Good day doc
Please could you tel me how long after my c-section can I start to go to the gym again. And how soon can we have intercourse again?

It' s been 5 weeks now and I feel wonderful.

You can start slowly with walking and see how your body responds. Lifting weights should come last. You should not have sex till after your 6 week check-up.

Hi,

you make me feel so excited... 5 weeks and you feel great!

My gynae said at least 6 weeks of nothing hectic, exercise, sex, etc... I' m sure it' s just a guideline but rather safe than sorry... :o)

Good luck!
