djwith, I am sorry you are having a rough time. You are still early in your recovery so it may take some more time. For me the emotional healing took longer than the physical healing, you may be suffering from depression. If it keeps up please call your dr and let him know about how you are feeling. I hope you get to feeling better soon. Carol

djwith, I'm with you girl, I had a tah/bso so no ovaries. no prescription hormones, trying natural. and i don't have a sex drive either. but then i didn't have much of one before either except right before i started my period (which my dh was thankful for). and now with no period - i guess i'm kinda lost. and having no period has been nice - all that bleeding... so i'm waiting for the natural hormones to kick in. Keep looking forward cause its better than the way it was!!!!

djwith - Sorry to hear you are having a tough time right now. I seemed to have a really tough time around 10 weeks too. I went back to work at 6, adjusted ok, but then got very emotional and exhausted. Hang in there - it WILL get better. It has not been very long for you, and from everything I've ready, it can take closer to 6 months to really feel great. Hugs to you!!!

We had our surgeries on the same day; although both my ovaries were removed. I, too, have no sex drive. DH and I still have not had sex. I "take care" of him so that he doesn't get frustrated - but I have NO interest in sex at all, and I had quite the libido prior to my surgery. DH keeps telling me to be patient, that things will get back to normal, but in the same way that we know our own bodies, I just know the sex drive will never come back. I wish you luck, though.

I'm with you girl! I had my hyster (keep overies) a week before yours. My sex drive seemed pretty good after we got the ok from the doctor but lately, it's gone. We had sex the other day and I was sore for a week, I thought I was lubed ok but I guess I was wrong (TMI!!)!! So the next time I used a little k.y. and that helped.
Luckily, my hubby is very understanding!
Good luck.
