Keeping ovaries--Concerned about possible vaginal dryness =(

I never thought I would be worried about this. For those of you who had TVH but kept your ovaries, did you experience vaginal dryness. I will not be keeping my cervix either. So so so glad I have this place to go to with these type of questions!!

If you are keeping your ovaries and they continue to function well, you shouldn't have a problem with vaginal dryness. Vaginal dryness can be from low or no estrogen.

If you are specifically concerned about dryness for intercourse, again you should be fine since you are keeping your ovaries. There are glands in the vagina that can provide adequate lubrication for intercourse if the ovaries are functioning fine.

I had the LAVH--lap assisted vaginal hysterectomy--over 11 years ago and vaginal dryness has not been an issue at all since my ovaries have continued to function as they should.
