Most doctors recommend waiting about six to eight weeks after the baby is born to resume sex. However, as most people are different, even more so when it comes to sex, the waiting period after the baby is born varies from couple to couple.
For instance, some couples said that they waited for about eight weeks after the baby was born and then had sex about two to three times per month. Then there are other couples that just cannot wait that long and start having sex in the first month after the birth of their baby. Sex is first and foremost on many couples’ minds after the birth of their baby and look forward to being intimate with each other again.
There are a few things to take into consideration though, before resuming sex after your baby is born. First of all, having a new little person in your home really takes it out of you. It takes some time before home life gets into a comfortable routine, and sex has to fit in somewhere in between.
Then again, even though you might really be in the mood very soon after the birth, your body might not allow you to have sex because it is still healing. Having a new baby in the home will definitely be tiring for both you and your husband. Even if your baby is not so demanding, he still has to be fed every few hours at first and this is really exhausting.
