C Section after induction question

I was induced and labored for 24hours before my c section. My question is, how long did you wait to resume being intimate with your DH? Its still going to be awhile since I am still bleeding but that is the only thing hold us back right now...

Most docs say 6 weeks minimum or once you feel up to it. I personally had issues with dryness and extreme pain caused by hormone changes from the birth of both of my children. You will want to take it slow and use a lubricant, regardless of if you think you need it or not, it just helps.

I hope that helps some, the best thing is to only proceed when you feel up to it.

I think everyone is different. We waited for awhile with my first and the full 6 weeks with my second. It wasn't the C section so much as the hormones and needing extra, extra, extra lube from the BFing that was hard for me. I don't think I was ever back to normal down there until I got pregnant again... LOL!

We will most definataly wait until I'm not bleeding... but it sucks... though I have no idea when we will ever find the time. DH works two jobs....

We waited (both times) until our girls slept through the night...so around 3 months.
