WARNING: Graphic post! I know a lot of 'proffesionals' say you should wait until your check up,or the 6 week mark...but I didn't...Guess what girls...I am ok! LOL Have been horny for a while which is unbelievable to me because not even 3 full weeks ago,I gave birth...however,I had no tearing,just grazing and although I have stopped bleeding for a few days now I was afraid it would hurt. So we were just fooling around (it was not planned,I had intended on waiting at least another week or so)and we kinda just attempted it,I was worried it would hurt and be like 'hotdog in a hallway' because...well I just had a baby.Almost worse for me than it hurting would be like feeding a tictac to a whale with no friction for him... Thankfully,for us both it did not feel like that,it felt really nice,although it was short and experimental more than anything.I think we will have to use lube/condoms though,I am not getting an IUD for a while and we are not going on the pill,but I just wanted to say,if your not torn/cut during birth,you CAN have sex,do not worry!Hubby is pretty large as well,so don't loose hope all those ladies who are afraid of having sex again.I am doing pelvic floor exercises everyday and when I pee's last night it stung a bit which made me think we should have waited a bit longer but today it's fine again and I have no soreness/pain. Anyway,sorry for the TMI post but I thought I'd document it for research purpouses and the sake of ladies who wonder..."how soon can you have sex after childbirth!"I'm sure I'm not setting any records but still.. Almost 3 weeks after the birth seems pretty soon to me.My friens who's a labour and delivery nurse told me,as long as you have not bled for 3 days in a row or more,it's ok.... Anyway...thats all!
