How’s Sex Once You’re Healed from Rectocele?

Posted , 10 users are following.

I’ve been told by my surgeon that sex will be normal again once I am healed. I hope he’s right. I know with the prolapse I had loss of sensation and it was causing some serious depression. What was your first time like after surgery? Is it more snug? More sensation?

    Be very patient, I was told to wait twelve weeks, I thought my consultant was joking; she wasn’t!

    I don't have penetrative sex so not an issue. But I do want to know when it is safe to have an orgasm!

    Glad you posed this question to our forum gals. So it seems hold back for 12 weeks. 

    I was told after 8 weeks but I have found every recovery  timeframe that I have read on every aspect has been understated.  So thanks to those who have given us the REAL situation.  

    We all want the best return to our former glory!!!!

    Hi - I was checked at 8 weeks and wasn't fully healed and told not to try penetrative intercourse until I had been seen and cleared at 12 weeks. We tried tentatively at 12 weeks, hubby said it felt tighter, I was just relieved it didn't hurt but not a great deal of sensation either. As time has progressed (now at 6 months post op), we are more confident and it all feels fine. My G spot however does seem to have gone missing in action and we have to rely on clitoral orgasms - which thankfully were ok and safe from quite early post op. Good luck.
