Question: Sex after Leep Procedure
|CuriousCat82 - Thu Aug 12, 2010 4:14 pm||
I just had a LEEP procedure on Aug. 6th and I was wondering (and hoping) if it is safe to have anal sex since I can not have vaginal intercourse for about two more weeks, after my follow up. Thank you!

While it is not specifically prohibited, there are risks inherent in anal sex because the mucous lining could tear more easily than the vaginal lining. Any tears are vulnerable to bacteria.
If you do this, be sure your partner is very gentle, you have plenty of lubrication, use a condom and stop immediately at any sign of pain.
