Endometrial ablation and masturbation

Patient: Can I masturbate a week after having endometrial ablation surgery?

Doctor: It is recommend that you avoid penetrative sexual activity (masturbation or otherwise) for 4-6 weeks after your endometr ial ablatian surgery or until specifically given clearance by your gynecologist to do so. This to minimize the effect of bleeding or development of infection as your uterus heals from this procedure.Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com
