Do I need to wait for the oophorectomy wounds to heal before I masturbate?

I had to get an emergency surgery (oophorectomy) Saturday because of a cyst that cut off my blood circulation and killed them. I’m only 18, I’m still a Virgin, but I masturbate ( clitoris stimulantion only). Do I have to wait to heal before I masturbate?

General & Family Physician 's  Response

Patients with Oophorectomy surgery commonly take 2-3 weeks to recover. During this time avoid using tampons to prevent infections, do not lift heavy weights, wear cotton clothes.

Relax as you recover, refrain from sexual intercourse or masturbation for it may trigger abnormal amount of blood /discharge or abdominal pain.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

I had my left ovary removed on the 19th. They also removed a large amount of scarring from endometriosis. I came home the same day and have been on the mend since. My husband and I accidentally went too far and wound up having intercourse today. It has only been 13 days since my surgery, and I am worried because I found out after that I was supposed to wait longer. I am having some pain in my stomach, but nothing too severe. It was unprotected sex and there was no trying to stop his ejaculate from entering. I am worried that I could have caused damage.

I has a hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy July 28. after 6 weeks, I saw my doctor, she recommended that I wait 8 weeks before resuming sexual activities, so we did. I did not experience any pain the first time but after nine weeks, intercourse was extremely painful and I did pass some blood. I am now extremely blooded with some discomfort ; no blood though. What should I make of this?
