Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hi, It's Dr. C. Board certified Ob-gyne. I can help you today.
Since it's only been 3 weeks, it's best to avoid penile penetration until the cervix has been checked to be closed and back to normal. If possible engage in clitoral stimulation to satisfy any sexual urges until your OB says it's safe.
I hope this is helpful information.
There is risk of infection. But the truth is that many many women have penile penetrative sex before their 6 weeks check up and nothing bad happens. But as a gynecologist, it's something we think about and prefer that women avoid anything in the vagina if the cervix is open.
If none, please leave a rating for my service. I aim for excellent and appreciate your feedback. Thanks.
