How Long Do I Have to Wait to Have Sex After Vaginoplasty?

Considering that one of the biggest benefits of vaginal rejuvenation is increased pleasure during intercourse, you might be wondering how long you have to wait after the treatment to have sex. In order for the vagina to have enough time to heal, we will advise to wait at least 6 weeks prior to engaging in intercourse. But even though you need to take a little time off, vaginal rejuvenation promises long-lasting benefits that make the recovery time totally worth it. 

Vaginal rejuvenation, also referred to as feminine rejuvenation or vaginoplasty, is surgery that involves reducing the size of the vaginal opening, removing excess or loose vaginal tissue, and restoring structural tissues in the vagina. When performed by an experienced board-certified surgeon like Dr. Shashoua, it’s a surgery (under anesthesia) that typically takes about two hours to complete. 

So where does the better sex come in? By tightening the vagina – or, decreasing the caliber of the vagina – patients can expect increased sensation during sex. In fact, this is a big reason why women seek out vaginal rejuvenation in the first place. Vaginal looseness isn’t just uncomfortable; it can be a significant detriment to your sex life.  

Though you’ll have to wait a few weeks to reap the benefits, abstaining from sex is the biggest restriction you’ll have throughout recovery. Patients will also be advised to take off 2 weeks from work to recover as well. If you’re concerned about experiencing pain during that time, don’t worry: during the postoperative period, patients will be given pain medication to alleviate any discomfort and help them resume their day-to-day activities. While the pain management plan varies from patient to patient based on the extent of the surgery, we have a provider available 24/7 to help address any concerns in real-time. 

It’s very common for women to experience vaginal laxity as a result of both age, genetics and childbirth.
