2-3 months: If you did not breastfeeding, your period usually returns within 2-3 months. Give it a little more time, but if it doesn't return, call your MD. Remember that you will ovulate before you have your first period, so you can get pregnant without having one. Use contraception if you don't want to get pregnant again so soon. ...Read more

Sex and pregnancy how long after c-section can a woman have sex?...Also how long after should she start doing house work again?

Sex and pregnancy how long after c-section can a woman have sex?...Also how long after should she start doing house work again?

Most : Most doctors say to wait 6 weeks, however i tell patients that they can resume sex when they feel comfortable (i.e. No pain in stomach, scar healed).

Again i will state that you should go at your own pace, resume activities when you are comfortable. Good luck to you. ...Read more

What is the optimal time to get pregnant after cs as I can't wait too long as I lost my baby ?

Depends : It really depends on what the c section was done for and what likely caused your infants death. If it was a stillbirth it is even more concerning.

How long should it take a 20 yr old to get pregnant while having unprtotected sex weekly, and how long after stopping depo?

If my husband is taking a high dose of vitamin a for around 6 months for acne, how long do we have to wait before trying to get pregnant?

You should be fine: It's the mother that shouldn't take vitamin a analogues for acne. I also hope that your husband isn't self-medication with store-bought vitamin a; this is dangerous. A dermatologist can offer Accutane which will clear him up; it's related to vitamin a. Double-check with your dermagologist, but the scare stories seem to be generated by tort lawyers. ...Read more
