*did it hurt?
YES! For me it did. We tried at six weeks and I was very uncomfortable and we had to stop. I did tear during during delivery so that probably was a part of the reason.
*How long you wait before doing it again? We tried at 6 weeks, and the again at 7 or 8 weeks. The second time we tried it was uncomfortable but ok. Each time after it got easier and easier.
*Any suggestions on what to do with partner (that is safe) before we're able to do intercourse? Nothing for us. Too exhausted from lack of sleep I could have cared less, dh may have cared but he knew I just had a baby and didn't really start asking till 6 weeks pp.
*If we're stitched, will we need to go to ObGyn to get the stitched clear? (have no idea:S) no I didn't
*Will breastfeeding decrease your libido and hormonal changes etc? Honestly can't remember. But I think having a baby in general decreased my libido.
*How about leaking bOObies?!? Not much of an issue for us
*Did you and partner went solo before able to do it again? I didn't, not sure about dh but we were both solo tired so I'm thinking no.
*Do we need to start contraceptive right after? (even when we breastfeeding and haven't gotten menstrual cycles yet? At your 6 week pp check up your dr. Should encourage it/offer it.
