First Post-Op Sex Experience...

I was 7 weeks, 3 days post-op.

It was good -- I was able to have an orgasm, but things were a bit dry feeling. I used lube and it was okay, but did get a new prescription for some topical estrogen. My HRT patch is low dose for now due to the endometriosis, so the topical stuff is applied inside twice a week to help prevent dryness.

I guess my abdomen is a bit sore but nothing major.

At 6 weeks post op it was wonderful. Felt as good as it has always felt even better.

First Post-Op Sex Experience...

My doctor cleared me for all activities at 4 weeks and that's after a TAH. When my boyfriend got back in town a couple of nights later we went for it. I was a little scared but it was great and there wasn't any real pain. I felt a little sore around the top of my incision (vertical) later but it wasn't like the pain before when the fibroid was in the way.

We tried sex at 6 weeks but it felt uncomfortable. Tried again at 7 and a half weeks and still painful. I am back to the GP on Monday to sort it out. I have also contracted Chickenpox so maybe that isn't helping either!

He did not do an internal exam, so how would he know when it would be ok????

I am afraid to call him, I think I will wait a couple of days or call my GP instead.

(my surgeon has not been good about guiding me through recovery, as in NO INFO!)
I can emphasize with that - my surgeon has said he only needs to see me in December! My last post-op visit was when I was 12 days post-op. Luckily my recovery has been uneventful but I still have ureteric stents so I guess I will have to wait until those have been taken out before attempting anything (I'll have to ask the urologist, hopefully he will be more forthcoming)

dazemay,
It is possible that you have chickenpox sores up inside. I was 19 when I had them and they were up inside for me. Could be why it was painful? Just a thought...
I know having chickenpox as an adult is no picnic so I wish you well in getting better!

I agree with olynme; chickenpox can be internal. My daughter had them at 15 months, and she had them inside, too. It was miserable for her as she was still in diapers! But that is something to consider. Good luck. You poor thing!

OK, just had my first sex since surgery and OMG! I am soooooo glad I had this surgery!! No more painful sex!!
We just took our time and the big O was better than I remembered! There was/is no pain afterwards either! I hope all the sisters can have a great experience like I did. Good luck!!
