Hi ladies, I'm 4 month's post op for A&P repair and apart from having to have 3 treatments for thrush, in hind sight I suppose all went well, my problem now is that thrush seems to have cleared but sex is still sore. Only actually had it 3 times since op. I'm 61 years old and wondered if that could be the problem rather than the op. Any advice would be helpful or do I see my gp.

    Hi I'm 4mths a & P repair also had issues with infection etc sex so far has been sore and slightly painful I think as the final stitches can take up to 16 weeks to disolve I'm assuming that this plays a part in the soreness, I've read a few other ladies blogs and on the positive things will improve as I'm only 52 I'm not ready to give up on sex lol, I have invested in some thicker lubrication as my consultant did say that scar tissue starts to form after 16 weeks ,hope I've helped x

    I was only anterior repair and it was 9mths till sex wasn't painful & didn't require lube! I do agree that our lack of for so long contributes too.

    Hi, just saw your post. I'm same age and am 6 weeks post op A&P. I'm scared to death to even try sex since the surgery. So sorry you are having this problem. I'm not a professional, but I don't think it is your age. I've heard others say they have pain, too. What did your Dr. say?

      Some Specialists give all clear for sex at 6wk check, maybe more for anterior repair only, rather than A & P. I can't imagine many have achieved it at 6wks, let alone even want to try that early on.

    As you are 61 carolyn and probably menopausal it could be to do wth that rather than your surgery. Vagifem is excellent and worth looking into as it will help build up the vaginal wall. I use it on the advice if my Urogynaecologist 6 years ago and my GP still prescribes it.
