orgasm after hysterectomy???

Yes. I am 4 weeks post op. I haven't had the green light to go ahead with full blown intercourse yet but hubby and I have done some external stimulations and I have also done some (DIY) and I can tell you that the orgasm is still there and all parts are working fine. I had a TAH - I still have my ovaries but everything else was removed. Including the cervix and appendix.

Yes, fortunately it is just as good as before. At first it felt "different" (still good but different) and now at 4 months post-op it feels just as good. Initially we used lubricant, which we never did before, but this last time we didn't need it. It really seems to vary from woman to woman -

orgasm after hysterectomy???

I had my post op on Monday and when the doctor told me that I could go ahead and have sex, he then told me that with the posterior repair, it'll feel like it did before children....and it did.

Needless to say, my orgasm is still there - (and may even be better than it was!)

orgasm after hysterectomy???

okay you all tell me this......but I have been surfing the web and most medical site says no uterus = no uterine orgasm. All that is left is the lesser clitoral orgasm. I am VERY upset by what I have read. What is the deal. All you ladies who say you still got it, did you have more than one type before your hysterectomy, and did you keep your cervix?

orgasm after hysterectomy???

It has been almost a year since my hyster. and for me, sex after surgery was a completely new introduction to sex. It is MUCH better post op that it ever was before surgery, for me anyways. My cervix always "got in the way" and I found it very painful. Now, no cervix, no pain. Is not something that is easy to explain, orgasms are the same...but different. One thing I did notice was that the vaginal cuff was very tender for MONTHS after I was given the OK to resume sex. Was not painful, just required a yellow light kind of attitude.

Best wishes to all of you on your way to the castle!

Hi Coco,
The answer is YES! I would tend to listen to the voice of experience of your sisters over what you've read on the internet. For me, I was having chronic pelvic pain & thought all was well. I didn't realize until I had my hys. (lost cervix, kept ovaries) that all was not completely well. Sex has gotten so much better without the pain. I had an anterior repair & agree with the sister who said it is like pre-kids. For my husband & I, it's been like we're on a honeymoon again which says a lot as we've been together over 24 years. I wish you the best of luck!

I already love you ladies!

We can send a MAN to the moon but medical science can't figure out the female orgasm? Geesh!

I feel better. Does it matter if I get rid of the cervix. I'd assume get rid of that old future cancer box too!

Is it a wait and see thing, or do most women still have great orgasms?
I mulled over the sexual dysfunction post site.....very depressing. All you newbies DONT GO THERE!
