    I am 25 days post C-section & I'd like to know if it is OK to be intimate with my DP again.

    My parents are having the baby tomorrow & I really want to connect with him again. I feel like I want to try doing the deed but don't know if safe.

    I am still experiencing lochia which is brown atm so I'm obviously still bleeding.

    I'm not bothered about full on sex but do you think we'll be OK to try other things as long as nothing is inserted vaginally?

    Do you think it will be painful for my wound if we did?

    I just really feel ready & I'm missing the closeness that's all.

    I would wait until your 6 week postpartum check up and ask if you can DTD again.
    If you are still bleeding a bit, it means the cervix hasn't fully healed yet. You should avoid sex as it can lead to infection.x
