Resuming Sex....

Hello again sisters. I go in for my six week check up next Thursday and DH and I are both hoping to get the green light to resume our sex life. I have read a lot of posts about bleeding after sex from the vaginal cuff. I know that we all are different, but just wanted to get an idea of how long that lasts and how heavy is the bleeding normally. I know that I can ask my Dr. but just wanted to get and idea from sisters who had been through it. The thought of the bleeding scares DH almost as much as me.

Be sure to talk to your doctor about resuming sex. I waited to the 8 week point. I did have some spotting...which really upset my DH. But it was only spotting. A mini-pad for a day and it never happened again.

Good luck

Hi Shannon,

Just wanted you to know that many sisters don't bleed at all. When DH and I resumed sex at 6 weeks, there was no bleeding. If it's bright red, you'll need to call the Dr. I'm glad you are waiting for the official "green light".

Make sure and have a lubricant handy...this will help a lot, if not only to help you relax more.

My very best to you...
