Hi there, I had the same thing done. Laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. They removed endometriosis, cyst on my fallopian tube and a polyp in the middle of my uterus. My papers said until I went for my 2 week checkup BUT I didn't wait that long. Hubby and I had sex about 10 days later.  If you feel like it, go slow and easy of course. You know what your body can handle. :)   Take Care! :)

Hey there!  You're welcome. :)  
Yeap I was absolutely fine. :)  My bellybutton felt tight for about 3 weeks but as far as having sex I was okay. :) I think you'll be fine. If it starts feeling uncomfortable just stop. Don't let "uncomfortable" lead to "painful".  But I don't think you'll have a problem at all. :)
I completely understand about not asking because of your mum.  My mom was in there with me also and it was embarassing!! lol
Take care hun! If you have anymore questions feel free to ask or message me. :)

My doctor-- an endo specialist and top notch surgeon make sure his patients know that they cannot have intercourse for two weeks-- here is his post surgery instructions:

Patients usually go home the same day of the laparoscopic surgery.  There may be a few occasions, such as persistent nausea/vomiting, pain control, or urinary retention, that a patient is kept overnight and sent home the morning after surgery.  Recovery is usually 1-2 weeks long.  Nothing should be placed in the vagina for 2 weeks, unless a total hysterectomy or any vaginal procedure has been performed.  Then nothing can be placed in the vagina for at least 6 weeks and until the surgeon has examined the patient after the surgery to ensure healing.  Driving is restricted to those in pain causing a slower, emergent reaction time while driving as well as those on narcotics for recovery.  If a larger procedure was performed, patients may be fatigued for 6-8 weeks, however, can usually resume normal activities after 2 weeks.  No heavy lifting of greater than 25 pounds for 4 weeks is generally recommended.

I tried a month after laparoscopic cyst removal and it was uncomfortable, then again a few weeks later (three days ago) and I'm in quite a lot of pain now and very swollen stomach, like I was three weeks post-op - maybe we weren't careful enough but I'm going to go easy now.  I thought after two months I'd be all better :( UTI to treat now as well.
