Hello! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JustAnswer.
Thank you for the question. I will be with you in a moment.

Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 14 days ago.

I understand your concern.

Was there any complication during or after surgery?

Are you taking antibiotics?

Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 14 days ago.

As a general rule, it's recommended not to have penetrative sex till 4 weeks or till the time there's no discharge. The recovery is relatively early in laproscopic surgery and as long as the wounds from ports have adequately healed, there should be no problem in having soft sex. Try not to have deep penetrative sex for now as that may delay healing process.
