Hi Melody,

Lack of libido is fairly common after a hyst, particularly if your ovaries have been removed and you are not taking HRT. I'm assuming that is your situation, right? Have you discussed this with your gyn? Sometimes a small amount of testosterone can make a big difference, but if you aren't able to take any type of hormones beyond the vaginal cream, your gyn might have some other suggestions.

I'm 48 and had my hyst (TAH/BSO) two years ago. I have not taken any HRT since early June last year, although I use Vagifem to prevent vaginal dryness. My libido is certainly a lot less than it was at age 25 ... but the decline had started long before my hyst. I attribute most of it to aging and simply being too tired after a long day at the office. I do find that if I just "get started," even when I'm not in the mood, I nearly always get aroused and achieve orgasm. I'm one who really believes that a big part of sex is mental ... not everyone agrees, I know, but that seems to be my situation.

And it took me quite awhile after my hyst to really feel back to normal. It was probably a year before I really felt great again.

Please speak with your doc about this and see if there are some options you can try. Let us know how you are doing, okay?

Yes i have the same problem. It has been 8 weeks for me since surgury. I have no desire. I'm only taking premin .0652 and have just started using progestone cream that i got OTC. I'm still having some cramping like pains but not to bad. I'm also taking prozac. I really would like to get my desire back. But i had been losing it before surgury too! I'm really thinking that i would like to try a natural hormones. I'm doing some reading up on it and plan to see my dr. soon and ask her about it. I just feel so down most of the time. My dh is great and doesn't push as it is still unconforable to have sex yet since i had repairs done. But i want to have desire back!!! Can any one help?
