Worried about after the surgery

I have been diagnosed with a bleeding disorder. I am carrying my second child currently, but four hematologists all agree that a hyster is my best option after the baby is born. I am concerned about orgasm. How is this affected by a hyster. I am not sure yet what type I will have. My Ob is more concerned with getting me through the preg right now. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Worried about after the surgery

Hi Meaka!

I was real worried about the "orgasm" issue also...I have NOT had any problems in that area at all! I had my hysterectomy almost 2 years ago and everything has worked just wonderfully. Thank goodness!

Congratulations on baby #2!

Take care~

Worried about after the surgery

while some women do have problems after their hysterectomies, it seems that most women do quite well sexually.

(Partly simply because they have less pain and more energy!)

Many say that orgasms are different, some say less intense, some just say different, but fine.....

From what I've read, and based on my own personal experience, I would say it depends on how your body reaches orgasm. Many women have uterine contractions which greatly add to their pleasure - obviously if the uterus is removed, that is gone.
If your pleasure comes from the stimulation of other areas, you'll probably be fine.

one thing that seems pretty common is that even after cleared for sex by the dr, many women find it painful for the first few tries, and then it improves.

hope that helps

Sorry if too personal....

If you don't mind me asking...what type of bleeding disorder have you been dx. with? The only reason that i am asking is because my son has VonWillibrands Disease (bleeing disorder) and I have recently been dx with Hemochromotosis (thickening of the blood)...

The Big "O" is still there (here) *smile*

Hi meaka..
I am sorry to hear your haveing some problems ... You asked about the big "O" after haveing a hysterectomy ... you didn't mention anything about if you were going to have your ovaries removed or not.

I am 4 weeks and 2 days post op ... I had a total hysterectomy, Everything was removed ... In my case I had my uterus, cervix, tubes, and both overies removed. Along with the cerviacl cancer.
The D/H and I have not had the full sexual incounter as of yet.
But the Dr. have us the go ahead with the (oral sex) on my 12 day post op check up .... Well we did it and ((WOW)) all of the feeling's were there. I don't have the cervix, but I felt the orgasm all throughout my body .... miracles do happen

I go in for my 4 week post op appt. today were hopeing we get the green light to actually make love to each other again.
So for for me the big "O" is defiantly still there ...
Best wishes

Bleeding Disorder

I have severe von Willebrand disease and am allergic to DDAVP. The doc's tried months of hormonal treatments and nothing touched the severe bleeding I had. Finally, my hematologist said that a hyster was probably the best option. I have seen three others since and they all agree. There is no need to remove the ovaries or fallopian tubes. The cervix is still in question because of the type of surgery my ob/gyn has discussed with me. I would like to be sure that I am making the right choice and it has been very difficult for me. I am only 23 and do not want to lose the chance for more children in the future. However, I can not live with the bleeding and cramping like I had before. It has been really hard sleeping and not knowing what is going to happen. Thank you all for your comments though.
