Thanks for posting your query.

After a partial vaginal hysterectomy if everything is fine and there is no pain,bleeding,discharge then woman can resume intercourse after 4 to 5 weeks after affirmation from the treating doctor.

Usually if hysterectomy is done vaginally recovery time is earlier and normal routine activities can be performed after 6 weeks.

You can consider waiting for 10 days and then get an evaluation done from the treating doctor if healing process is fine.

Hope this answers your query.I will be available for follow up query if any.
