Question: After having surgery to remove a cyst on my ovary about 6cm big that had been mointered for a year,how long should I wait to be stimulated sexualy?
Answered by Dr. Chakravarthy Mazumdar 1 hour later
Brief Answer: Approx one month Detailed Answer: Hi, The literature does not put any limitation for sexual intercourse or stimulation post surgery. However as surgeons recommend one month to six weeks to resume the sexual intercourse after laparoscopy. If there is laparoscopic procedure they would put 'sound' probe via cervix into the womb, this might stretch the cervix and it takes 4 to 6 weeks to heal completely. So any surplus friction or injury via intercourse may bleed or hinder the healing. If it was an open surgery there is no restriction you can resume after 15 days or whenever you feel like. Hope this helps.

I have just had a laparoscopy hysterectomy having the uterus, left ovary , and cervix removed. Im 11 days post op and I have been dizzy since my surgery. I was hoping it would go away but it still here. I became anemic after the surgery so not sure if that has anything to do with it. My eyes seem blurry at times. My bowls seem very dark too almost black?? I am taking iron pills. Is this normal? will it fade?
