Thanks for posting your query.
Diverticulum surgery does not affect the vaginal structures. It does not affect your ability to have sex, ability to conceive or childbirth.
Having intercourse after a gap of two years can be painful and mild bleeding can occur. There is nothing to worry. The pain will subside on its own after a few sessions. You can use K-Y jelly or petroleum jelly to decrease the pain and bleeding.
Do not worry. You will be able to enjoy your sex life.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
