A Reason to Have a Hysterectomy Should Include to Improve Sex

It is natural to worry that sex will be interfered with or problematic after having a hysterectomy.

But studies should reassure women that if you are having sexual issues, and need a hysterectomy, you are likely to have improved sexual function in all ways.

Many studies show that women are more likely to function better sexually after a planned hysterectomy than they did before their hysterectomy.

More women engage in sexual activity after they have their hysterectomy than before

Many fewer women after hysterectomy will experience painful sex.

Women after hysterectomy are more likely to have orgasms.

Hysterectomy cannot resolve actual psychosocial issues that are not related to gynecologic troubles, so you need to have frank conversations with your gyno on exactly what you should expect after your hysterectomy.
