    Sex after Miscarriage...
    MommyManda posted:
    I just recently had my second miscarriage on the 23rd. Ironically exactly one year after my first miscarriage. With my first miscarriage I bled like crazy, for like a month! And I didn't want my boyfriend to touch me, just the smallest thought of sex or anything related made me feel really sick. Now this time, I quit bleeding after just 5 days. and the 6th day, all I could think about was sex. It was quite silly really cause I've never been like "crazed" for sex, but my boyfriend and I ended up having sex on that 6th day, and every day since.. I bled just slightly after the first time, but haven't since. Is this bad, should we wait awhile longer before continuing this?

    I just had a D&E today and they told me to wait 2 weeks to have sex. Not sure if it's different if you have a D&E or it passes naturally.
