20 week still born

Hello, I recently had a still born (last week monday morning to be exact) I am still bleeding, and having a lot of emotional distress. My doctor has not seen me since the day of the disaster. Should I be seen by an OB to make sure the surgery went okay, when can I start taking birth control, and when will my husband and I be able to make love again?

I am so sorry but I understand what you are going through. I went into labor four months early and I had my son on 11-21-10. He did not live due to his lungs not being develop. I had him vaginal without any medications. I did not see my OB until 1-4-11. Since it appears that you had surgery you may want to call your OB and set up an appointment to make sure eveything is going well. But after I had my son my OB told my hubby and I not to have sex until after my six weeks check up but I understand some people may have sex two weeks after birth or just when they are up to it. My OB asked me the other day if I wanted to take a form of birth control but i refused because I am ready to have another baby although my OB told me to give myself six months to try again. I know this is hard for you it is still hard for me bc I wanted my son soon bad but you will heal with time. I find that talking about how you feel at this time will help you. Stay encourage.
