    THIS PAST FEB 2, I HAD MY THIRD CYSTOSCOPY DONE AND I HAVE A COUPLE OF STRICTURES/BLOCKAGES IN MY URETHRA AND MY LADY AND I JUST HAD INTERCOURSE THIS PAST 8TH AND 9TH OF FEB, I WAS WONDERING HOW LONG ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO WAIT BEFORE HAVING SEX??? AS OF 2DAY I NOTICED MY URETHRA FEELING REAL SORE AND MY BLADDER FEELS INCOMPLETE AFTER VOIDING. CAN I HAVE DONE MORE DAMAGE 2 MY URETHRA? I SAW MY URO YESTERDAY, BUT I 4GOT 2 ASK HIM ABOUT INTERCOURSE.

    Dont worry it is very very unlikely you have done any damage! There is no set time to how long you should wait to have sex its just as and when its comfortable which is different for everyone.

    These symptoms you are having are very common after a cystoscopy and I have then everyday with IC anyway so I know how frustrating it feels for you!!! :-(
    For me it took 6 months for my bladder/uretha to really calm down but for some people it can be a few days. I still had sex though but just stopped if it became painful.
    I think it might be wise just to rest for a few days and drink lots of water. I am sure it will settle soon but I am sure you havent done any harm

    take care
    Started with symptoms 2004 after a severe infection.
    Was diagnosed with IC Feb 2006 after cystoscopy.
    Diagnosed with vulvodyina and PN in july 2006.
    Dignosed with ME and IBS Oct 2006.
    Currently taking Amytriptaline 50mg, regular pain killers and birth control!
    Also doing IC diet and regular use of heat packs.
    Still struggling with IC and controling my symptoms so looking for some help

    also recently had abnormal pap, CIN III and just had LEEP done 2007

      I agree, I do not think you cold have caused any damage.

        There is hardly any chance you did any damage... I think things are just irritated right now, and it will get easier and easier to have sex as time goes on

        *Diagnosed with severe IC in 2004
        *Also diagnosed with PFD, fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, IBS, migraines, allergies/asthma, dermatographism
        *Kept trying a million different treatments for all these things until I found what works, and I am doing okay these days with the help of a cocktail of medications and the InterStim, which was first placed in 2007. [I have had 2 revisions - one in 2010 when my battery died and had to be replaced, and one complete replacement (lead and generator) in 2012 after a fall on my stairs caused my lead to move.]
        *Current meds include Atarax (50mg at night), Lyrica (150mg twice a day), Xanax (0.5mg at night and as needed), Zanaflex (4mg at night), hydrocodone (10/325, every 6 hours as needed), Advair, Nasonex, Singulair (10mg at night), oral contraceptives, home instills containing Elmiron and Marcaine (as often as I need to do them).
