Sex after silver nitrate treatment???

Doc said wait a day or 2 then I would be good to go. Then I get on here and read that some people have been told to wait weeks???


DH said he wanted to give it more time anyway. He is very concerned that he is going to make things worse. But that brings up another do you make it easier for "him". Any suggestions from ladies who have "been there and done that"??

Kristi, please follow your drs orders, if you aren't ready in a couple of days, wait till you are. You know your body better than anyone. I assume you are asking how to make it easier for your dh when you are ready for intimacy, here is an article that may be helpful Be sure and check out the Post op Sex Checkpoint there is alot of info there also. I hope this helps some. I am wishing you the best. Lots of s, Carol

Sex after silver nitrate treatment???

I had the silver nitrate and my doc said to wait until spotting from that stopped and then I was good to go. It lasted about 4 days.

Just be patient with your body! Things work better than you think when you are patient!

Sex after silver nitrate treatment???

I had my first silver nitrate treatment and my Doc said to wait 2 days before sex, then return in 2 weeks for a follow-up appointment. I waited almost 4 days and was fine. Went in for my follow-up appointment and needed 1 more silver nitate treatment, Doc told me to wait 1 day after that treatment....waited 3 days and I have been OK since...Good luck...Miss Trixie

Sex after silver nitrate treatment???

Thanks, ladies. I truly appreciate your time in helping me.

I have to admit...I'm a bit scared about getting back in the saddle, to speak.

The discharge has definitely increased since treatment. My doc and nurse must have been in a hurry...usually they would have given me some notice about this, but neither said a word. Also, abdominal pain has increased dramatically. I am assuming it is from the physical exam. If it doesn't decrease in the next days or two, I'm calling the doc. But on an up note... I now realize just how good I was feeling.

Have a great night!

My doctor said nothing in the vagina for 5 days after the silver nitrate treatment. The tissue needs time to heal, and friction from intercourse prevents that from happening.

Sex after silver nitrate treatment???

2 part question;
1. well we had intercourse with no bleeding then I put in vaginal applicator with yeat infection cream and blood came out on the applicator and I spotted yesterday- so I felt in the vagina- there is a hard stitich or granulation I guess? Is this the vaginal cuff? I don't know what you ladies are talking about but it sounds like it- my cervix is removed.

2.Also when I put the applicator "in" it felt so different than it did when I inserted tampons sort of like it had nowhere to go? is my vagina shorter now?
Maybe I need the silver nitrate treatment or does it heal on it's own if the spotting has stopped?
