sex after losing it all

I am scheduled for a total hyst. on the 21st of Nov. The Dr. said he is taking everything including the cervix. I have endo., adno and fibroids. I am wondering how will this affect my sex life will my husband know something is missing? Will I be able to have an orgasm anymore? I am so scared I can't begin to take this all in.

It's understandable to be scared. Try reading some of the articles on this site to help.

I also had my cervix removed during my hysterectomy. My ovaries were left in. My sex life is just fine, hubby has no complaints and yes - I still get the big "O"! I can't tell anything's missing!

good luck

I've heard it said that if you have a good sex life before your hysterectomy you probably will have a good sex life afterward.....

From my experience , it is still as good, orgasms too!!!
My DH has no complaints...My only problem now is when I want a break I don't have a excuse anymore

I was a little worried also but it was all for nothing!!!!!!!

I had everything taken out including my cervix and was worried about this too. It seems a bit better when we have sex now because I had a few pains before, not bad ones, and now there is no pain so it seems to be an improvement. I do feel a bit looser but can't tell anything is missing. Everything works fine. I hope the same for you.

Most hysterectomy patients do very well after surgery. This includes return to intimacy, including capacity for orgasm. If it weren't that way, you wouldn't find many women opting for a hysterectomy, believe me.

One thing is fairly certain -- most partners cannot tell you have had surgery. My dh was certainly in this category. Some (((sisters))) say that their partners can tell the cervix is missing -- but even so, it's not a problem for them

That having been said, however -- you'll get everything from "My sex life is better than ever!" to "My sex life is ruined forever!" when you ask this question. There's no way to predict whether you'll have sexual problems after surgery, either.

This just provides another good reason to be certain that having this surgery is really the best option for your health. If it is, then you'll be better prepared to deal with whatever might happen after the surgery. If not, you'll be left with nagging doubts if you happen to end up in the group having problems. Those problems can range from vaginal dryness and lack of sex drive to discomfort (even pain) during intercourse and difficulty achieving orgasm.

Also, remember that knowing that most patients either have as good (or better) sexual lives after surgery does no good if you're in the minority of patients who do poorly.

I'm not saying this to scare you, but rather to give you a realistic picture.

As for me -- it took some time, but my sex life is pretty good these days. It's probably changed forever, but it's not better or worse, just different, and I've had to adjust a bit.

Hope this helps.
