I am now 13 weeks post-vaginal hysterectomy and anterior repair. Overall, my recovery has been good and I've had no major problems save for extreme tiredness. However, my partner and I began having sex again about week 9 after the op and I could quite clearly feel an area of tenderness/discomfort down the left side of my vaginal passage (presumably stitches healing from bladder repair) so decided it was obviously too soon. We tried again a few more times leaving it longer between each time to see if it improved. I think there has been a small improvement but the area is still very tender and makes sex quite unpleasant. My husband is very understanding but we're now wondering whether this is as good as it gets or should I return to my gynaecologist? If sex is permanently now going to be this uncomfortable for me, it looks like I may have to call it a day. Any advice would be great, thanks.
