Re: are orgasms possible after hysterectomy?

Dear Sara,

As you can see, most women have no problems with orgasm after a hysterectomy, but that's not the case for everyone. You need to go into this with your eyes open, realizing that you could be in the smaller percentage of women who cannot orgasm post op. I have read posts from women who wish they could turn back the clock and not had a hysterectomy.

I'm sure that after discussing this with your doctor you'll make the best decision for you.

Re: are orgasms possible after hysterectomy?

Thanks so much for the replies...
It is reassuring to know that for the majority of women, sex can still be great after the surgery

Re: are orgasms possible after hysterectomy?

Wow! Thanks everyone for sharing, very reassuring. One of my biggest worries, esp since I'm not keeping my cervix.

Let's here it for the big O, the little O , the rolling O, well, you get the idea...

Re: are orgasms possible after hysterectomy?

Yes there is still orgasm after hysterectomy. For me though it really lacks the intensity that I had before. With the uterus gone, I no longer have the strong uterine contractions. This was a big disappointment for me and it's taking a while to adjust. I had discussed this in my pre op visits with both my GYN and family doctors and they assured me there would be little difference. Sometimes the o is still very good and other times it's just a little flutter and that's it. So it's important to know that there is a wide range out outcomes with this surgery and our doctors can give us no guarantees. We need to make the best decision based on our health condition and our doctors advise.

Wishing you all the best.

Re: are orgasms possible after hysterectomy?

I'm 4 weeks post op from a total LAVH. Hubby and I were cleared for "outer"course and I can confirm a big YES to the O question! Looking forward to not having 3 out of every 4 weeks of the month filled with bleeding - imagine the fun my hubby and I will have!!
Good luck with your surgery and good luck with your recovery!

Re: are orgasms possible after hysterectomy?

For myself, no problem with the big feels slightly different, but the best part is that I have no pain with sex as I did pre-histerectomy (all the tumors made the pressure not fun). It gets better and better all the time.

Re: are orgasms possible after hysterectomy?

I was scared to death too. But even though I've only been cleared for outercourse my O is alive and well. I am looking forward to rediscovering my husband when I am cleared. I had do many girly problems before that my husband is anxious to have freedom whenever the mood strikes

Re: are orgasms possible after hysterectomy?

I didn't read all of the previous replies, but from my experience -- YES!!! Very much. I had an LSH, just the uterus removed, and it hasn't been a problem.
