Thank you for your question. We would advise waiting at least six weeks after your c-section before engaging in any sexual activity. Once you follow up with your ob/gyn who see if your incision has healed adequately, and have any external staples/sutures removed, you may proceed as tolerated. If you develop any severe lower abdominal pain, please refrain from sexual activity or any strenuous physical activity until after you have this examined by your doctor.
We hope AskTheDoctor.com has addressed your concern.
