Sex really hurts

I havent had sex in 5yrs and I know now I will never again. I havent had sex since surgery and as matter of fact, I broke up with the man that was waiting so patiently for me to heal. I met him 3wks before I found out I was going to have this surgery [maybe 4] and he has been so very patient. Ive read to much to break my 5yr. streak [more like 5 and a half]....... NO MORE SEX FOR ME. NO THANK YOU.. I wont do it

Sex really hurts

I feel the same frustration. After so many years of painful intercourse, I was looking forward to it being pain free after hysterectomy. No such luck, at least yet. I would be too embarrassed to go back to the doctor and talk about this. Yeah, I know, after two gynecologic surgeries in 6 months and countless other pelvic exams in 8 months, you would think I would have nothing left to hide (I mean at this point, he's seen it all!), but I would just feel so completely awkward discussing this. I practically freak out when he just uses the word "relations."

I'm not giving up yet, but the thought has crossed my mind. I guess I'll give it a few more weeks.

By the way, is this cream only for women who have had their ovaries removed? I still have both of mine.

What cream-try looking at the As We Change website maybe it can help the two of you, their products got me ready again. Mindset is huge in getting your sex life back, so it won't work for anyone who is closed down mentally. Sex is such important part of my life and my relationship that I hate to see anyone throw in the towel. Look at the website and see if you see any solutions that would help. I had TAH/BSO I am using progest. and testo. in topical cream form. I do put some testo. cream on my clit before sex, and it increases the pleasure. I have no ovaries, but fabulous sex.

Luvs2, I too am having a problem with severe pain and bleeding after intercourse. Full penetration has never been achieved either. I am 4 months post op. The surgeon and his nurse told me to use Astroglide for lubrication and use plenty. Haven't tried it yet. I don't think this will help 100%, but I think what the other women have said will. And that is to use the lubrication and go very slowly and shallow. Was told to wait another 2 weeks before trying again. This was because of the bleeding and the Dr. saying my vaginal cuff had to heal better.
