Let's be honest, ladies because I need honesty!

How long did you wait to DTD after giving birth? When you did it, did it really hurt?

I know they recommend 6 weeks but I'm 3 weeks out & I feel like I'm ready, but I'm completely terrified! lol I didn't have any tearing or stitches down there, but I'm not sure if there's a reason to wait the full 6 weeks that I'm missing?

We tried to DTD at 3 weeks PP, but I was seriously so terrified that I couldn't relax. We tried to "get it in" and I was just too sore. We ended up actually DTD at 4 weeks PP with just a little sensitivity. My OB had to cut me pretty bad though so get her all the way out.

I don't even remember how long we waited..pretty sure it was at least 6 weeks. I was nervous and tense, but it didn't hurt. Was a little sore though.

I'm not much help since we didn't DTD until about 10 weeks because he was gone that whole time. By then I was completely healed up and it was great lol.

Probably 8 weeks with my vaginal. I couldn't imagine that area being used before then.
About 6-7 weeks with my c-section, mainly because I bled forever.

With the first c-section I think we waited about 3 weeks. We were really bad after Dominic, I think we waited 10 days or something like that. It didn't hurt but we obviously had to take it easy because of the incision. There is a reason they recommend waiting, the thingy that opens up and causes the bleeding needs time to heal and if you do it earlier I think the risk of infection is higher (or something like that?)

Long time with Sarah. 12 days with James, two weeks with Daniel and 11 days with Keelan.

It wasn't that bad.

If you feel ready, go for it. Be prepared to call it off though, I remember it hurt. Also I agree with the infection thing. Use a condom to prevent fluids travelling past your cervix. That could cause some serious problems!
Have fun, maybe use some lubrication too!

I won't say, because my first birth was an extreme case.

So long as you feel ready, then I would say go for it. Make sure hubby knows there is no commitment to it though! If you feel like backing out at the last second he has to accept that! Lube, lube, lube! It will make it much easier.

With my first daughter, 4 weeks. It wasn't too bad, and by 6 weeks was fine.

With the twins....16 months lol.
