I'm already sexually active after having baby almost 3weeks ago. Any way to prevent infection?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Condom

While physicians usually suggest waiting a little longer for the body to recover after delivery to have sex again, everyone handles it differently.
The risk of infection can be a little higher when started early because of anatomy changes.The best way to avoid infection at this point is to have same partner, and use a condom.
