Itching after Sex

Okay Girls, I'm hoping you can help me out. Besides the fact that I could care less if DH & I have sex due to absolutely no interest in it at all, the few times that we have had sex (just to shut him up) I've noticed that afterwards that I am very irritated and itchy. Is it his semen that's bothering me or is it something else?
I use Premarin for HRT. I haven't really noticed any vaginal dryness and there's really not a problem with penetration if he takes his time with foreplay (sorry TMI), so I'm wondering what the problem is. I'll be bringing this issue up with my Dr. when I see him along with the lack of libido issue, but I was just wondering if any of you have experienced anything like this or if you had helpful advice for me.
I can't believe how much this surgery has affected my sex life and I'm angry that I was never told that this could happen to a woman. I don't know what to do anymore because I want things back the way they used to be. Please help.

Itching after Sex

I am having the same problem, I had a total hysterectomy, my uterus, cervix, and both ovaries were removed. I also had posterior repair at the same time. I thought things would be okay, I felt like wanting sex would be the same. Boy was I wrong I am 7 month post op and I have no sex drive, when we have sex the big "O" is gone. Before our sex life was great I never had any problem having "O" now if I do it is hard to get there and very quick. I am not on any HRT, my choice but I am starting to lean that way if that will increase my sex drive.

Itching after Sex

Hi Hyster Sisters, I am also in the same situation. I could care less about sex and get really upset because to me, it is overrated. Sept 25th will be 1 year that I lost all my female parts and I hate myself for not waiting longer to have my hyster. I'm 47 years old, I've had 5 children and have 9 gbabies. I've have never had any problems before except cramps and after my hyster, no desire for sex at all. My DH is gonna divorce me or start cheating and I know this and try to be better to him but I don't want sex. So I understand your aggravation and desire for help SISTERS. You'll all be in my prayers also. I also take no HRT, my choice. I'm terrified to and not to.

Thank you Curly & Brenda for your responses. It sure does help knowing I'm not alone, but it's not enough.
And Brenda, my heart goes out to you. I don't know your situation but I pray that you & your husband can work your way through this. I've found talking with my husband and sharing my frustrations have been helpful. He at least knows that it isn't him, even though he's not happy with the situation either.
At this point I'm questioning my use of HRT, but will have to see what my doctor says before I decide to quit taking it. I'm hoping when I see him he'll be able to help with my libido issues. I've heard people say testerone helps, so that is my next step.
As always, you're all in my prayers that somehow we'll all manage to get through this and hopefully with our marriages intact. Here's a to both of you. Take care.
