How is sex after a Supra Cervical Adominal Hyster (or, Partial AH) with BSO?

Hello: This is the first message I have ever posted on a bulletin board! My doctor has also suggested that I have my first (and only) TAH/BSO. I have done some research, looking at the risks and my age (46) as well as my priorities, and I think I'm going to go with a partial adominal hysterectomy (or supracervical adominal hysterectomy).

In addition to liking my cervix, I have read serveral places that it may be better to leave the cervix so that any sexual dysfuntion is minimized (lubrication, orgasm) and my 'ole bladder is snug into my later years. However, my doctor seems resistant to my choice (which really is still evolving).

I'm going to give away my ovaries because of my age and approaching menopause anyway and also for prophylactic reasons. I also plan to be conscientious about getting Pap smears annually or more often if recommended since I will be keeping the cervix.

What do any/all of you think? Been down this road??? What was your decision, and why?

Thanks very much.

Dear Atomic,

Welcome to HysterSisters You didn't say why your doc recommended a hysterectomy, but it's good that you are doing some research on the different surgeries available.

I had a hyst at age 43 due to prolapsed (fallen) uterus. I had some bad paps in the past, and with prolapse, the cervix was part of the problem, so in my case, the uterus & cervix were both removed.

My doc also *offered* to remove the ovaries as long as he was in there After some pondering, I decided to keep my healthy ovaries, since I have no family history of ovarian cancer. The ovaries will continue to dribble out good stuff for me even after menopause, and natural menopause seems like a much better route than instant surgical menopause.

The type of surgery you have will depend on your symptoms AND your doc's level of surgical skill AND what transpires in the O.R. This is major surgery, and you are certainly justified in getting 2 or 3 medical opinions. Only YOU must live with your pre-op symptoms and your post-op results, good OR bad.

Get smart about your symptoms and your options, and make the best choice for YOU. I am sending huge cyberhugs

Hi, Atomic,

The cervix question is a hot topic, and it receives a lot of discussion among Hystersisters. I found these threads in which ladies tell about their personal experiences:

https://www.hystersisters.com/vb2/sho...sm+with+cervix

I'd also like to point out, after reading many posts about post-hysterectomy sexual experiences, that most ladies report satisfactory results after a hyst, with or without the cervix. Those who bled heavily or experienced pain or discomfort with sex often say that sex is better for them after a hyst. I hope this helps.

Best wishes,
Helen
