  • They are supposed to dissolve but you did have sex 3 weeks before the recommended time so I don't know what it is. I would just call your OB and ask. Don't be afraid or embarrassed to do so.

  • I have done told my doc i have been having sex and everything .. they only told me it could be where the doc didnt cut the sting short enough.. they didnt act too concern. i guess because im not hurting nor am i bleeding.. or having any funky dischrage so... i dont know.. but im still worried.. i keep looking and wondering and trying too see if i see anything wrng.,.

  • I would wait and have sex after your appt. I didnt have sex until after my 6 week visit because I was still in pain, we did oral though. Why dont you just do oral until atfer your appt. At least youre getting something!
