ABSOLUTELY: Condoms are only 85-90% effective. The condom may fall off during withdrawal of the penis and sperm can find their way back up into the vagina, through the cervix, up the uterus, and into the fallopian tube where an anxious egg await. It only takes one sperm to penetrate the egg and a male ejaculate may contains as many as 150, 000, 000 of them.

6 weeks: For many years obs have always said 6 weeks. I would imagine most patients do not wait that long. With an episiotomy, we feel 6 weeks are needed for complete healing. Without an episiotomy there is no need to wait 6 weeks. The uterus takes about 6 weeks to return to normal size but this should not be a factor. With a cesarean certainly 6 weeks makes sense. In short, i would suggest 6 weeks.

No: Varicose veins are due to incompetent valves in the veins of the legs. It does not reflect on your heart. When you stand for long periods of time, gravity assists in pooling of the blood in the lower extremities. The same happens when sitting for long periods of time since blood flow back to the heart is impeded by the pressure on the back of your legs.
