Should be OK: Usually we check the cuff (vaginal closure) at the 6 wk check to make sure it healed well & to check for granulation tissue. This is where tissue gets everted and can bleed easily with intercourse. If none was seen & healing was normal, i wouldn't worry about it unless you get increased bleeding or watery discharge. Give it a break for a week and then see what happens. Take care.
