Here are some ...: Since masturbation is not an urgent essential matter, it's a good respectful advice to give the uterus a time of at least 2-3 weeks to heal its lining after shedding the placenta and its mucosa from childbirth. Known to us, the unhealed mucosa is easy to bleed from vigorous uterine contraction from orgasm. So, you decide what you should do.
