bladder spasms after sex

I'm 11 weeks post-op. We've had relations a few times, but I find after I feel a slight burning in the vagina, and the bladder spasms increase in frequency. That puts me off doing it again, so we wait a few days, but it comes back when we have relations again. We're taking it easy, being gentle. Anyone else have this problem? How long does one have these bladder spasms for? I'm feeling discouraged and my doctor doesn't seem to have any comment on it. I'm in Thailand, had to explain what a "twinge" was so maybe he doesn't understand what I ask! Is it normal for that burning sensation in the vagina. It goes away overnight for the most part.
Thanks for all the support, being so far from home (Canada) this site has been terrific for me.

Hi bkklyndy,,

You are far from home, but how fun. I'm sorry you're having this, but I can relate because I had it too. I was able to avoid the burning sensation if we would used some extra lubrication, but I do know what you're saying. I also have had the bladder spasms. All I can say is that it gets better with time and my dr didn't find anything wrong or anything that could be fixed. I finally decided it was just my poor little bladder reacting to the activity in a negative way. Your bladder gets pretty traumatized during surgery as it is moved around and has to be peeled away from the uterus before they remove it. It stands to reason it might be sensitive for a while.
I didn't try this, but maybe you could try taking some Ibuprofen before "relations" to see if it would help with the after affects.
If you have anything that might suggest a bladder infection be sure to check that out too, but be encouraged that it will go away with more time to heal. Eleven weeks isn't really that far out.
Best wishes and let us know how it goes.

's, Rita
