I had a partial hysterectomy 13 yrs ago, after hitting menopause after the birth of twins. While having a shortened vaginal canal and scar tissue for a cervix did have an undesirable effect on my sex life, it was 5 yrs after that my hormones completely bottomed out and took my sex drive with it. Fast forward from the age of 27 to 40. I found Thrive and have lost a little bit of weight, sex drive has come back like a horny teenager, and I actually crave to be touched. I do t know what changed, maybe the weight loss, maybe because the hot flashes are gone, maybe it is because I sleep better at night.

Life after a hysterectomy or menopause does happen. Hopefully not everyone has to wait 13 years, as I did

I had a hysterectomy in my 20's due to endometriosis. I wish I had known then what I know now. They left an ovary and everything was fine until I went through early peri and full menopause. I felt like this was not life and really just wanted to die. No sex drive...totally dry....depressed..anxious....etc. I was on anti depressants and anti anxiety meds as well as Lipitor for cholesterol

When I was about to give up I discovered sub dermal bio-identical hormone pellets (estrogen and testosterone) that are implanted every three months in my butt cheek and sublingual progesterone. I feel great. I am on no medications except the hormones, armour thyroid and vitamins.

I was in my late 50's when I found the solution. Mood is good, cholesterol is normal, desire is through the roof, moisture is awesome. Skin is thicker and softer..hair is better. Weight went down some. It is awesome.

Every woman should have a hormonal baseline done at puberty and then after each baby they should be re-taken and then at menopause.

Its not always just low sex drive. You have to take into account how many nerves they cut through as well...some regenerate, some don't in some women. About 40% of women who have a hyster have some sort of sexual dysfunction, it can be no sex drive, anorgasmia, pelvic floor tightening, lack of sensation, lack of lubrication, and many more.

Wow, I am so surprised to see so many ladies have a low sex interest, drive following your hyster. I thought my wife was the only one that it happened too. Quess I need to back off and understand what she is and has gone through.

BC pills have actually been a godsend for me. My estrogen was so high that I had near constant migraines...like 5 days out of 7. My androgens were so high that I had HORRIBLE, painful, ugly cystic acne and mega-oily skin. I got seriously depressed. Being 40 years old with a constant headache and acne worse than when I was a teen was really hard to deal with emotionally. Not to mention the cramping and bleeding that would happen whenever.

Going on spironolactone and BC pills turned my life around. My acne started going away within a week! My hormones leveled off and I could go a week without waking up in agony every with a headache.

The lack of libido side effect didn't start to kick in until the last 2 years which unfortunately also corresponds with my dad having a massive stroke and me being thrust into the role of caregiver. Related? Oh probably. Just can't feel sexy after bathing and toileting my dad and getting maybe 2 hours of sleep at night. Know what I mean?

I never have a problem with my sex drive while on ovacon 50mg. Was my pill of choice for about 10 years. No side effects to it at all. That low dose stuff they gave me later? Had to take 3 which made me feel ill :(

I would think anything would be better than taking all that birth control. A regular dose was miserable for me. I had no desire for sex - or people in general. I was totally flat emotionally. I wouldn't think that a hysterectomy could mess you up much more than the birth control pills and all the physical crap you are already going through.

I'm so sorry you're having to go through all of this, PG. That is ROUGH. I've been thru bleeding episodes where I would be taking 3 BC pills a day to control bleeding, too. Made me feel AWFUL; woozy and nauseous and constant headaches.

I had asked about ablation years ago, but was told because of my uterine deformity, ablation was out of the question. I've been considering a hyst for years now. I was always holding out hope that menopause would come early for me, but it doesn't look like it.

I'm already having a hard time with my hormones now. I have virtually zero libido...which makes being involved in the lifestyle really "challenging". (I'd much rather binge-watch "Breaking Bad" than even think about having sex.) I've tried topical testosterone and it did nothing. I think my SHBG is just so high (because of the BC pills) that any and all T is quickly bound up. I'm trying Nettle tea, but it's probably pointless.

Not in pain anymore well at least not if I continue to do PT stuff. Just like Lily Von Shtupp, everything below the waist is kaput! Sexually frustrated because I still desire sex, but ain't nothing there so to speak.

It will be a long time before I get to try out the procedures I'd like to try, always seems to be other things to take up our money, like replacing our car that has 290,000 miles on it.
