Re: Pre-op

It won't be the death of your sex life. But it will be different afterwards. They are doing lots of stuff to you down there so some things are bound to change. I don't know if you're keeping your ovaries. I kept mine so have no hormone issues. My cervix and uterus were removed. Sex is different but not in a bad way. The only thing I really miss is the strong uterine contractions with orgasm. The big o is still there, but it's definitely not as big. I found that sex post op takes patience, communication and trust. It takes time to get things back on track but you will get it back.

Re: Pre-op

Well I can say at 12 days post op I can't wait to get my complete sex life back. My husband and I have been having a lot of outercourse since my surgery. I had my ovaries taken and am not on HRT as of yet either. I have been having orgasms fine so far. I even have contractions inside! I had my cervix removed as well.....everything is gone on the inside. I have been getting the tingles vaginally that you get when you are turned on and ***** too! I was told these were things I wouldn't feel anymore but do! So far I can't tell a difference in before or after!

Re: Pre-op

I hate that people say things like that. Yes, there is a chance that something will go bad. If you are losing your ovaries it is possible that until you get your hormones balanced you may have issues. Those are the same issues many women have with natural menopause.

From reading these boards, the vast majority of women have a similar or better sex life. If you have been in a lot of pain or bleeding all the time you will probably have a better sex life without these problems.

I have not been cleared for intercourse but I am allowed to have orgasms. My conclusion is that while slightly different they are no worse but I have a much easier time achieving orgasm with external stimulation and have 3 or 4 orgasms in the same timeframe as I used to have one. They are very intense too.

We can't wait to be able to actually have sex.
