Sex after D and E
Feb 13, 2006
How long do you have to wait? D and E was on Wednesday night. We would be using both Yasmin (took my first pill last night) and Condoms (condoms for the first 30 days for backup plus to reduce risk of infection after procedure).

I never saw the Dr after the procedure (even though he promised to be there) and his office doesn't return phone calls (no exaggeration - you have to just keep calling and hope you reach someone) so I don't have anyone to ask.

After having my first child I remember waiting 3 weeks but discovering I should have waited a bit longer (it was uncomfortable still) and with my second child my marriage was failing so we didn't even try for 8 weeks so I don't really have any past experience to base it on either.

Do you think two weeks is ok? Or 4? Or do we have to treat it like a birth and wait 6 weeks?
I'm sorry for your loss. I had a D&C back in Dec. My Dr. said it was o.k. as long as I was't bleeding anymore. For me was about 2 1/2 weeks because My Dr did a horrible job! But that's a whole nother story! But after that, about 3 weeks post, we had sex a few times, with a condom (to prevent infection) It was a bit uncomfortable the first few times, though. But, everyone's different.
I hope this helps.
