So what's the deal with sex drive 'after'?

Honestly, I don't have a sex drive now. It left a long time ago. Once we get started, it's all good, but I couldn't care less most of the time. Is this the loss of sex drive everyone talks about, or does it get worse????? If so, how? Help! I still want to like sex when we have it, and enjoy it!

Re: So what's the deal with sex drive 'after'?

Hey there Anne!

Very good questions. This is another one of those things that vary greatly from one person to the next. I have read posts of those who began like you with not much interest/drive, then after surgery improved a great deal. Others reported no change, and others felt even less interested. A mixed bag, to say the least. I think it's going to be one of those 'see what happens when it happens' kind of things. That way you aren't expecting one result and be taken aback by another.

I think keeping a positive attitude can go a very long way, and it sounds like you have that!

Wishing you the Best,

You're keeping your ovaries so you probably won't notice a decrease in your sex drive. You may notice an increase in your drive if you are currently having issues with painful sex, lots of bleeding, etc.

I am one of the lucky ones.
I had very little sex drive from all the pain I was in and now that I am healed I have a great sex life. Better orgasms than in the last 4 years...
Good Luck and
