Hi all

I am currently on the list waiting for a rectocele repair . (Cystocele repair and Hysterectomy done some years ago now).

I am 49 years old and my consultant mentioned that the vagina will "change shape" after surgery and that intercourse could be painful. Not sure if he meant permanently or just whlist things are healing.!!

Any help on this subject grately apreciated.

thank you

    There's no reason why you will suffer pain with intercourse once you've healed. I'm sure your consultant meant it could be painful when you first have sex after surgery but not long term.

      I meant to add Kar that a lot of women think s X is better following the operation because the surgeon tightens the vagina because as we get older the wall of the vagina loosens somewhat. Some couples comment it's like it used to be at the beginning of their relationship 😉😉

      I did mean to add that some couples say that sex is better than before the surgery because very often the surgeon will tighten the vagina because as we get older and the female hormones deminish somewhat the vaginal wall becomes more flaccid and looser.

      Some ladies find that sex is better following their prolapse repair because the consultant tightens the vagina particularly where it's become more flaccid. This often happens due to the reduction in female hormones as we get older.

    Hi I had rectocele repair 5 1/2 years ago at the age of 39 and personally never noticed any difference other than from day one the huge improvement in going to the bathroom just wish I had went to doctor sooner and could've saved myself a lot of discomfort and embarrassment for 10 + years. Unfortunately mine failed last year but was my own fault as I got cocky and started lifting furniture etc. Just had it repaired again along with cystocele and sacrospinous hysteropexy and will never make the same mistakes again x

    Hi Kar! I'm in the waiting list also for rectocele and I asked my dr last week and he said that I would not have pain with intercourse after surgery. If it's your first surgery maybe he means that when Drs do this kind of op they narrow the vagina a bit. I will have only stitches, not mesh in my rectocele surgery.

    By the way, Matron if you don't mind I change the subject I had this morning a lot of pain inside my vagina and the feeling I had something inside. The pain has lasted 2 hours. I have not had any pain for 2 months and I was happy. I have looked at the area and everything in its place. I suspect it could have relation to intestinal gas and fullness of my rectum I have been feeling since yesterday. This morning I have been with a lot of intestinal gas and a bit constipated, Ihad my belly swallen, in fact I had pain from the vagina to the belly 😔 What do you think? Hugs!!
