So ladies, this question is a bit personal,but then again so are a lot of things on this site. I have the unfortunate timing of my boyfriend being in japan during my surgery,he will be back about day 3 PO. He'll have been gone about 12 days total. Im already "in the mood" but i know i'm obviously going to be put in a different mindset after my TT tomorrow. However, I'm thinking after the drains are out in a week,i'm gonna be dying!!! Does any one have experiences or advice? I was thinking bending over/doggy or sidelying would be ok for comfort and no strain on the site....obviously nothing crazy,just slow and careful. sorry if this is TMI lol but im curious!!<3

I'm so frustrated. I'm 9 days po and I think I need sex to relieve this built up tension. My SO had been gone for three weeks prior to my tummy tuck so I'm way overdue.

I would recommend trying to do it "yourself" once. I did to test if the muscles contracting would hurt.

We started at 5 days po. Side lying from behind works best early on, and if he wants ti ring your bell either use a vibrator or good hands or something. Of course, having been through 8 pregnancies, we are pretty experienced at getting creative.

I am so ready, 3 weeks post op. Hubby wants to wait the 6 weeks as he doesn't want to be responsible for hurting me. I'm the one frustrated!

I waited a week to the day. Nothing acrobatic, but scissor style has worked great for us. I'm 16 days po now and haven't had any problems.

My husband and I did it "woman on top" on day 20. BIG mistake. I thought it would be ok because I was feeling great but the next day I was extra swollen and really sore in my lower abdomen to the point that I thought I had torn something. I'm closed for business for another month!!!!

I'm 9 days po and my husband leaves for work in 1 days for 3 weeks
So we did do it tonight. He layed horizontal me and I put my legs over his hips. I did not move he did all the work and was very gentle. I also still have both drains in so we were extra careful. I felt 0 pain and everything went smooth. Just be very slow and gentle.
