Resumed intimacy before cleared

Well ladies, I hate to say this but I defaulted last night and couldnt resist the urge. Just hit my 3 weeks and I know better but wow the urge was too undeniable, it was great and we did take things super slow and easy. It didnt hurt at all and I sure had felt a weight lifted off my shoulders. So forgive me everyone for not waiting but everyone talked about four weeks and I couldnt wait anymore. I tried to so hard not to and resisted for so long.

Take care and good luck!

Thanks, I know I shouldnt have but being young and being in love is so hard to resist. I guess if I hadnt had such a desire that I wouldnt have even thought about it. I was worried the first few minutes but when I realized it didnt hurt we just took it slow and it went great. I hope everyone can have a good experience, just make sure its what there body says they can handle and if it says to stop then do it.

Good luck to you and I hope its great for your first time when ready.

Hi Ladies,

Oneright - I'm really glad all is well with you, but please be careful. Everything I'm reading on this seems to say it's ok.

DH and I did it after 6.5 weeks AND the OK from the doc. We heard and felt something pop in the middle of the "act". We were slow and careful too. I was in severe pain with bleeding and the doc said I probably popped the vaginal cuff. I am to be off my feet and we now have to wait another 8 weeks....! Everything hurts again. I hate to be a damper on such a positive thread, but please be careful.

I know my case is unusual - perhaps i am just a slow healer and all the other threads I've read on this subject have been extremely positive, and 99% did not have problems. We too fought the urge since the first week, but now we are just going to have to court and date again, going to the other bases, without the home run...8 more weeks of waiting...uugghhh.

It is nice to hear we are all in the same boat. Thank "God" we are normal. I was worried if I would get the urge after surgery. It feels good to know that I am alive, YEAH!!! I hope I have the patience for the next 3 weeks. Good luck to us all!!!!!!

(((Sisters))), it's perfectly normal to wonder how post-op sex is going to be. It's one of the biggest concerns we have and of course our partners share that concern.

Please remember that it's very important that each Sister call her own doctor to get this important clearance. Some doctors are more strict than others with good reason. Not everyone has had the same type of hysterectomy, we don't all heal at the same rate and some have had more extensive repairs than others. To assume that it's okay to resume any sort of sexual activity based on what someone else has done in her recovery isn't safe or responsible. You don't really want to risk your healing or risk an infection.

There are some articles which are good ones to read for a clear understanding of why it's so important to wait for the doctor to give the go ahead with any sort of sexual activity. Here are the links:

Sex - Do I Really Have to Wait Six Weeks?

Sex - Post-Op Libido and Sexual Activities

Post-Op Sex Checkpoint

Best wishes to all as you heal and ease back into your normal activities as your own doctor allows.

Hi, Rennyri
Boy Do I Have A Very High And Over Active Libido, But Myself and my DH Has Found Away To Still Have Intimacy, We Inbrace with nothing on and have very, very, safe sex, Oh My God!! That Feel Like Heaven, Like some of the other sisters said, I feel like a teenager again, The Caressing and holding each other has been so great, It just hightens the leavel of can't wait for the dr's release date 4/10. This Is ALL We Both Think About, Just Walking by each other we touch or kiss each other with such passion, or sitting by each other on the couch we sit really close to each other, It really feels like when we first started dating , We will be celebrating our 25th aniversery this year, and believe it, I am Just 40Yrs, Old.(Smile) I Hope This Is Not (TMI) Life Is Good And God Has Blessed Us Thus Far. We can do it.. Amen Sisters!!!

Oneright---one of the reasons the dr wants you to wait is because of bacteria entering before the tissues are healed. Just keep a watchful eye and I can't blame you either.

Thanks, I know I shouldnt have but DH was doing doing th same and my desires couldnt hold out any longer. I will be careful and will be aware if anything arises that I should worry about.
