How long after your hysterectomy do you have to wait to have sex?

6 weeks. The usual recommendation is to avoid vaginal intercourse, or anything in the vagina for 6 weeks. This allows the stitches at the top of the vagina to heal properly. Clitoral stimulation, if it is comfortable, is safe before 6 weeks. Orgasm, because it causes contraction of pelvic muscles, may pull on healing tissue and might be uncomfortable in the weeks after pelvic surgery.
6 weeks. If the entire uterus is taken at the time of hysterectomy, then there is an incision at the top of the vagina that needs to heal for 6 full weeks before having sex. If the cervix was left in place during hysterectomy then it may be possible to have sex 2 weeks after a hysterectomy.
