How long did you wait for sex???

I waited 12 weeks before receiving the "go ahead" from my physician. Six to eight weeks seems to be the norm though provided you have no complications. I had no complications whatsoever, but my physician prefers that her patients wait 12 weeks as a precaution. She just personally feels that it is best to give the body time to adequately heal before beginning sexual intercourse. It was a long and difficult wait, but it was well worth it as I experienced absolutely no complications or pain when we resumed sexual relations.

I waited 8 weeks, a bit uncomfortable at first but it does get better.

My doctor had cleared me at five weeks. The five weeks of waiting was torture as we have always had a healthy relationship.

There are many ways to be intimate with out actually doing the deed. Get creative, and be sure to listen to your body. If the creativity is too much, stop.

My doc says 6 weeks also. Please wait until your doc gives you the green light. I remember the surge in my sex drive the first two weeks. My doc did give me the go ahead at 4 weeks to try outercourse (clitoral stimulation) and that has worked fine, no complications. Sorry if TMI.

Me and DH resumed 5 1/2 weeks post op, but I really wish I would've waited another couple of weeks. You need to be comfortable with it and trust your body.

Hi Nevadachic, this question is best posed to your doctor. Be sure to ask when you see the doc, but don't count on getting the go-ahead just yet. I'd definitely recommend adhering to whatever your doctor says. Many who haven't have had alot of trouble healing properly and ome have even required additional surgery.

At my 4 week check-up my doctor said absolutely NO activity at all - with my partner or myself. I had my 2nd follow up last Friday (almost 8 weeks) and he gave me the all clear. We took things very slow - there was no pain, and everything worked juuuuust fine! Trust me, however long your doctor says you need to wait - it will be well worth it!
