    I had the procedure six weeks ago and had sex after 3 weeks. However, I've had to self-cathe since the procedure. The urologist said he was surprised I couldn't urinate but that it would come back spontaneously in a month or two.

    Been two years since my Urolift.  Love it.  Don't recall how long before sex, but it wasn't long.  Two things - found I ejaculated like a teenager again - was off Flomax then, and for a few weeks you can feel the "inserts" when you come.  Probably from the muscles that do the ejaculation work.  Not painful - just different.

      Thanks for the information. Do you remember how long it took to feel all the positive effects? Also, how many times did you wake up at night before the procedure and do you wake up at night now?

      Thanks
