No Sex Drive after Hysterectomy

From the Intimacy After Hysterectomy Articles List

SHARING IS CARING


Woman worried about lack of sex drive after hysterectomyI had my hysterectomy a few years ago and kept one ovary, now I have absolutely NO sex drive. What can I do?


Women often notice a strong surge in sexual desire shortly after their hysterectomy, only to have a sharp decline later. This can definitely be worrisome, but there is still hope to regain your libido.

If your libido has taken a sharp decline, this is the time to make an appointment with your doctor to discuss the issue.

If you are uncomfortable talking about intimacy, it may help to take a list of questions and conversation starters about Female Sexual Dysfunction to help the discussion go smoothly and make sure you get all your questions answered.

When you schedule your appointment, be prepared to consider having your hormone levels checked to make sure they are balanced. Estrogen levels are often prescribed on the low end to start with, especially for younger women, but sometimes a slight increase in estrogen is all it takes for libido to return. If that doesn't work, sometimes testosterone helps.

Don't lose hope. It may take some time, but you can regain your libido and enjoy your intimate life once again.
