    So... it's been almost 5 weeks since I gave birth to my twins vaginally. I couldn't wait any longer. My husband travels all week for work and I miss him so much, so we had sex this morning.

    Is that okay? The doc did cut me and I did have stitches. Sex didn't really hurt, but it felt dry and a little stretchy. We used lube and a condom, and I took a bath afterward.

    Anyone else have sex before they were "supposed" to?

    Hey thanks! It really wasn't fun :wacko: but in the end it was worth it. Better than a c-section! :winkwink:

    I had both my son and twin girls vaginally and was far more damaged by my son. Didnt stop us from having sex 5 weeks after having him though and I had 36 stitches! Waited 7 weeks to do it after my twins though, just because I was tooooo tired to want to - I'm amazed you'd want to - your husband is a lucky man!!

    If you used lube and you feel alright, I don't see why there would be a problem x

    Congrats on having your twins vaginally!!!

    I had sex 2 weeks PP. Its whenever you feel your ready. As long as you didn't feel pain, I don't see the problem.

    Here in Japan the post partum check is at 1 month rather than 6 weeks and we get the go ahead then, so I'm sure you're good to go as well! :thumbup:

    I think it's fine as soon as you feel ready!
    I actually feel ready for it myself (2 weeks after a vaginal birth) but I'm still bleeding so can't just yet. Actually both me and hubby are craving it a bit :blush: despite the tiredness!

    My LO was born 3 weeks ago & we DTD last night for first time, bleeding stopped about a week ago or else we wouldn't have done it, didn't feel any pain at all, slight discomfort but thats to be expected, apart from that it was great. I only had one small tear.
