Re: Pain down there...?
The rule of thumb is that you should be continually getting better. If you were making progress, then all of a sudden it started hurting more or bleeding more, you should probably take things a little more slowly.
Also, just because the doc gives you the okay to do something, it doesn't necessarily mean that your body will agree. It took me WAY longer than 6 weeks to have sex without it being really painful.
Take a cue from your body, it'll tell you what its ready for.
20 hours of hypnobirthing and I LOVED every second of it!
