Probably not. You have not completely healed, there is an increased chance of infection. Sex can wait...Don't risk your life! That is the only body god gives, take care of it. If he can't deal with that, then shame on him.

i don't see what would be wrong with oral sex.
You could give him the old hand job, if I were you I wouldn't have anyother sex other than that for the time being, it's just to soon.

Just my 2 cents. Wink

Wouldn't Risk It
2 weeks after my vaginal hysterectomy, I had this intense longing for my husband. For almost a week we played around both orally and touching each other until we couldn't stand it and he literally slipped in. I can't tell you of the ramifications for it just happened this evening, thus i'm up and worried about it. I'm ashamed to tell my doctor but I feel I probably better. Has anyone had intercourse after 3 weeks, did anything happen because of it. I wish we wouldn't have begun "teasing" each other, I even suggested we start sleeping in seperate beds. Geez, will the next 3 weeks ever get here???

I know how you feel, I just had mine a wk and 2 days ago!!! And I can't wait to be able to have sex with my husband again!!! They just don't understand it seems like those 6 wks will never get here!!! For some reason I feel extra horny, maybe it's bc I want to remember what it's lik before all the pain started!!!! And I don't know what to do? My husband understands & waits to wait till we get the ok, but I just don't know if I can!!!! Is that weird?

I had an 8" incision across my bikini line for my hysterectomy. I had a very difficult and long 8 week recovery. I waited till the 8 weeks was up and when we finally did it, the pain was horrible. Please know, that you are not healed properly. Nothing is worth messing up your stitches and wounds.

They don't tell you 6 weeks just to deprive you of sex. There is a very good reason...you need to heal.

I'm ready to have sex with my husband and it's been 1 wk and 2 days! I'm still a Lil sore but I was told by my dr nothing internally only clitoral stimulation:( I feel great and my external incisions are healed but my internal check up is n 4 wks. It's worth the wait to not tear myself up! He's also willing to wait but I want more than that!! After 6 wks if it's healed inside I'm clear. I would wait for sex till u have confirmation that it's ok, so my husband and I are like newly weds again with heavy petting, just no penetration!

Sexual intercourse post Abdominal Hysterectomy
I had my surgery 4 weeks ago and it has been really hard to resist my husband. He really has been doing great but, I just had our 5 month old twin boys and he had to wait then too. Yesterday I was just tired of giving head and hand jobs so I gave in. Let me tell you right now, I fully regreted it and was in pain for the next 8 hours. The pain has since resolved its self but ladies trust me when I tell you, wait, wait, wait.

Is it only me or are everyone else more well, horney than usual. I had my historectomy 2 and half weeks back. But cant take it anymore. Glad to hear oral sex is in order. Wait till i get a hold on him. Hope I stay like this, after 18yrs of marraige we were a bit laking in the sexual department. I almost feel asif we're still dating with the way I want my husband nowadays.

It has been 5 wks since my hysterectomy. And I ended up giving in this morning. But it was very quick and easy and yet of course I am freaking out wondering if I'm ok. I'm like a lot of women on here too I don't wanna tell my dr cuz I'm afraid to. But I'm not hurting it anything I had a light pink color of blood come out not much and that's all. So I'm hoping I'm ok. There will definitely be no more for another week cuz I'm too scared now. I will worry myself to pieces for the next week.

Hi MamaJ5488...I think we were short of the 6 weeks too...However, I would now wait until your exam...I know when I did go in that he found a raw spot and had to cauterize it...Not to worry if he has to do this as it is painless...Either way I am happy all is well...Take care...

intercourse after hysterectomy
Should have never gon to the internet. I'm 4 weeks post op, full hysterectomy, abdominal. Had intercourse this afternoon. Took it soft and slow. Odd thing is I actually felt better afterwards. No pain, no bleeding. My only big concern now is infection after reading all the comments about semen and bacteria. That I'm worried about...and wished I could have held out. But I couldn't restrain myself...lol

sex after hysterectomy
I am 5 weeks and 2 days from having my robotic hysterectomy. My husband and I had sex today. He was so afraid he didnt put hisself in me all the way and he didnt cum inside me. Now, reading all the stories about possible infection, im scared to tell my dr. I had no bleeding and no pain but it did feel weird. I asked him to lets have sex once more but he wouldnt. He said he feels bad that he gave in earlier today.

After having sex with my husband, my legs were extremely sore the next day and i had a very small pain in my abdomen. I relaxed and didnt do anything except brush my teeth, shower, and use the restroom...nothing else. He cleaned, cooked, washed clothes, etc. I feel better. No more pain. We actually had sex again today. This time there was no abdominal pain but my legs hurt. I couldn't help myself. Maybe relaxing and doung absolutely nothing for a few days will help.
