Hello,

Yes you could start having sex 4 to 6 weeks post surgery but till then strong jerky moments should be avoided.

Please answer waiting.

It was laparoscopic. And I’m asking about anal sex specifically. Every so often my husband and I engage.

Brief Answer:
Post 4 weeks.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

You can do anal sex after 4 weeks post laparoscopic surgery.
But try to increase things gradually.

Ask your husband to try first calmly and if things remain ok you could proceed as per your wish.

Hope this helps your query.

Regards,
Dr. Ramesh Kumar, Gastroenterologist
