A Major Question - When Can You Have Sex after Weight Loss Surgery?

My husband loves me; he loves me a lot. That's why when right after they wheeled me into the recovery room after my weight loss surgery, he didn't hesitate to ask me the most important question on his mind. “When can we have sex?” I know; don't be a jealous. He's such a romantic. God surely spent a great deal of time on him.

Perhaps that's the difference between men and women. When I woke up, I was making sure that I truly was alive, and that all my organs that were not supposed to be touched during he surgery, had not been touched. He of course had other concerns. Nevertheless, being the sexually repressed nut that I am, I found his concern for me to be strangely arousing.

In a sense, we were both screwed. Even though the doctor had performed my surgery via laparoscopy, without ripping my body open for those who don't know what laparoscopy is, I had still just come out a traumatic surgery. I would need to wait until my doctor said it was okay.

After about five weeks, the doctor said that I was good to go. Before I proceed with own personal story, don't assume that you will be ready for sex five weeks after your weight loss surgery. The “return to normal” release dates vary, depending on the person, the type of surgery, and other medical related issues.

Your release date could be sooner or later. It is very important to note that any activities which place strain on the body can increase healing times and tear incisions, if they are performed too soon. If your husband is rushing you, give him a magazine and introduce him to two of his best friends that he has apparently forgotten, Mr. Left Hand and Mr. Right Hand. Sometimes, you have to be cruel to save yourself.

As soon as my doctor returned my “passport to pleasure”, I was more than ready to go on several different adventures. Oh, the stories I could tell, but I won't because I'm a good girl. I did make a point to pay attention to my body as I traveled though.

If I had experienced any pain, unexplained shortness of breath, or other symptoms (that your doctor will share with you), I would have stopped what I was doing right away, no matter what state my husband or I was in.
Needless to say, everything wasn't fantastic, but I did pay attention. I was not going to be in the ER explaining what I was doing right before my heart attack. I'm a school teacher, dangit! I have a reputation to uphold.

Since I knew that getting pregnant while I was experiencing a dramatic weight loss wasn't a good idea (as it could be dangerous for both me and the baby), my husband and I used birth control devices until I got my weight stable. Despite how silly we both are, safety is of the utmost importance to my husband and I. Waiting wasn't easy for either of us, but it was worth it. It made the first time after weight loss surgery seem like a second honeymoon. Sometimes not having something, makes you appreciate it a whole lot more.
