I would check with your Dr. But my usually quiet Dr. did mention at discharge from the castle, his exact words " no intercourse for 6 weeks" my response was " well Dh is not going to be happy" He then said "there are other things you can do".
My Dr. is not very informative, or vocal, other than the constant "Bare with me" during any concious exam or test. So I was in shock and didn't ask any further questions. Wish I had now.
He did also mention at 1 week post op " nothing in the vagina".
I guess you just get to be creative and always careful.
But I would suggest calling you Dr to be sure, you don't want any set backs.

No I definitly wouldnt want any setbacks at all .... that is another reason why I will wait until my Gynae gives me the all clear in January .... Im just scared that I may do some damage and put myself back at square one of the healing process

I agree, check with your Doc, but I was cleared for sex at 4 weeks. I had a LSH and bladder sling done. The big "O" went very, very well for me

My husband went for the big "O" a week after the op, but it was too early in the healing process and it was not a great experience. A week later we tried again and it was great! My doctor still does not want to clear me for penetration (I am almost 8 weeks) but having regular "O"'s!

I brought myself to the big "O" 10 days post-op and told my wonderfully surprised DH about it. I told him "I wanted to make sure I still worked" , I did and it felt good. We had wonderful extrenal outerplay until I was released for intercourse(12/7) . It feels great, enjoy!!!

I had TAH on dec.5, i saw my doctor on the 10th. he strongly discouraged vaginal sex until after my six week check. Don't know if this applies to you,but I also had my cervix removed . He said that because of that there are stitches in there and
if we have sex there is the possibilty of rupturing those stitches and causing my intestines to come out. No kidding, that is what he said!!! believe me there are alternatives my husband would like much better than that...and i can wait!

Hey Chickette, I actually asked my doc before surgery about external stimulation and he said, "go for it". I knew I wouldn't be able to go for 8 weeks (how long he told me no intercourse). My surgery was a Tuesday and that Friday my libido was on fire! I still waited until 2 weeks out but I have been having the big "O" since then and it's wonderful!

Yeap I have had my Cervix removed as well ... and that is what sorta scares me in a way .... is the thought of how many stitches are in there (were in there?) holding me together lol .... I had my surgery on the 15th November and dont get to see my Gynae again until 24th January!!! maybe too much info but oh my gosh thats a long time without 'it'!!
