Resume Swimming After Cryosurgery
Had cervical cryotherapy on 09/30/14. Had sex on 10/28/14, once my OB/GYN said I can resume my normal life again. It's VERY painful! What should I do?
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. ...Read more

Great: With cryosurgery, the affected area is frozen, which destroys the tissue. How deep this goes depends on the length of the freeze, although there is a limit to that due to the warming effect of the circulation. A cone biopsy, now done by loop excision, removes the affected tissue in pieces. It has an advantage in that the margins can be examined by the pathologist. ...Read more
