    Default Sex after giving birth

    Hi ladies,
    Just wanting to know how long other people waited to DTD after giving birth? and was it painful.
    DD1 I didnt DTD for over a year(was single mum) so never thought about it post birth.
    DD2 is 2 weeks old and my partner and I are struggling to keep our hands off each other. I had no stiches or grazes, all bleeding has stopped and im not bruised or sore at all, sorry possible TMI.
    Guess i am wanting to see how long other people waited as a rough idea when we could possible DTD again.

    TIA

    I waited two or three weeks after my first and it was all sorts of agony. So damn painful I can remember that pain more than the pain of childbirth.

    Can't remember how long after my second.

    I bled for about 4-6 weeks after both kids so after then.

    You should be ok but my advice is to take it easy and make sure your partner/hubby is VERY gentle. Even though I had to wait over a month it was still tender.

    Other then that, enjoy! :-)

    After 10 weeks for us i think. I didn't bleed for ages but wasn't comfortable with the idea.

    DD1 about 3 weeks

    DS 6 weeks

    DD2 she is 4 weeks old and we still haven't done it. I was up for it last weekend, but started to get terrible back pain so not in the mood at the moment!
