alot of questions from an ignorant 26yr old.plese help...

Mountain dew, I wish I could answer all of your questions for you, but some of them I have not had the experience with yet.

1) Do go in and get your estrogen level checked. I am not angry, but I cry at the drop of a hat. My Dr. said that your ovaries have two blood supplies. Since they cut off the uterus supply, it will take a few weeks for them to re-adjust themselves to the different amount of blood and start putting out the same amount of hormones as before. And you can still feel like you have a period because you have them. You can bloat, have PMS, sore breasts. You just do not have the pain from your uterus. And since you kept your cervix, you may also have "mini-periods" where you bleed slightly from the cervix.
2) I had mine done on March 19th, so I cannot answer this question.
3) I do not know about intercourse either. But I can tell you that outercourse is amazing. I was cleared for it today! YAY!! You are right that there are different types of orgasm. Some women only have clitoral orgasms, and for them nothing will have changed. Some women have cervical orgasms (I know, it sounds odd, but my Dr. assured me that it is a form of orgasm). For them orgasm will only change if they have no cervix anymore. Some have g-spot orgasms which also will not change. When you have an intense orgasm, some women also have uterine contractions. This apparently increases the feeling for them. You obviously would not have that ability anymore if you have no uterus. But, there will be no pain from a bad uterus anymore, which for some makes it a lot better than before.
4) 6 weeks is pretty mandatory. Ask your doctor if you think it is wrong. They will give you reasons. Mine told me today that she has had women with their intestines coming out of their vagina because they "blew out" their vaginal cuff. She also has had women with abdominal abscesses because they have pockets of semen that went through into their abdomen and became infected (discovered through lab work). I realize you kept your cervix, but when I had LEEPs done, they burn off part of the cervix (which I understand they do somehow if they leave the cervix as well). The infection risk is high with the open sores there.

Maybe take your DH with you to the Dr. so he knows you are trying to get help with the emotions? He also may be a little more straight-forward with the Dr. about the symptoms he sees that you do not realize are happening. Send him some kind of Thank You gift for putting up with all of it?

I would definitely see my doctor ASAP about this if it were me. Good luck in your recovery.
