After I had my daughter I bled for a week heavily then lightly for about another week.

I don't think you will be able to get the b/c shot till you stop bleeding after the birth......Not sure though.

I personally don't think you should worry about getting the shot until you have healed! I am supprised that your doctor is going to do this for you. I doubt that you will be in the mood for nookie!

You can bleed anywhere from 2-6 weeks after giving birth. Usually the first week is the worst with clots and such. Like the other ladies mentioned most women are not interested in having sex that soon after child birth vaginal or csection. You have to wait six weeks after birth to start on depo-provera. There may be other birth control options that you can start sooner, I would talk to your doc.
