Can you stretch the cuffed vagina?

I am all fit and ready to re-enter the new working world after 6, LH, march 5th. I have and can doanything i want to and am currently helping my dh out in the backyard raking and making way for a nice garden. I take my time and still do things slow but I am 90% healed and feel fine. I think that since I had a laproscopic tiny incisions that it was easier to heal up. My vaginal area is cuffed tight so that will there is only about 3 inches of room for the penis. Is it ok to just go ahead and have full penetration? Has anyone thought about if and when they can use the whole penis in there for sex??
I am trying to make this sound ok and not vulgar!!

Hi Donna!

This isn't an unusual concern. It's so common that there is an article in the Post-Op Articles about this very issue. Here's a link to it: Vagina - Hysterectomy Make it Shorter?.

Rest assured that your vagina should be able to adapt to accommodate post-op just as it did before your surgery.

You did a good job keeping your question within the PG rating of this site.

(((kat1426))), if you read the link in my reply to Donna, you should feel reassured that everything should be fine. Chances are very good that you and your partner are not going to notice any difference at all. The vagina isn't very long pre-op either--it is elastic and can stretch to accomodate before and after surgery.

Try not to worry, wait for your doctor's clearance and then be gentle when you resume intercourse.

Can you stretch the cuffed vagina?

i had sex again last night and you can literally feel that there is an end and my hubbie said that also. We cannot do it fully yet, if ya know what i mean, let the other ladies know. I don't hurt unless you are not totally lubed up, and please use caution, its just been under the knife!
thanks for your comment to KAT 1426.....donna

we were extra careful the first few times, and it has gotten better (other than the issue with a stitch poking DH once, LOL)
the only problem i have found now is when he ejaculates it runs out faster (sorry if that sounds gross, but how else to say it??)

Can you stretch the cuffed vagina?

My surgery was in November, and was a real concern for was very uncomfortable the first several times.....too short! It helped me to be on bottom...almost like it opened up in there! Anyway, just within the last month, I have noticed that it feels more like the way it used to size-wise. I had other women tell me that it took "awhile" for them, but I didn't know how long that my case, I can say after 6 months, things are relatively normal down there again in that regard.

I almost dr actually said specifically that it would feel "snug" for awhile, but it would stretch back out over time.

Good luck, ladies!!
