No...: Suggest asking your surgeon how long to wait after surgery before safely engaging in any form of sexual intercourse.

I would not: I wouldn't do that. Talk to your surgeon. There are 3 different approaches for rectocele repair. Depends on your approach, however i'd caution you not to and speak with your surgeon.
