Sex without a cervix

I haven't had the ok for sex yet but I'm wondering if it's different for anyone with no cervix? Is the vagina any shorter? I'm anxious but nervous too!

I can only tell you that DH said it isn't any different, unless there is certain foreplay involved if you get my drift(trying to keep it PG here) but nothing that made him stop!
The only difference I noticed was I didn't have my uterine orgasm contractions, so the big O feels a little different and takes a little more to get there sometimes. But everyone has a diff experience.

Sex without a cervix

Hi Karen,
Back at my 6 wk ck I asked the dr. about the vaginal cuff (the closure end of the vagina after the cervix has been removed). I heard questions here wondering if having the cuff makes the vagina shorter or not.

His answer was "The difference is so small it isn't noticeable." He said to picture a tall glass being the vagina. Now, set an apple on the opening of the glass. That's the uterus. The part of the apple that hangs into the glass is the cervix. He said when the cervix is removed there is actually more room in the glass. But then, suturing the edges of the glass to meet takes up some of that extra room that you had when the apple was removed.... so, it's just about the same.

(However, if you had a prolapsed uterus, where the 'apple' was farther down in the 'glass'.... then you might notice a difference by having a little more length than what you were used to.)

I thought this was a pretty good analogy, hope it helps you also.
s,
Beth

Hi Karen,

No, no different really. For me it was about 8-10 weeks post op before I felt ready to do that (even though I was cleared for sooner); so things were tighter of course, but that will also get back to normal...with practice...

I asked DH if it felt any different to him and he said no.

The big "O" of course feels different...not better or not worse...just different...good; but different, if that makes any sense. Now that feels normal to me as well. I am almost 7 months post op now.

Best wishes to you; 's
