    andrea I was wondering how you were. Well done for getting a new gynaecologist and treatment. I hope you've also got pain relief.

      A lot of people (and some health professionals) believe that if you ovulate you have to have a period but that's not the case. It isn't very common but it happens so yes you could well be ovulating.

      You can drive after 6 weeks but if anyone wants to drive before they should check with their insurance company. Some surgeons advise you can have a bath straight away but usually it's 6 weeks. This is to prevent the sutures from getting soggy. Regarding the number of stitches again this depends on the surgeon and the patient of course (weight) but about 4-6 either side of the repair and a few in the vaginal wall. You don't always see your sutures when they dissolve, I didn't.

      The emergency stop is the issue, if you have to do one without being in excruciating pain or what is even more worrying, if you don't have the strength to do one. There is a simple test though. If you can stamp your foot hard on the floor without it causing pain then you will be ok.

      It's a long story but The first night I got home I popped a stitch and was gushing blood. I was able to stop the bleeding myself. Not to worry though there are plenty other Stitchs to hold it together on the inside. but along with the popped stitch came allot of pain.. Then the paraneal repair stitches started to come out. I went to the doctor and she put some Silver Nitrate on it to burn the open wound ouch!  after that Things kinda went down hill.. I had a fever at night and lots of pain.. I was sleeping 20 hours a day. I finally got a new GYN and he did the tests that should have been done befor. I have an infection.. My discharge was white and watery with a fish smell. YUK!!!  Im five weeks tomorrow.. I sure hope im on the mend now. Hope this helps
