Question: Hymenectomy Question

 sjane - Sun Aug 07, 2005 5:42 pm

I had a hymenectomy performed Monday, August 1st. I was wondering how long I should abstain from having oral sex performed on me, as long as I am not feeling any pain. I know there are stiches inside, so I was wondering if germs getting in could be a problem.

User avatar There are many many germs in the human mouth, I would recommend until the sutures are out (or dissolved) you abstain from it, just to be safe.
