Post subject: a few questions on life after giving birth
Posted: Fri Sep 02, 2011 10:55 am
Hi hun , Congrats on the birth of your LO
With my first i bled for around 4-5 weeks i was in agony for about a week after too cos i tore badly. With my 2nd i had an episiotomy and the recovery was so much better and quicker I only bled for 2 days when i asked the mws about it they said i was lucky.
Everyone is different tho, Are you still bleeding heavily?
I waited for just over 5 weeks before having sex and at that my hubby had to be gentle. I was prob being over cautious tho as i was fine. Hope this helps xxx

thanks for the replies so far,
charlene no the bleeding is light now, it has stopped for a few hours a few times but its still a pinky colour. With the sex my OH is getting pretty fustrated lol and its only been 2 and a half weeks, im not sure either of us can wait another 2 and a half weeks. The tears on the outside are just about healed We did try the other day but it was definatly too early xxx

I bled for 3 weeks, but the last week was quite light. I had an episiotomy (sp) but the stitches were internal, and i was told i could have sex after 2 weeks, we did id after i stopped bleeding so around 3-4 weeks.
but i still got sore if it was too rough, or i wasnt lubricated enough (tmi) or we had it too often
