Sex after sleeve surgery



Recommended Posts

I had surgery August 26th and my spouse has been asking for some type of "loving " for a few days. How long did you wait to make love?

6 months but only because I didn't have anyone to have sex with 😂 I asked the surgeon about this, he said 4 weeks because having him on top of you might cause hernia. Sitting on top of him might cause hernia. If you feel up for it, go for it - just take it a bit slow.

Soooo I noticed that us both laying on our sides worked well. For some reason sex has been kind of painful lately, but we also haven’t been doing it as often.

I think this is a serious and realistic topic. Thank you for addressing it! It’s important to maintain your positive connection with your husband and having sex goes with any healthy relationship. It’s part of life! I say follow what your doctor tells you, expect patience from your husband/wife, and don’t push yourself to uncomfortable limits. Bravo for having the courage to bring this subject to light.

My husband and I waited til week 3 or 4 when my incisions no longer hurt and my stomach didn't feel tightly sewn up inside. We obviously still went easy with it and doggy style worked out great. As silly as this sounds, beforehand, I was afraid that contracting my stomach muscles during orgasm would hurt or damage something but that wasn't the case at all. Hope you and your hubby have figured out what works for you!
