Sex Earlier than Doctor says?

Hi, all .. I know this has been asked before .. but, have any of you resumed intercourse a little bit earlier than the doctor gave permission for? My gyn gave us the go ahead for Tuesday-Wednesday of next week and we're both so anxious. I'm so anxious, I'm considering talking hubby into it this weekend instead. It will be 5 1/2 weeks this weekend .. would it really make a difference a few days early?

Thoughts? Experience?

Pleeeeeease , follow your DR's orders to the letter on this one. Look at it this way: if you wait until your DR gives you the green light, and you have a problem, you can say "but you said it would be OK". What will you say if you do it too early and the unthinkable happens?

DenB,
I agree with suferbabe. No Way!!!! Even if it would be alright(which is an unknown) you don't want to risk it. Believe it or not it is not worth the risk.(my opinion) I think most of us will agree.
You'll have plenty of time for *fun* later. Heal now!!!

Hi Denise,

That makes 3 of us!! Waiting can be hard, as we Hyster Sisters know....and just think...the waiting will be worth it.

The body needs its ~full~ healing period and you might not want to jeopardize that when you are so close to your finish line.

Best wishes,

Mary

Dear Denise:

You surgeon did his job in the OR, and now it's up to you to complete the healing process by following doctor's orders...

Take a cold shower pls

i agree with everyone on this one. when i asked my dr. what would happen if you had intercourse too soon, she told me a story about when she was an intern and it really freaked her out. this woman was 1 week post op and came to her emergency room with her bowel in her vagina. that scared me enough to wait.

Wait! A few days can save you several weeks of problems! And just because you hit your 6 weeks mark, doesn't guarantee that all will be perfect anyway. Some ladies have problems even after they have been released. So please, be careful, and Tuesday or Wednesday, take it slow.

I agree. I read a case history about a woman who had sex before the doc released her--and she ended up being rehospitalized, in severe shock, and needing additional repairs to her vagina. Let your body heal. Cold showers or cuddle instead, please?

Ok, so I'm wise to listen to the wisdom of my sisters, and I will do just that. Do you agree I can go ahead at the 6 week mark, as the doctor has stated? If we're careful and I listen well to my body, we will be able to stop before anything adverse happens, is what I'm thinking. I understand CeCeRose611's fear, too .. I've read the experiences and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't afraid, too.

You know what .. let me be frank .. all this thinking and wanting and waiting and realistically, my DH is so terrified he may hurt me that he may be unable to resume making love, anyhow. His fear may get the better of him and we may be waiting even longer. ;-)

I thank you all for your honest, awesome support. What a group. Sisterhood in womanhood!
