Surgery to repair vaginal cuff. When is outercourse safe?

I am 4 wks post-op so obviously have not got the ok. In fact due to a opening of my vaginal cuff and hemorrage I required emergency surgery to repair, I am only 2 wks post-op from that. Dr. told me I must wait 6wks from that so I still have 4wks to go. Anyways my hubby and I are so impaitient, I was wondering is outercourse with orgasm safe? Am I risking opening stitches by doing that?

My GYN says any activity except penetration is safe, orgasm won't hurt you. So we have been doing everything BUT penetration, when I am feeling well enough.
But ask your dr if you are unsure.

I had sex with DH at 9 weeks and still had blood the next day. I will not have sex again until they determine what my discharge issue is. Orgasm not bad but the days afterward are awful....increased discharge and more foul odor....blood.

Nope no more

I'm sorry that you have had to have another surgery to repair your vaginal cuff. Understandably you're concerned about the possibility of further damage.

Whether or not you can safely have an orgasm is something only your own doctor can say. This is a question the doctors hear often so don't be shy about calling to ask. Hopefully your doctor will give you the all clear, which of course we can't. Only your doctor can determine what is and isn't safe for you at any point in your recovery.

Here are some articles to read on the subject which will help explain the importance of waiting for your doctor's clearance:

Best wishes as you continue to heal!

i'd definitely suggest calling your dr and asking before you do anything. you really dont want to take the risk of injuring the cuff again and causing another tear, scar tissue or infection.
