Daft question !

Hi I am waiting for a hysterectomy and have found this site really helpful. One question I can't find the answer to is if I have a TVH or LVH after the six week healing period will I be able to have sex in the same way as I do now ? . Any advice would be greatfully appreciated. Please feel free to :email: directly.

Daft question !

Welcome to Hystersisters!

My dr told me nothing in the vagina for 8 weeks. Please wait until your dr gives the ok. Some heal faster or slower than others. Also, don't be surprised if the first couple of times you have some tenderness.

I had a LAVH and everything's the same as it was before...if not better.

Dear Nuttytart,

Every Doctor has different preferences. The discharge instructions I was given after LAVH read:
"Intercourse: Please avoid sexual relations for one month after surgery to allow the stitches at the top of the vagina to heal."

Reading that some Sisters have experienced tenderness, discomfort, pain or bleeding when first resuming sex, I may wait a bit longer.

Daft question !

I have to say that I finally attempted it at almost seven weeks post-op. I was very nervous, as it turns out for nothing. I had no pain and it was great, better than ever. My husband was very happy as well, had I realized how great it was after I would've had the surgery a long time ago. Did keep the ovaries, may have something to do with it. My doctor did say there may be some spotting after, but I didn't have any. Hope things go as well for you, don't worry!

Hi nuttytart!
As the ladies have stated here, please listen to your doctor on this one. I had a TVH and was told no intercourse for 8 weeks. Orgasm was fine, but nothing in the vagina. I did have some tenderness the first couple of times (where the vagina had been tacked and was told these stitches are often the last to heal), but otherwise everything is fine! Good luck to you!

Daft question !

I had TVH and my dr told me after my three week check up and she did an internal that I could have sex..Well we tried it and altho I didn't bleed and there wasn't really what I"d call pain..I was just too nervous, and my DH understood And even at four weeks I was quite nervous But then at five weeks I said okay ready to take the plunge again..And I relaxed ...and it was great. I haven't had any bleeding or any cramping or discomfort DH took it slow and gentle and it was great..Now if only I can get that old desire back up to waht it was..I am just so tired at nite that I have none..I am told that this will come back..but sex is actually better than it was before as there is no pain.
