Sex after D&C

I just want to ask if this is ok?, I had D & C done on the March .22 and the doctor told us to wait for 2 weeks to have sex, but it happened faster. It was only a week and 2 days. Is this is okay? Did anybody do that faster then doctor tells???

I had a partial dnc and our doctor advised us to wait to concieve (conceive) to mourn the loss of the baby but other than that he didn't say no sex. Within a couple of days we had decided to ttc and resumed sex and it did me no harm. As long as it was not painful and felt right then I don't think it should be a problem.

My husband and I waited about 1 week after the D&C.  It didn't seem to cause any problems.

My dr said wait until follow up to be sure cervix was closed. It was and she said was ok for sex then. That was a week after d&c. If cervix is still open can get an infection.

my doctor advised me to wait two full weeks as it takes that long for the cervix to completely close. the reason for no sex is you can introduce foreign substances into there and get a life and/or fertility threatening infection. that being said i had no problem waiting two weeks.

well, i had an uncompleted dnc and had to go for a second procedure after 6days and had sex two days later.
we had been off for well over a month cos i started spotting abt 3weeks before the first procedure.

Hi my name is Adrianna I went vacation to cancun for my 21st bday and a day after that I had to get a d&c prodecure. I cant stop thinking about it i was suppose to be 17 weeks but the baby's heart beat stop at 14 weeks. They induced my labor and I had a d&c procedure right after. He was a little boy. we waited 5 days and then had sex. Has anyone done that or had it sooner? The doctor said we had 2 weeks but I just couldnt  seemed to wait it help with the mourning process. I was to send out my thoughts and prayers to those who all have been through this difficult procedure. May our little ones rest in peace.

They tell you that because you have a high chance of causing an infection. Try to hold out. It's only two weeks, and I'm sure it would be harder on you guys if you had to go back into the hospital for something silly like an infection that could have been prevented.

Sorry this is long
Well, too be honest it seemed hard grieving after my MC&being around my fiancé without sex..so bout 5 days after my d&c we had sex..I bled alittle so then the next day there was no bleeding on the 7th day I bled again. And I just took the ibuprofen for cramps instead of my lortabs&im thinking that's another reason for bleeding again&because my body. So this morning I had a couple small clots but no cramps...so I believe its just the whole process of the lining, timing, and how careful yu are when doing it..if it hurts me I stop, or if I feel uncomfortable. If anything major yes calling yer gyno would be a good idea I think :) &yes adrixherz may em Rest peacefully we'll be with them in time<3
