have read people saying they have 2 or 3 days afterwards, is it ok while you are still bleeding or do you need to wait for the blood to stop??

    I've never heard that 2-3 days is ok? Here the doctors recommendation is 6wks but I would say atleast until the bleeding stops. I don't think the 6wks is something you HAVE to wait because each time I went to my 6wk post partum visit they asked if we had yet and when I said yes it was fine lol. But I waited 4-5 wks with each.

    4 to 6 weeks is recommended depending on the type of bith you had. I had a c-section and was given the go ahead at my 4 week check-up.
