sex afterwards?

I was released Monday of this week; TAH/BSO, no other repairs; healed wonderfully too; I have not tried sex yet.. (ok, single and not really thinking along those lines right now... LOL ) but one thing the Dr. said was... 'if it hurts, stop!" "If there is any bleeding, not just a pink tinge, call my office immediately."...

I love my Dr.

sex afterwards?

Just wanted to share my sex life, too! Feeling a little left out. Precious Pearl already read about my stitches...we weren't released for the mating season until week 9 and waited until week 10. We took it very slow and I had no pain at all. I was having the time of my life, really enjoying myself when I noticed my DH wincing! The stitches were hurting him but he said that I was having such a good time he didn't want to ruin things for me! I love him. I had no bleeding and felt fine. We waited about 4 days and tried again. Not so good the 2nd (and 3rd) time. I had a lot of pain, spotting and could feel him tugging on the stitches. DH said it was like a little devil poking him out of there. I see the dr tomorrow so I'll know more about these stitches. DH and I find something to laugh about...just makes it easier.
Take care.

sex afterwards?

Wow! What a response! Went to the Dr. Yesterday to find out why the pain. Because of the surgery, past deliveries, stretching etc. She did some tightening and that I should massage the perianum (spelling ?) with Vitamin E or A&D ointment to help break up the scar tissue underneath and "that with time things will be better" Vaginal cuff looked ok I guess because she took a peek inside. Said length and width was "sufficient". Just to massage the area, lubricate and be patient! Massaging the area has made it tender, not painful so it might be a few more days before we actually "do the deed" (blush) Thanks goodness that like several others here have mentioned, I have a most patient loving perfect husband for me.I guess all the stitches have dissolved inside? we'll find out if not!!

We tried sex at 10 weeks post TAH/BSO( 9/15 surgery date), cleared at 9 but vaginal cuff still not totally healed, silver nitrate applied for 2nd time. so gave it another week. Was very painful and hurt badly for 3-4 hrs after than, felt twinges of pain for 2 days as well with bloody serous discharge. So if it occurs again i will see MD, that is when brave enough to try SEX again!!!! Jillian
