How soon is to soon to have sex after having a D done
I was at 15 weeks when I had my d n c. since I didn’t wait the 2 weeks I’m bleeding and I don’t kno if I should go to er or nike store not. I guess my body wasn’t as ready as it was telling me I was. Anything helpful would be much appreciated. In addition being that I did a really dumb thing by not waiting I do not suggest any other woman to disobey their doctors!!!!!! Seriously this is really frightening listen to your docs!
I am in the same boat so I totally understand your question. My doc suggested to wait 6 weeks. I go for a post op at 4 weeks, so I am going to ask the doc again. and hopefully we will be good to go. I don want to mess anything up. I already have two healthy children and we love to have more.
I am so glad you nike store posted this question because I have read online to wait anywhere from 1 3 weeks and then use protection (to fight against infection). So I was extremely surprised (and disappointed) when my doc said to wait 6 weeks. [I was 10 weeks when I had the D My doc had wanted me to have it at 8 weeks but I wasn ready; at 8 weeks he said I only have to wait 3 4 weeks to have intercourse again.]
I miss my husband on the sexual level deeply but I agree the risk is not worth it; we can wait another 2 weeks for the doc appointment to ask again! Thank you for your post!!!
I also had a D and I had sex about 3 weeks after. If you are going to have sex afterward make sure you protect yourself because you doctor is mainly concerned about infection and pregnancy before you are fully healed. Keep all of your doctors appointments and keep a watch out for you period. I would say if you are going to do it wait atleast 4 weeks.
I also have a comment for munchkin_kids_downunder. All the lady nike store wanted to know is how soon is to soon . she did not ask for you punk A commen nike store ts about her reproductive system. Her choice to have sex is hers and hers alone and how dare you give her such a horrible response . if you could not respond any better than that then you should not have responded at all.
