Sex after C-Section

Hi, I wasnt sure which bored to post this on so I will try here.. Does anyone know how long your supposed to wait before you have sex again after a C-Section? And is it painful?

I think it's about 6 weeks, it was with my last one. But it might vary by person. Not really sure.

It's 6 weeks. Just like with a vaginal birth. It didn't hurt that much for me but it is recommended that you use lubricant to help things out.

I agree w/ walnuts mom, using a lubricant will really help. And we waited about 6 weeks or so. It didn't hurt me at all. But it did take some getting used to.
