Seriously, if you aren't telling them about your brother hitting you, you're being risky with not only your baby's life but your own as well. What if the blow damaged your placenta, and you are slowly bleeding out? It's a possibility, iirc. At any rate, you cannot assume everything is fine and let it all go. If you don't care enough to have them do a thorough check on the baby, at least you care enough about yourself to make sure YOU are okay, right? This whole thread is preposterous. PLEASE TELL SOMEONE WHAT HAPPENED. Good grief.

I happen to find the the OP rather trollish. I sure hope that's the case rather than the alternative of someone too self absorbed and dense to care for their own child.

no i didn't need to call anybody just wanted to know about dilation and cervix but now i don't. all i want to know right now is if i should call the doctor because i been having contractions. they were 5mins apart but now they are gone and i d on't know what to do. that's all i want this time
Yes, you should call the doctor if you contractions are 5 minutes apart. It is unusual for them to 5 minutes apart and then stop.
Please report your brother to the police, and keep your precious baby far away from him.
Again, wonderful news!
Joyful mama of 3.
That is question for your care provider if you are unsure. If you feel physically ready then it's entirely up to you really. I would recommend protection if you do not want to get pregnant again. You can ovulate before the return of your menstrual cycle.

Health practitioners generally suggest that you wait 5-6 weeks (sometimes even more) after a vaginal delivery before you have sex. They do a follow up appointment to make sure you are healed and then give you the go ahead. When is your follow up scheduled for? But as the PP said, it is mostly up to you if you feel ready (and have stopped bleeding, which would be a sign of still healing).

maymay, do you have a doctor you trust? A lot of these questions are too individual for us to help you with. If you're feeling fine and sex didn't hurt, you're probably fine, but you really need a doctor to assess you to make sure you're healing well. There are so many variables involved in pregnancy and birth that it's just not possible for us to tell you when you should or should not have sex. I'm glad you used protection, however. As previous posters have pointed out, you should have an appointment scheduled for roughly 6 weeks after birth. Hopefully you can get some of your questions answered then.
