sex after davinci

Hi everyone! This is my first time posting something on this site. I will say this site has helped answer many of my questions but I have not found an answer to this...I am six weeks post op from a davinci hysterectomy. I went for my post op exam today and the doctor says everything looked good and healing properly. She then told me I had to wait another 6 weeks to have sex. My discharge papers and everything I have read said 6-8 weeks. When I asked her why she said just to be on the safe side. Has anyone else had their doctor tell them 12 weeks or heard of this?

That's What Your Dr. Said. It's For Your own benefit Anyway. Mine is 8weeks but I'm sure I'll ended up doing it longer Coz I'm scared. Some women here tried during six or eight weeks Then They said it hurt or there some bleeding after sex.. sound like Your Dr.just wanna make sure.

I had a davinci surgery and was told 12 weeks also. I have read other places that the vaginal stiching is not as tight so takes longer to heal.

The waiting part does not bother me... i'm kind of scared myself. I just had not heard anything before about waiting 12 weeks and didn't know if that was normal.

I assume they removed your cervix and made a vaginal collar? That would explain the extra time. If you keep your cervix it can be a lot sooner.

I went to my six week check up and my doctor told me to wait until 8 weeks because I still had some stitches in the vaginal cuff. My hubby wants to wait longer. Maybe its a good idea

I would say it is best to wait. My husband is all for waiting. He doesn't want to mess anything up or cause additional problems that I will pay for later! I am having some mild cramping since my exam yesterday which kinda makes me more concered about having sex again
