Sensitive Question

Ok, in my best "Church Lady" voice, let's talk about s-ex. LOL How are some of you handling this before surgery? My sex drive is in high gear, but I'm bothered by the bleeding. What do you do? Is it not an option at all? Is there something you can do to make it not so unappealing (mess, not desire)? How long before your surgery should you abstain?

Sorry so frank, I'm just an open and curious person.

Hey Christine
I can certainly say that this is not a place where you need to be shy...
I'm pretty sure that there is no reason that you can't have sex pre-op...especially if you still feel like it (you lucky girl)

As for the mess....all I can say is....lots and lots of old towels that you don't mind getting kinda messy. They're washable right?

Or might I suggest....the shower is a good need to worry about a mess there!

Oh, my mom would be appalled!!!

I would just check with the doc to see if you need to abstain before surgery for a certain amount of time. But till then...YOU GO GIRL!!!
