You won't be able to get pregnant 9 days after giving birth. If you use the pill they recommend going back on it 21 days after labour. It's probably ok as long as you arent putting too much strain on your scar. I would get some contraception sorted if I was you though
Must say I'm thrilled to hear that some people feel up to sex so soon after an ELCS- I'm booked in for one in a couple of weeks' time and bracing myself for a long slow recovery. Great to hear it's not always the case! DH and I haven't done the deed in ages (I got completely weirded out at our last attempt when I could feel both my husband and son moving around inside me) and he's been very understanding about it, but looked seriously crestfallen when I warned him it might be another couple of months post surgery!
I've actually been wondering about this. At what point is orgasm safe? The leaflet the hospital gives you mentions penetrative sex but not orgasm. It seems risky because it causes contractions and won't that rip internal stitches?!
The reason you’re supposed to wait several weeks is that you have a big open wound where your placenta detached, no matter whether you had a vaginal delivery or c section. This means you’re at very high risk of infection. I also wouldn’t want to put too much pressure on stomach muscles and a uterus that have been cut through and restitched.
I would definitely wait at least three more weeks before you do it again (it’s meant to be 6!) and keep an eye out for any signs of infection (Pain, increased bleeding, discharge with an odour etc). I had an infection after my c section (not from sex, didn’t have any of that for months!), and it was really serious.
