Sex after surgery???

Posted , 10 users are following.

Morning ladies,

I'm nearly 7 weeks post p&a repair and perenium repair. Last night, hubby and me tried to sex for first time. NOT SUCCESSFUL!!

Sorry for tmi.. Used lots of lube, but didn't even get full penetration. For me, it felt so tight and I was really tense as I was so scared. And even after a little was in, I burst into tears and pushed him off! Now I'm worried it's too tight?!

Can anyone please advise/ put my mind at rest??

I feel like I'm losing my virginity all over again and can't relax about it now sad

Thank you in advance

    Resting please don't worry because at 7 weeks post op I would have been surprised if you could have had intercourse. Being anxious doesn't help but you know that anyway. Leave it another week and try again.

      Thank you matron. You always talk sense! Yes, it's me being impatient and wanting to get back to normal I guess. You're right about waiting another week. While I have you though, I do have another question if you don't mind.

      I have 2 boys of 10 and 2. I'm obviously having to do school runs etc now and having to lift 2 yr old into/ out of car, put up pushchair, lift pushchair in and out of boot. Also, lug him around to change nappies as he's a runner!

      He weighs much more than 10kg... More than 1.5 stone. Any advice on how to do this safely?im bending knees, taking it slowly but I'm concerned I may be jeopardising my repairs with all the lifting.

      Sorry for all questions but my post op isn't till end of Feb X

      Ask away Resting. I'm a bit worried about you lifting your little boy but I understand that it's not always possible to avoid these things but it sounds as though you're lifting correctly. If you're doing the school run is there anyone around perhaps one of the other mothers who could lift him?

    I remember thinking the same thing too - I think this is natural.  I'd suggest trying a finger first and then going VERY gradually from there.

      Hi Deborah,

      Thanks for the info, ill definitely try that. Soften the skin?? Jeez, why does nobody tell us this BEFORE the op lol. I'm so sick of it all now!

      Sorry for asking but what do you do? Just rub it in a couple of times a day?
