Is it okay to have sex two weeks postpartum?

I had my son a little over a week ago. I had no stitches or tearing and pushed him out in one push is it wrong to feel ready for sex any other women who were ready almost or 2 weeks in?

You have a huge dinner plate wound in your uterus your best to wait so you dont get an infection in the worst case

You have an open wound inside you. A huge one, where the placenta was attached. That’s why sex is really a no no

Absolutely not. You are healing whether you feel great or not! Give your body the 6 weeks to properly heal please.

It’s not wrong but keep in mind your uterus is a giant open wound. Dr’s tell you to wait 6 weeks while you are healing especially to avoid infection.

Risk of infection is extremely high. You have a a huge wound where your placenta was attached. It’s best to wait but ultimately it is your decision. Your muscles should heal, birth is a big thing. But for me personally i did not want to risk getting an infection or pregnant. I waited until I was cleared by my doctor to have sex. And will do the same for our second

Your cervix is not fully closed from my understanding and it can lead to serious infections.

I had a baby at 24 weeks. Went to a PP check up at 2 weeks and the doctor said it was okay to have sex, so we did and I ended up with an infection. I wouldn’t do that again, even if you aren’t bleeding, it really isn’t worth that risk.

I had sex 2 weeks after my daughter because I felt ready and the bleeding had stopped, with my soon who was c section we had to wait 6 weeks for me to heal internally. Talk to your dr x

I had sex 2 weeks PP after my 2nd baby and everything went fine other than the fact I was pregnant again at my 6 week check up :rofl::weary: they’re 4 and 5 years old now.

You have to wait, maybe not the full 6 weeks. You could try at 5 but you have to remember you literally pushed a baby out! Hell even at 6weeks for me I had pain trying to have sex and we waited two months and than I was fine to go. I get it you may want sex like right now but you could just enjoy pleasing your man or hell just make out and enjoy just that. We all recommend waiting 6 weeks though! Better safe than sorry

You would be putting yourself at risk for a terrible infection

Unpopular response. My husband and I are very sexually active and were sexually actively again 2 weeks after I had our daughter. I never ended up with infection at all but I know that is a possibility.
