The Right Time For Postoperative Intercourse Outside The Womb?
Good evening, I want to ask when my wife and I could have intercourse … after my wife, I had a pregnancy surgery outside the womb … thank you.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Intercourse is an activity that requires a lot of movement and for people who have just had surgery, this movement may be quite difficult and can even delay healing. So it is better that after any operation, the partner does not immediately have intercourse.
Regarding your wife's condition, we cannot determine with certainty because the speed at which people heal is different. But in general, it takes several weeks, about 3-6 weeks before a person is allowed to have sex again. This figure can of course change depending on your wife's condition, therefore, we recommend checking with the doctor who treats your wife. You can ask this at your next wife's control opportunity. Or if your wife is no longer in control, the rule is when your doctor tells you that your wife can do her usual activities. If it is said that you can do your usual activities, that should also include having sex.
Then what must be considered is the possibility of getting pregnant again. Your wife does not take long to get pregnant again after surgery, so you should also think about this possibility when having sex. Usually women are advised not to become pregnant until 6 months after surgery, therefore, if you are going to have sex, make sure to use safety. So, hopefully it answers your question.
