How long should I wait to have sex after after giving birth?

If you are wondering how long to wait before having sex for the first time after giving birth, here are some answers:

  • Lochia is the blood loss that follows childbirth and lasts anywhere from 3 weeks to 1 or 2 months, depending on the woman. It is recommended that you wait until it stops.
  • Your hormone levels drop after giving birth, this can cause a lack of desire for 2 or 3 weeks.
  • There is no hurry, even if it is important not to neglect your couple and important to spark desire again.
