However, scar tissue is less likely to form after vaginal hysterectomy than abdominal hysterectomy. Please see your doctor if you are having any issues. ...Read more

Is it safe to masturbate after a vaginal hysterectomy? What will it feel like without uterine contractions?
Masterbation: Masterbation should feel the same. Uterine contraction plays little if any role in the sensory experience of orgasm. Pelvic muscles contract during orgasm to produce the "contractile feel". Less than 3% of all women require the uterus to achieve orgasm as it is clitoral stimulation that "works". A supracervical hysterectomy may be done if one can only orgasm with vaginal penetration. ...Read more

I am 7 days post vaginal hysterectomy with posterior andanterior repair. It still feels sore, specially when sitting. Isthis normal or am I too impatient?
The vaginal hysterectomy has the fastest recovery, if that was the only procedure done you would be feeling well at 7 days, maybe a little pressure.
The posterior repair has the longest recovery time, and you may be sore for up to one month. Hopefully your surgeon recommended some post operative wound care- sitz baths, etc.
If recovery doesn't seem right, call the surgeon. ...Read more
