Intercourse

This should be postponed until after bleeding stops and stitches are healed (usually 3-4 weeks).  Condoms and vaginal foam may be used for contraception.  Depo Provera, another option, may be given in the hospital for contraception if desired.  Other birth control measures will be discussed at your six weeks checkup.  Breastfeeding is NOT a means of birth control.
