Q: Most OB/GYNs advise their patients to refrain from intercourse for at least _______ after giving birth.
a. six weeks
b. a year
c. three days
d. an hour
A: Resuming intercourse ultimately depends on the condition of your partner’s cervix and vagina, and, more important, on how you’re both feeling.
Tip: Before you mark that date on your calendar, remember that the six-week rule is only a guideline. Chances are it’ll be a while longer than that. A long while.
