Welcome to ehealthforum,
Internal healing takes about 6-8 weeks and you should avoid sexual contact or activity that can cause abdominal pressure and suture rupture/wound dehiscence, etc. Follow the post-op instructions given and avoid sexual contact or activities that can be harmful unless you get clear ticket from your doctor/gynecologist. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
