Embarrassing question about cervical mucus

I hope this is OK to ask.... I'm still relatively young, keeping my ovaries. So I figure I'll still be ovulating, and will have different peaks and valleys when I'll be more and less interested in intimacy. Onto the tmi part - I know when I'm most fertile, there is a big change in the amount of....ahem....moisture 'down there.' I was planning on losing my cervix, but was thinking today that I've always heard that referenced as "cervical mucus." Obviously I won't get pregnant after the hysterectomy - but will I also no longer have that surge of ovulation symptoms including the ... Well ... Wetness? (going to go hide in a cave now, lol... So glad I have this site to ask these mortifying questions)

Re: Embarrassing question about cervical mucus

That's a good question and a lot of women ask that. Actually the vaginal walls themselves secrete moisture, so there is more than cervical secretions to provid wetness during intimacy. Day to day moisture might be different but if you have your ovaries you should not have the dryness issue women without ovaries have. Ask anything here. If you have a question, probably others wonder the same thing.

Re: Embarrassing question about cervical mucus

Hi kbid, I had my cervix & uterus removed 13 weeks ago. I still have my ovaries. I notice no difference at all in lubrication since surgery, even during sex. I was concerned about this also and wondered if I'd have a problem with dryness i spoke with my family doctor and she told me the same thing that Greyown said: the vaginal walls secrete moisture. You may still get your ovulation symptoms after the surgery. I still get some PMS symptoms since I'm still ovulating. Please don't be embarrassed to ask any questions you may have. This is your body and this surgery can have a big effect on your life. Knowledge is power and it's really helpful to be prepared.

Ask away, Kbid!

I appreciated the answers to this question, too.

I find that people often ask questions I wasn't even thinking about, but the answers are always helpful and informative - and sometimes funny!

Re: Embarrassing question about cervical mucus

Thank you, all! Way back in the day when we were trying to conceive, they talked all about the different kinds of lubrication, and how it changed during fertile windows. I was wondering too if that still remains even without a cervix... The "egg white" mucus and all that stuff, that comes and goes with cycle... I appreciate all your input.

Re: Embarrassing question about cervical mucus

I had the same question after having my uterus removed. I was really confused as to where the vaginal fluid comes from it the top was sealed off on the other side of my cervix.

Normally, I would be really embarrassed to ask about it, but I was on pain killers and it was only a little awkward. I asked my doc's assistant and she said she didn't know and to ask the doc. I saw her reaction and chickened out. I think I finally asked on this board.

I still have another question about this but I will start another thread.
