Sex after uterus and ovaries removal

Does anyone out there have good sex after having uterine and ovaries removal? I've only been married 3 years, and I'm 39, and dh is 44, and sex has been good for us, but my surgery is tomorrow. I'm worried I will not ever be able to respond to him again. I have taken some antidepressants in the past that made me sexless. I wonder if that is what it will be like for me. Is there any hope that sex will be the same, or even get better? Recordwoman

A LOT of women report that sex is better than ever for them. Give yourself time after your surgery. Your doctor will work with you to make sure that your hormonal levels are optimal. See you post op!

It was about the same for me after my tah/bso. I still enjoy my intimate times with my DH and I'm almost 7 years post-op now.

I think that it can differ a bit from person to person, so there's no way to predict your outcome. I agree that your dr should be able to work with you for the best outcome

Eveyone is different. I have mainly heard that sex is the same or better for the most part here. I wish the same were true for me to! I continue to have problems with orgasms but not everyone will experience that.
Good luck to you, I am sure you will be fine.

Sex has been great for me!! We don't have to worry about what time of the month it is and if I'm bleeding so it's happending more often. When you get the go ahead, take your time and have lubrication on hand if you need it. It took us about three times before we got over the fear that it was going to hurt. It didn't but the fear was there.
