Take your time - it does get easier :)

Hi Ladies

We tried at six weeks, with moderate success. Let's just say that the garage couldn't accommodate the entire car... and it was a tight fit.

Anyway, keep practising every few days. I'm 9 1/2 weeks out, and almost there.

Guess I'll just have to keep practising some more...

I am only at 2 1/2 weeks and we of course have not had sex or done anything, well nothing for me but I can not wait. On the other hand I am scared.

6 weeks, first time :(

If I could give any advice it would be "don't panic" if it doesn't go well the first time. After 2 years of painful sex, I was expecting sex to be fantastic when I got the OK to have sex. It hurt and was very disappointing. So I completely freaked out thinking I'd ruined sex forever for both of us and bought every lubricant on the market. I'm happy to report that the second time we attempted it was much better. Have your hubby take it slow and relax. I am so glad that it was better. I was really depressed and now I feel better about it. Good luck. It takes time and patience. Don't panic and don't give up!

Bailey... sending hugs THANKS

Yeah, I'm beginning to wonder if I'm ruined here... I have too much going on, nothing works, it's getting me down.
I did call my doc, and I now have cream... it's suppose to help the healing... cause, I did bleed (unpleasant ) and help with the whole picture, too.
I don't know when I will b e able to work the nerve up to try again, but I will for my hubby.. he at least deserves to be able to have sex, for goodness sakes...

Glad the seccond time went well. About the lube, omg.. we used tons the first time, that's why I was so upset that this didn't work. grrr

take it "easy"

Hi Fit

You do what you feel comfortable with. You know your body best, and everyone's experience is different. My first time burned a little at the beginning, but then was fine. The second time was better than before surgery. You just never know. Just try to be relaxed, and don't beat yourself up if it's not all fireworks and marching bands the first time. Best of luck to you!

I'm 10 days post op and wondering if you had been able to orgasm before the 6wks waiting period if it also hurt you? If this too personal i will understand. I'm just scared also because I have been told that will make you not heal all the way? have you heard this?

I did outer play and had an orgasm at 4 weeks and it was wonderful!! It was longer and more intense.
I have had intercourse at 5weeks (Drs ok'd) and it didn't hurt at all! We too took it slow but didn't have to use an lube. I was scared but it well worth it for me!
Good Luck!!!

I think like everything else on this journey a lot depends on your own body, it depends on the type of surgery you had too. If you have a cuff (they took the cervix and stitched up your vagina) you are likely doing a good deal of healing up there at 10 days. I've had one, and it didn't hurt, but it was more like 4 weeks out too. If you have a 2 week post-op with your doc, ask what they think, if not, maybe call and ask. You know what your pain level is, you know what your body is saying, it will let you know when it's ready!

We ask dr. at the hospital and my dr. said outerplay was ok after 2 weeks. at 15 days i ask my dh if he was interested...he said he was just waiting on me.
and it was all good.

Libra25- now if i could just get past the thinking about..." the car not fitting in the garage" -but you did add to keep practicing - thats good too.
