Sex after Lap and Dye


Title says it all really. I am due to have a lap and dye done on 16th Sept which will be cd10 (if AF arrives tomorrow) of my cycle. Normally OV around cd14/15 and was hoping to be able to bd after lap and dye as I know there can be increased chance of getting pregnant after this proceedure. Not sure if will be able too with op so close to OV. Can anyone share their experiences with me?

  • Hey Lizzy, my birthday is the 16th! My hsg is on thursdau and i'll be cd 16. I usually ov 20 and 21 (earliest ever is 16 and latest 28) so I am fully intending on going for it like a mad woman as soon as I get out of the hospital!

    I know some people say there is risk of infection but i've not been told this x x
  • Hi
    I had my HSG last wednesday and was quite sore for a few days after but that was because it look 3 attempts and i ended up having my cervix clamped as my uterus didnt like having the small catherter put into it. i was on cd7 when it was done so i have let the bruising ease before i have attempted to bd. I wasnt told there was a risk of infection either.
    Good luck with your procedure

  • Hi Kaz,

    Welcome to the site!

    Would be great to hear your experience as I have mine on Thursday and have butterflies just thinking of it as I find it very hard to relax! I was going to have some paracetomol before but considering codeine to knock me out a bit!x x
  • Hi Kas,

    Welcome. Hope your HSG went well.

  • Oh Hannah I really hope so although I will be OV'ing about 4 days after op so not sure if I will be able to ttc that soon but lets hope so xxxx
  • well there is no way i could have sex jus yet, but i'm only 2 days post op. i'm still so full of air. i feel like a bloody water bed, my tummy keeps swishing n gurgling, plus cuts are still sore. but i'm a proper wimp. hopefully you'll be able to ttc xxxx
