orgasms in my sleep...will it hurt my healing?

ok, this may be a bit weird but its not something I feel comfortable asking my dr or friends...twice in the past 2 weeks since my TVH I have had very sexual dreams where I orgasmed or almost orgasmed in my dreams/as I was waking up. This happens to me every so often where I wake up having a small orgasm, but now that I'm healing on the inside I'm worried it can be bad for me.

my hubbie says our bodies will protect itself from hurting itself, ie, it would force me to wake up in pain if it was bad, so it shouldn't affect the healing but I don't know.

any comments? it doesn't hurt but we're not supposed to get aroused or anything whiel healing and this is bothering me honestly the last thing on my mind is sex, so where these dreams are coming from is anyones guess! I know I can't prevent it, but do you think ti will damage my healing?

I don't think you are hurting yourself.

At two weeks I was back to having them while awake
just not putting anything inside.

I also had really sexual dreams and feelings the first two weeks after my surgery.

Wow. My doctor told me no orgasms for 8 weeks. She didn't want any contractions to jeopardize the vaginal cuff.

I'm extremely frustrated these days!

Don't stress about it too much.... Not much you can do to prevent your dreams If you are not experiencing pain or spotting after your orgasm I don't think any damage has been done.

Think of it as proof that sexual pleasure really does start in the mind! If it worries you, you can definitely discuss it with your Dr, trust me when I say he/she has DEFINITELY heard this before!

I had a TVH and I asked my md. She said "outercourse" was okay, but nothing inside the vagina.
All is well here.. didn't have any issues 12 days post op

This may be bad but I am jealous . I think your hubby is right in that it will not hurt you. I also don't think there is really anything you can do to stop it from happening.
