Slower is better: Adequate sexual lubrication, prolonged ( 15-20 minutes ) foreplay, position changes, verbal communication, massage and aromatherapy. Your cervix should be well healed by now and apparently, you did not have vaginal, only cervical surgery. Positions on your side or female on top will control depth of penetration and hopefully these hints will work.
