Hysterectomy booked July 13th - cervix questions

From Preparing for Hysterectomy (pre hysterectomy)

Hi, this is my first post here. I am scheduled for surgery on july 13th so not long left to wait. I'm 36 and have a large 10cm fibroid, endo and adenmyosis. It's been a complete struggle the last 8months so I'm relieved to finally get this sorted. I do think the recovery will be easier than the hell I've been living with. I have the most awful pressure, pulling pains, back pain and trouble walking. I bleed heavily for days on end passing fist sized clots. I have tried all the dif medications but nothing helped. I am so concerned that I'll have problems after with intimacy afterwards. My consultant said she will leave ovaries. I was in such a flap I forgot to ask her if I would keep or lose cervix. What is the norm? I know in the long run it would prob be better to take it out too re smears and not having that cancer risk. Does that affect sex being comfortable afterwards? I can not find a definitive answer. Looking forward to a new me fingers crossed :new:
