Jeannie Mai Jenkins emphasized that she’s human after revealing spicy details about her life after giving birth, specifically her sex life. The Real daytime talk show host spilled the tea on the show about how she and her husband, Jeezy, couldn’t wait the doctor-recommended six-week period before “getting busy” in the bedroom.
The discussion began during their “Girl. We’re Not Done Chatting Yet” segment when Mai Jenkin’s fellow cast member Loni Love brought up a question from an online forum: “Tell me a time when you knew you were gonna put it on him and what did you do to make him wanna put it on him?”
Each host shared what their men do to get them turned on and ready. After Adrienne Houghton shared hers, she directed a question at Mai Jenkins about how some women get turned on seeing their husbands being fathers, causing some ladies to ignore the six-week wait period for sex after birth.
Mai Jenkins was not shy to admit that she was a part of that community.
“It’s true. We did not wait six weeks,” Mai Jenkins said. “We did not, no. I think we went two…two weeks.”
Her co-hosts were shocked about her getting back to sex too soon.
“Two weeks?! What is happening,” Loni Love said. “You know what, I am not a doctor, and I do not recommend this.”
Houghton then proceeded to tell a joke saying, “I know the doctor said you can’t, but what did the dentist say.”
Although Mai Jenkins disregarded the doctor’s recommendation, it’s not required to wait four to six weeks after delivery to have sex. Doctors just recommend it because, according to Mayo Clinic, the first two weeks after giving birth have high risks of complications. The waiting period gives the body time to heal.
“You might experience some pain during sex if you’re healing from an episiotomy or perineal tears,” the website said.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommend the same thing for those who underwent a cesarean birth, stating, “To prevent infection, do not place anything in your vagina (such as tampons) or have sex for a few weeks. Allow time to heal before doing any strenuous activity.”
