Hello, I had a full vaginal hysterectomy with vaginal anterior repair 3 weeks ago. I did experience some bleeding and pain after but feel well now. I know that I have to wait 6 weeks before I have vaginal intercourse, but want to know if I can try anal sex before.This seems to be a bit of a taboo subject and don't want to hinder the healing process.
Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. Since you had hysterctomy 3 weeks ago, it is advisable to wait for 1 week more before you indulge in anal sex. As long as the surgery didn't involve your anal canal, you should be fine but 3 weeks is lesstime for a major surgery like hysterectomyto heal. hence it is advisable to wait for few days more.Moreover the risk of introduction of infection is always there.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
