I had the CL and a small portion at the bottom opened up. I waited until it was completely healed over. So it was 3-4 weeks after surgery.

Can more people give feedback on this? :) I'm going to see my long distance boyfriend ~3 weeks after. It seems like there are mixed messages regarding whether sex will be no big deal, or probably not a good idea. I know everyone is different. I'm 23 and in good shape and my PD isn't particularly severe (don't get me wrong, it's a total b**** as they all are, but I guess not like a lot of the horror stories on here)
Clumsy, what type of surgery did you have? I think it's a little bit different with open wound excision.
I haven't had surgery yet, but it'll be cleft lift 2nd week in April and then I'm wondering how soon after that I'd be likely to be able to have sex!
I wouldn't rush it. You can do other things than PIV. I can tell you that the first week and most of the following week sex was the furthest from my mind. I wasn't in pain the second week but def. sore. You can always try, and if it hurts, stop.
I'll do that, ellysparkles. I definitely wasn't counting on the first two weeks, but was hoping after that I could at least take a shot at being on top... we'll see.
Better know we're down for the count for a few weeks now and be done w it, than to be down for the count with NO WARNING every few months for the foreseeable future!
