    Hi. I am 3 weeks post laparotomy for TAH and BSO for large cysts and endometriosis. I was told no intercourse for 6 weeks due to infection risk and removing cervix can leave top of vagina quite sore.

    I am sure a bit of gentle foreplay and the big O would be fine if it's comfortable for you.

    Was it just cysts removed?

    Hi Eva

    I'm 22 and had a vertical laparotomy to remove a cyst 18cm x 16cm and then a cluster of cysts on my other ovary.

    I was time to wait at least 6 weeks before sex or anything because of how the muscles tense. However, I think just before 5 weeks I felt well enough in myself to have sex. I didn't have any problems.

    You know what your body can handle and as long as your partner isn't putting any pressure on your stomach, I don't see why it'd be an issue xx
