Welcome to ehealthforum.
It usually takes about 4-6 weeks for the internal sutures and wounds to heal completely after hysterectomy. Avoid masturbation/intercourse until your doctor/gynecologist clears you. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for thorough evaluation and further assistance/clarification.
Take care.
