huge changes after hysterectomy to sex life for me, and not for the better. I retained my cervix and one ovary, removal of uterus, fallopian tubes, one ovary. I have been to Physical Therapy for several months several times a week, and am currently looking into some very pricey, not covered by insurance things to possibly help. Strong libido, so that isn't an issue for me.

If you are not going to die if you do not have a hyster, I personally wouldn't recommend having one, others mileage will vary.

Need some insight into after hysterectomy sex. I ve been on HRT for years (love it) and I"ll continue. Just wondering if you or your partner see a difference in intercourse..ie.. no cervix…etc. Also recovery time. Mine will be robotic surgery.

Southern, A woman's choice to have a hysterectomy is very personal and she usually received lots of information. What is not freely given, are the many side effects from having one.

TAH-BSO which is what you will be having is basically the same as a man having his testicles and prostate removed. So you can imagine the symptoms of no estrogen and testosterone.

You will be slammed into surgical menopause pretty much immediately. I agree, get on the patch or some kind of hormone quickly. However, remember that estrogen does not work alone. We need Testosterone to be in balance with estrogen.

Imagine a car with the oil but no gas. No matter how long, how hard you push on the gas pedal (clit) or how much you wish the car would go, it won't. It has no gas (testosterone).

Please do NOT let your doctor try to convince you that you do not need testosterone. It's simply not true. So, I recommend getting Estrogen and Testosterone in the form of creams, gels, troches, sublinguals or pellets as soon as you are healed and are able.

Please email me if you want more information or want to join my bioidentical hormone yahoo group or FB group. You will find wonderful support from many women.

Good luck. Take care of yourself, let your family and friends pamper you and do for you. You are having major surgery that will take time to heal and you need plenty of rest and support.

Just remember, sex can be better than ever and you can feel better than ever after hysterectomy as long let yourself heal properly, take care of yourself and you give your body the hormones it needs.

Again, please don't hesitate to email me for information or support.

Some of your posts made me have tears (no Akron, not Hump's) in my eyes.

I'm also stealing the quote.

This is a good subject and a good way to weed out about love/sex/times of abstainance and times of reconnection. Thanks. i understand now why sometimes my husband is very gentle with his approaches; it's out of respect for whatever weird thing I'm going through, or have been through, not out of lack of desire for me. We talked about this extensively after my mom and one of my best friend's died. I kind of pulled away a bit, as he did also when his mom died. It's self protection: you don't want to think about also losing the very person who means the most to you, so you pull away a bit. We understood that with each other. The strange thing about that is that that's when I need sex/touch/desire the most but didn't, at the time, know how to express that. Now I do. And now I'm not afraid to.

CHI...I'm glad the hyst was a positive experience for you. Leaving your ovaries allowed you to continue to enjoy the many benefits of estrogen and testosterone. It sounds like you had a great doctor that was experienced in sparing the nerves. Many times, even though the ovaries are left in, there is nerve damage and they don't function well and quit producing E and T. You are one of the lucky ones.

I'm glad I had the hyst too. I just wish doctors were better about recognizing the need for Testosterone as well as Estrogen. I might have avoided a 16 year period of of getting old and not caring about sex. Thank goodness that time is over!

Well Hump, I must share this with you. Many years ago my brother-in-law's (then) wife died of MS. As the story came out to Bacchus and I while helping the immediate and long term grief, he hadn't touched her in several years. Not her wiliness, his was the issue. However, the last couple years of her life, he touched someone else. She died, he did really love her, poof!!! he spent the next few years impotent. Funny how life works.

I had a partial hysterectomy to get back to the subject. It did not change my sex drive, did not change sex with my husband (or others). Every now and then, since I kept the ovaries, there is a small and I mean small amount of discomfort. The size of a pin head tiny. I asked the hubby after the first time if it felt any different to him, he said no. I believe some women get it in there head they are no longer a woman. I am a better woman. I can fuck ANYTIME I want. I can travel anytime I want. I can sleep through the night. I don't need to pass on a good date night. It is the best thing I ever did for myself. I am still horny all the fucking time. What it didn't do was get rid of that little poof of a stomach from when I was pregnant. PBLTH. Again, no regrets at all, best thing I ever did. Best of luck with it!
