6 weeks post op (lavh) help

I had sex for the first time since surgery yesterday and i couldnt feel anything it was like i had numbing meds. in there or something.Just curious if anyone else has had this and if so does it get better?Dr said it should get better so that has me a little nervous.
Anyone else just not feeling like you just kinda of a wierd feeling hard to explain.This is just so much harder than i thought it would be.

Thanks in advance for any advice

Hi mabie24
Try not to panic. You really are very early in your recovery. Six weeks is an important milestone but it's generally considered the minimum time for initial healing. Most women find that first time not to be earth shaking. Try to be patient with your body.
We didn't even try until week 7 and it wasn't the greatest. Each week I found it improved. Even though incisions may be closed the tissue is still tender and not back to normal. in there and try to enjoy the process. It is a long recovery but you're getting there.
's, Rita

I know how you feel

I had the same weird feeling with sex. We had to wait until during the eighth week. I will be 12 weeks on friday and the feeling is slowly getting better. I think part of it is because there isn't a cervix to hit I just don't feel an end. It is a weird feeling but I am slowly getting used to the sensation. The thing I dislike is that with even say two minutes of penatration I hurt for days as if we had a few hours go round. Well just gotta give it time and adjust to the new set up of things in there. Just take it slow. Things do start to get better with time. Just remember to tell him you need lots and lots of foreplay and remember the lube. The little my body creates now just doesn't cut it. Good luck, have fun, and just take it slow.
