If you just gave birth a couple of days ago and perhaps wondering when your husband should be medically allowed to start making advances for love making, then this article is certainly for you.

When Should a Woman Start Having Intimacy After Childbirth?

According to the publication on Mayo Clinic, there is no stated time frame for copulation after childbirth. As a matter of fact, everyone is free to do what pleases them as long as no pain is felt in any way during the act. But there is some advice regarding this subject matter and that is for women to wait at least for 4 to 6 weeks after childbirth before they start getting down.

The reason for this little wait time is that women tend to have complications of childbirth within the first 2 weeks after giving birth. So it is advisable for their partners to give them at least the first 4 to 6 weeks to ensure that there is no complication whatsoever since childbirth is a life changing activity for women, it will only be fair to give them this time. Apart from this timeframe given as an advice to new mothers, there is no compulsory wait time as long as the woman is not having any issues and if she is, a visit to the hospital should be the best option.
