Hey all,
I just had my surgery on march the 4th and was wondering how long before sex would be ok. Not that i am interested in the slightest right now but I know my b/f will want some kind of an idea how long it may be before it will be safe, and not too painful. Thanks guys

i think you are supposed to wait 6 weeks, but you may not feel like it after then. And not to be vulgar, but you will probably not feel like having any pressure on your stomach for a few months, so you might have to be a little more "creative" lol.

Yeah, Summer is so may not feel like having any pressure on your stomach...Six weeks is about the standard time to wait I think.  That's always been about the norm for me.
