Gave birth 9 days ago. Bleeding has stopped and had a tubal 8 days ago. Can I have sex tonight?

Yes. Have fun.: It seems like your risk of infection is quite small now that your bleeding has stopped and your risk of pregnancy is even smaller since your tubes have been occluded. You may find it useful to use a "lubricating" cream, gel or moisturizer at first, particularly if you are breastfeeding...otherwise do what makes you most comfortable and enjoy yourself. ...Read more

Is it safe to have sex 3 weeks after c-section and tubal ligation?

Is it safe to have sex 3 weeks after c-section and tubal ligation?

Questionable: It is "safe" in the sense that you probably wont become pregnant from the experience:-) Could cause some pain and possibly an ascending infection in the uterus. Sex happens frequently but the infection risk is rare. However, I do think the risk benefit ratio falls in favor of abstinence till after 4 weeks minimum and 6 weeks preferably. ...Read more

If I had sex but then got my period and it was heavy and then the following month I didn't have sex but when my period came it was light and brown tinged with red and didn't last long what could that mean? Is there anyway I could be pregnant? I didn't hav

Yes, you may be: If you had unprotected sexual intercourse with a fertile man, there is a risk you may be pregnant or may have been pregnant.

Old way or DNA way..: The father of an unborn baby is the person a woman had sex with. To avoid confusion, and many emotional, community, and societal problems, men and women can choose to have sex with one person in any time period (thus avoiding any confusion as to who the father is). Failing that, when the baby is born the mother may be able to tell who her baby looks like the most. Dna testing can be done, too. ...Read more
