So, in preparation for having LLETZ I was advised that I would need to abstain from sex for 4 weeks afterwards. It makes sense, but... A month is a really long time. Now I'm also seeing things about 6 weeks abstinence, and stuff about some ladies not being able to have sex for several months after...?!
Had anyone else been really upset about this and struggled with it?
It's been 8 days since I last had sex (LLETZ was on weds) and I'm feeling really frustrated. Sex is extremely important to me, it makes me feel alive, and is how I express myself as a woman, etc... but here's the thing...
I can deal with 4 to 6 weeks abstinence, if I am still able to have *some* form of sexual intimacy with my OH. Even if it's just something ordinary like having a shower together, whatever. The thing is, the only time we have any sexual intimacy is when we do the whole thing, if that makes sense. There's no inbetween. So for 6 weeks, I'm going to have no affection at all. (Yes he does hug me, gives me a peck on the lips, but you know what I mean) I would be happy with some nice skin to skin makeout sessions until we can go the whole hog again..
How can I express this need? I do understand that from a Male point of view, if you start ANY kind of sexy activity, even just snogging, the natural progression is of course intercourse and therefore its frustrating when you cannot allow that natural progression. So the logical solution is to just keep totally switched off so not to get frustrated.
Am I weird for wanting to compromise and be intimate without doing the whole thing in the meantime? I can't really imagine going 6 weeks without being touched at all.
