“After the baby is born, how soon I can have sex?” is again a common question being asked by the new moms.

👉🏻 While there’s no required waiting period before you can have sex again, many health care providers recommend waiting to have sex until four to six weeks after delivery, regardless of the delivery method.

👉🏻 The risk of having a complication after delivery is highest during the first two weeks after delivery. But waiting will also give your body time to heal.

👉🏻 In addition to postpartum discharge and vaginal tears, you might experience fatigue, vaginal dryness, pain and low sexual desire.

👉🏻 If you had a vaginal tear that required surgical repair, you might need to wait longer.

Talk to your doctor if you have any concerns, pains or troubles having sex after delivering your little one.
