Re: Is it true about sex?

I'm keeping my ovaries, fortunately. But I know that they don't always work after surgery. I'm trying to "think positive" about the outcome, it's been hard, tho' , since I fought it for so long & I'm terrified. Plus people keep asking me why I'm still having it done since the biopsy came back benign. embarrassed to talk about the prolapse part of it, and I don't like the idea of having a biopsy every 3 months & waiting 2 to 3 weeks to find out if there's cancer.
my partner tells me I will be in the 2/3 of women who don't have sex problems after. she's been really supportive, esp since it's been scary for her,too.
Thanks so much for your comments.
I wish you continued healing.

Re: Is it true about sex?

I was worried from day one that I wouldn't have an orgasm.

*warning-graphic content

I felt a bunch of very different sensations in my clitoris as I was healing. I took that as a positive sign but thought maybe it was wishful thinking.

However, the first time after surgery was absolutely wonderful for both my husband and I. As I achieved orgasm I burst into tears of relief!

While I didn't feel the 'whole body' orgasm I used to achieve it is now more intensified and localized making it more powerful.

I feel a slight drop in physical desire but we have our weekly date and it always leads to things that fog the windows.

It's a commitment on both our parts to keep the passion alive. Hey, my grandparents kept it going until my grandmother died....she was EIGHTY THREE!! Go, Mama!
