I am 31 and had a full hysterectomy in January 2012 due to endometreosis . ever since the op my sex drive is gone but mainly cause i know it will hurt. every time i lightly bleed but the last time was dark and ran down my leg. it is always painful. the doctor said it is normal. i am calling him in the morning about the heavy bleeding. it only lasted a day but the discomfort is still there, more then normal. has anyone else had this problem?
I'm having the same issue. My doc said it was normal too but my surgery was on 7/12/12 I thought maybe I just wasn't healed enough? First time we tried I only spotted and it was darker, this time it dripped down my leg when I stood up and was bright red, the pain is awful, I don't know what to think or do but I'm like you feels like my sex drive is gone. Not that I don't want it but I know it's going to hurt and for a while so I don't want to do it
So sorry ladies ... I don't think there is anything I can say to make this better, so I'm not even going to try.
Sexual issues is my MAJOR fear now that I'm past the surgery. If I end up having any problems, my doctors will have me on their doorstep in a hartbeat and should they dare tell me "this is normal" ... well ... it won't be pretty!!!
I wish you get the answers (and resolution) that you seek ... and DESERVE. Hugs ...
