Should I have cervix removed too???? Should I have cervix removed too????

Should I have cervix removed too???? first surgery was 20 years ago. They removed my left tube, scar tissue, lumps and bumps everywhere! My second surgery was just 5 months ago. They removed my left ovary, more lumps and bumps. Today my third surgery was scheduled for Apr. 17th. I NEED this to be my last, so my question is; my doctor wants to take everything this time, including my cervix. I'm worried that this will effect my sexual desires and my husbands. We have a very active sex life (when I'm not bleeding and in pain!) and I've heard that without my cervix, I won't feel anything. Is this true? Anyone out there that has had this surgery, that can help me make this decision?

Thank you so very much. I'm glad I found this web site today!

Should I have cervix removed too????

I'm having my surgery soon too and have been wondering the same thing. My DR says it wont make any difference, since the women's anatomy has all of it's sensation in the clitoris and first 1/3 of the vagina. When I've asked about this, most women say having their cervix removed has made no difference, saying sex is even better! One said it is less intense.

I'm newly married, and want our great love live to continue.

I'll be watching your post to see what others say.

Good luck and good health!

Cervix removal

I was worried about that too as my GYN told me he recommended cervix removal as I had a fibroid growing very close to the cervix.

I was cleared for "return to normal activities" at 4 weeks post-op. I specificly asked about sex and was told it was OK. The first time I was a bit nervous, but it seemed to feel like normal sex. Since then, it has felt very good. My abdomen can still be tender so we need to be careful, but I think I have to agree that the clitoris is much more important than the cervix.

Good luck to you both!!!!

HeyJude---Welcome to Hystersisters

Love your name--that's one of my favorite Beatles songs.

I was not given the option to keep my cervix because I had past history of dysplasia. Orgasms can be clitoral or vaginal or both. I have noticed a difference in orgasms with my cervix being gone---still pleasurable, but they are different...more shallow, not as intense. The cervix can play a role in orgasm, in that it contracts with orgasm. There are many women, however, who state that they have not noticed any difference with their cervix being removed. Also, I've read over and over that if you have a good sex life before your hyst--you will afterwards as well.

Best wishes to you!

Joselle--youre killing me. I'm only one week post-op and it still hurts to laugh.
I had my cervix removed also, so I hope you all are right--my dh is hoping too. HeyJude--Good luck on your surgery. I have had three close calls with cervical cancer, requiring a cone biopsy and three LEEPs, so the dr thought it would be best to just take everything--remove ALL complications. I feel better than I've felt in years. My dh is just glad to have his wife back. Of course, he actually asked the dr if we could put a drawstring in--I was so embarrassed. Thanks for all the laughs. You all are great!!!!!

Should I have cervix removed too????

I can till you how I feel about it. This was really the only question I had about my surgery. DH was so deprieved 3 weeks out of the month I wanted to make sure that sex wasn't going to be worse for him or me. I had lots of pain during intercourse before surgery, and now I have NONE. Also, my husband is much slower @ making the 1st move. I seem to beat him to it now.

I hope you don't think I'm wild about SEX or that I'm nuts. I'm just glad me & my DH can enjoy each other now without me having pain before, during & after.

Cervix & uterus long gone, kept both ovaries.

I wish you only the best after you recover from your surgery.

Keep us posted.
