Hysterectomy, Oophorectomy, and Sexuality - Our Bodies Ourselves
A hysterectomy can relieve painful symptoms from fibroids, abnormal periods, or cancer. This includes the ability to have future orgasms. In short, research says a hysterectomy is unlikely to impair sexual function. However, your sexual response after the surgery will depend on what nerves and organs are affected during the surgery and what regions previously provided you sexual stimulation.
How to help your sex drive after hysterectomy
You don't say if you had your ovaries removed when you had your hysterectomy. About half of women who have hysterectomies also have their ovaries removed. If you belong to that group, it's quite possible that you're suffering from a lack of testosterone.
The uterus is a hormone responsive reproductive sex organ with important lifelong functions. Hysterectomy, the surgical removal of the uterus, causes many well documented, irreversible, life altering adverse effects. Women who experienced uterine orgasm before hysterectomy will not experience it after the surgery because the muscular uterine contractions that occur during uterine orgasm cannot occur without a uterus.
