Silly question to ask but I must!

So I just had a baby 21 days ago and just waiting for my six week mark to see my obgyn. I only have 3 more weeks to go! Any ways my question is this did any of you ladies waited to have sex after the six week period or did it take months to get back into action?  This might be tmi but I still give my husband ******** and we make out but he's not really allow to touch me around the private areas because I had stitches. We just mostly kiss and he just get lucky lol. Sorry I Know tmi! The thing is while we do our messing around I don't get horny like before. Is it because I'm still in that stage that my mind is saying hey you just had a baby I don't want sex. Would My Sex Drive EVER COME Back.

Sex drive will come back, your body has just been through a lot. Give yourself a chance to recover.

My fiancé and I had sex 2 weeks after I had my baby its when you feel ready to have sex and I to had stitches just be careful and don't have rough sex lol and it is safe to wait 6 weeks as this does give you a full recovery but when I had sex I was heal faster it all depends on your body but if you have sex now or ready for sex go for it can't nobody tell you what bad or what its your body oh and congrats on your baby

Just remember if you do have sex use protection as your the most fertile after having a baby, even if ur still bleeding a little. Unless u want babies close lol

I had my son June 29th 2015.  I was ripped 4th degree and was super weak for 2 weeks. I had sex in August after 6wks was up and got on birth control in September .
Was feeling super sick but didn't think anything of it. Got another depo shot December 1st and was getting really sick that day so I took a test later on.
It was positive. Got a blood test done and they said I was around 4-5wks pregnant.
My first ultrasound was in January and ya know, I was expected to be around 9 wks. Once I looked at the screen that was no 9wk fetus. The ultrasound lady said "how far are you suppose to be" I said "well from what they told me probably 9wks but that's a big baby" she said "well you are around 20wks". I got pregnant in August and I'm due May 27th.
