8 weeks post op ... ?? Sex

Posted , 5 users are following.


I'm now 8 weeks post anterior posterior repair. At my 6 week check the specialist said wait another 2 weeks before intercourse which is now. I know it's a very personal subject but I'm really nervous about having sex again. Is anyone willing to share how long they waited?

    3 months both times I had surgery and even then had to use plenty lube and go easy. They often judge if surgery is successful based on being able to have intercourse.

               I thing it took a little longer to be completely comfortable after posterior repair.

    Hi Kym

    My husband and I tried at 7 weeks and he could feel the stitches .. i was so worried about doing any damage and if it was going to be painful that I couldn’t relax either .. there was a small amount of pain but to be honest I was relieved to know that we could still have sex.. waited another week and tried again and was much easier.. I would just wait until you feel ready to try and make sure your husband is gentle and stops if you are uncomfortable.. I am 52 and it is like being a virgin again so my husband thinks it is fab lol..

    I am just over 10 weeks vaginal hysterectomy with bladder and bowel repair but it is a much slower process than I was told.. best advice is to rest as much as possible and only do things when it feels right ..take care
