Can i have sex after 3 weeks of having a baby

Patient: Can i have sex after 3 weeks of having my baby. I had my baby on February 14,2015

 

 

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.Usually in case of vaginal delivery around 4 to 6 weeks of ab stinence is advised.Because it will take around 4 to 6 weeks for the vagina to come to its original state and for the healing of the local wounds.If you are not having any local discomfort you may have intercourse, but better to be careful.Hope this helps you.Take care.
