Customer Question

I am 3 weeks today since my c section m. I had a complete placenta previa and delivered at 36.5 weeks. I still have some light bleeding. I was wondering if an orgasm with no penetration would be ok if I feel up to it. I do still have some occasional abdominal soreness though.

Hello, I'm Dr Manos, board certified obgyn. I think it would be wise to avoid something that would cause sharp abdominal muscle contractions particularly if your incision was up and down and not a low transverse incision. Low transverse (pfannenstiel) incision would be less likely to be a problem but would feel sore either way. Waiting about ten days would be better.
