When can I have sex after my baby is born?

ANSWER

In general, you can resume sexual activity between 4 and 6 weeks after delivery. Your doctor may recommend that you wait until after your first postpartum doctor appointment before having intercourse with your partner. That's typically at about 6 weeks.
