Afraid to have sex.

I am 3 1/2 months post-op and still have both my ovaries and I am facing a dilemma. I am adjusting to the healing process of my body with my swelly belly along with the itching and soreness at times. The few hot flashes that I get here and there.

The problem is sex. Since I have not had sex in 3 years, due to the constant heavy bleeding, pain, etc. (by the way is the best thing I ever done, and really didn't have a choice), I am terrified.

Here is the kicker, my libido is up a great deal, which indicates that I am ok, because I am in need at all times. But I will be afraid to take action, when that opportunity ever arises. I am not married, and eventually would want to get back in the dating. Of course, I am not desparate and will be taking my time. I don't want anything else to go wrong with my lower extremities. Or any other parts of my body for that matter.

Maybe I'm protecting my body. I don't know. Does anyone have this problem?

Afraid to have sex.

Since you are not married and don't have a man 'breathing' down your neck to 'get busy again' then take your sweet time. If I were single, I would 'test myself' with one of those 'gadgets'...if you know what I mean.
But that is just me...
Go ahead a protect yourself!! Who else will? And once you get into a relationship and tell your Love your fears...he should be fine with it And love you enough to let you control the entire situation.

6 months out. I'm married. Let me tell you-sex has never been better!!!
I had uncomfortable intercourse for years & we spent a lot of time on alternate methods instead. Plain old intercourse now is awesome! (I was able to keep my ovaries too. We took out the uterus & cervix.)
