During the recovery period, the patient is not yet allowed to have a sexual intercourse for six weeks. She is not also allowed to perform strenuous activities during that period. The full recovery may take about three months.
If the procedure works, the vagina and its muscles will be tighter. However, there are cases where patients may face the risks of infection, scarring, pain during sexual intercourse, loss of pleasure or sensation, and an inability to control the leakage of urine.
