How soon after giving birth did you have sex?

I waited nine weeks. I was too scared to before then, but at nine weeks it didn’t hurt at all.

The second or third week, I can't remember. I was waiting until my bleeding stopped and the sutures had completely disappeared.

It was almost three months before we went back to sex as I waited for my stitches to have gone and until I had my first period.
