Still not cleared for sex from my doctor, but...

(sorry if this is TMI) I had an orgasm during a dream last night. This morning I feel a little sore. I didn't have anything in the vagina (as my doc loves to remind me). I was a little relieved knowing things are still "working" when I woke up, but then scared that it might have set me back. Anyone else had this happen??

My doctor told me not to even *think* about sex during the recovery time, so I'm worried!

Re: Still not cleared for sex from my doctor, but...

With all the fibroids, heavy periods and general yucky feelings before the op, I had lost my sex drive.

I was chuffed to bits when I had a similar dreaming orgasm like you.

The mind is our best erogenous zone!!

One of my sisters from my date club had one in the shower, and we were all very jealous!!

mrslibrary: I've always had a naughty mind, so I'm glad it's still there. LOL. I'm just worried I might have ANOTHER setback. Awaiting other responses & hoping I'm okay!

Re: Still not cleared for sex from my doctor, but...

Haha! Yep, a morale booster all right!!

I am jealous! Sheesh!

You know, I am only 2 weeks out, but I've noticed sex on the brain this last few days and I am so relieved! I thought since I had no interest for so long that it would be gone forever...and nope! She's baaack! And she's pretty darned frustrated! But I think it's wonderful, because I heard and read so much about dysfunction after hysterectomy and I admit, I was scared But now I am not scared at all and look forward to clearance. Hell, I am excited! But bummed that I have to wait But also, the idea of sex without pain and unexpected floods and all that other garbage...woo hooo!

So yeah, I am jealous. And anxiously waiting for my turn. Ha!

Thanks, ladies! I'll be sure to check in when I finally get clearance (hopefully 3 more weeks)...

I had to tell my doctor at my 4 week appt that I had been having orgasms since the first week, because I just have them spontaneously (seriously!). She replied, "Well, I told you no INTERCOURSE, but I didn't say no sex". I looked at her puzzled, confused, lol. She said no worries, as long as nothing goes in, everything is OK. She also told me, at this point, that outercourse is absolutely OK for me, so I'm guessing orgasms are *not* hurting my healing process. There seems to be a lot of differing opinions on this, no consensus with doctors. But.... I'm sure they are being extra cautious with the warnings, as some women do not heal quickly and can have problems with their healing time if they have orgasms (blood rush to internal injuries).

Make sure you let your doc know at your follow up. Maybe, like me, you will get permission to go there, on purpose, if you're healing well. Since I was given the GO on orgasm, I guess it hadn't hurt me a bit WHEW!

Re: Still not cleared for sex from my doctor, but...

Two days after I got home from the hospital after my TAH my sex drive came back full force. When I got my staples out we asked the doctor about what we could and could not do. I have spontaneous orgasms too. The doctor said outer course and orgasms were completely safe but NOTHING should go in until you get released after your 6 week check up. Once the doctor sees that you are healing properly then you can go at it like normal. That was a very long six weeks. LOL

My Dr. told me no sex until 8 weeks and then have my DH where a condom because the stitches in the vagina are prickly (like a porcupine) and could scratch DH. Sooooo know normal sex for a while.
