Should not be: With a simple mole removal, it should not interfere with sexual function. Furthermore your wounds should be sufficiently healed at six weeks to permit normal sex. Hypersensitivity or mild numbness immediately around the incision may be normal. However what you are describing does not sound typical. See your surgeon.
