Internal exam?

I expected my surgeon to conduct an internal vaginal examination to check my cuff at 6 weeks but he didn't. Has anyone been internally examined??? I wish I knew if it was healed. Sex would be so much easier to approach!

Re: sex question

Optimus,
My doctor at almost 4 weeks said that it would be way too soon. I'm going back to see her on the 7th of December. So that would be my 7 th week mark.

If I were you, I'd call and ask him to check....... That would be one less thing for you to worry about! "Peace of mind" is everything when you go thru something like this!

Good luck!

My doctor is about 14 or 15 years younger than I am and looks like a "boy."

I sometimes feel uncomfortable asking him about sex.
To be honest, he answers the questions I have quite well.

I just have not come to terms with the fact that I am aging, and the doctors (male and female) are getting younger and younger, LOL.

My doctor told me that I could resume sex at 6 weeks. Since my check up wasn't till 7 weeks, I asked if I should wait till he saw me and he said no. It was fine. When I finally had my check up, he didn't do an internal examination.

Re: Internal exam?

I had a few complications post-op, so my doctor checked me vaginally at 1 week both manually, and very slowly and gently, and he also did a visual after cranking me open with that awful device. Not sure what it is called.

He said i was healing nicely!

Re: Internal exam?

I go for my 2 week post op next week and I really hope he checks me out! If it isn't already a part of the appointment I am going to ask him to anyhow because I would be too paranoid to wait til 6 weeks.

Re: Internal exam?

At my 6 week check up I had an internal examination.
Got the good news that my vaginal cuff wound had healed "perfectly". I walked out of there on air!

I do think an internal exam is appropriate if you have had your cervix removed.
It gives you some peace of mind knowing how things are in there!

Re: Internal exam?

I had a three week post op and she did an exam. I have no internal incisions either. My doctor says no sex for 8 but would prefer 12 weeks out. I wonder if that is the male vs female perspective. Funny.
