: I had my baby 3weeks ago, and I feel great. I have heard that you are suppose to wait 6weeks before you get back into intercourse, but I also know many people who were back into it a week after having their babies.
: My problem is that I had an episiotomy, and even though I feel "back to my old self" I'm afraid its not just going to hurt, but maybe mess up whats already healed. I dont know! Maybe those of you who have been through this can help me out.
: Thank you!!
It is better to wait until 6 weeks even though practically no one does, especially if you had an episiotomy. It will be painful and can cause bleeding and infection. I would wait until you are completely healed.
Hope this helps.
