I had sex for the first time and it all fit nicely. When you are aroused the vagina lenghthens. Even before surgery it is only 3 inches long so that didn't change.

Good Luck,

I still have my cervix, but was wondering what happened at the top of the crevix where the uterus used to be. I was worried that one day when I was maybe straining for a BM (way down the road), my insides would start falling out. So I asked my Dr at my suture removal appointment. He chuckled a little, told me it was a good question and then told me that he used some sort of gauze or mesh over the top of the cervix and that my tissue would grow over the gauze or mesh he used.

This thread has been very interesting and quite informative for me and I kept my cervix.

Sorry to hear that. I believe in the other thread it did not fit on the first try either and the sister made an announcement when "the car fit in the garage" again.

Amazed

I am amazed at the ladies that don't know what their bodies feel like. When my Dr. released me for sex I figured it was OK to "feel for myself". I think if a penis can be in there then my clean fingers can too. My cuff runs front to back and feels like a swollen incision with stitches. I would like to see what it looks like but haven't managed to get the cuff into view on my mirror. I was going to ask my Dr. if I could use a mirror to look while he had the speculum in there. But thought that might be too weird. Can't have the doctor thinking I'm nuts.

Dont be amazed some of us are a bit squemish. I'm a year out and still haven't had a good 'look' lol up there. I know it all works still that is all that matters. I was regularily checking for bleeding or some unexplained discharge before my hyst. It really isn't a big deal that I haven't checked up there yet. Best wishes to you and your continued recovery.
