healing time for vaginal cuff

I was wondering what's the total healing time for the vaginal cuff? Is there a point ya should call the doc for an appointment because something must not be healing right? Like it hurting durning sex (without blood). ?

Re: healing time for vaginal cuff

I am almost 4 mos post op and I still have alittle tenderness on the right side of my cuff depending on the position. It can take several months for a body to heal, especially with our cuffs that were basically a constructed thing. Unless you start bleeding again, I really wouldn't worry. But by any means, call your dr if you feel it's not right for you.

If it takes several months then I will wait to call. Is it like 6 months or more? Or less?

Re: healing time for vaginal cuff

the first 3 or 4 times if he went too deep it hurt and it's only one from one position. And yes, 6-8 months is not an unreasonable amount of time to heal. This is major surgery and a body can take an entire year as each person heals differently. If you experience pain during sex that you think shouldn't be there, call your dr, otherwise, some pain and tenderness and even swelling is normal after sex. Just take it easy. I have found that the further I get away from surgery, the more I have healed and the better it feels.

You are very welcome! We kinda feel like teens again, exploring, trying new things etc. Never thought we would be at that stage again. It's fun though, once you get past the fears and stuff. I still get anxious at times about sex but that's because I am still afraid to a certain extent. I don't want to mess anything up and have issues.
