I had done a hysterectomy last November to remove my uterus and left ovary. I still keep my right ovary. Since then, I find very hard to achieve orgasm during love making. Is this normal or to be expected?  Can anyone help?

Hello sck . . . I'm not sure you realize that you posted in a Lupus forum.

I don't realize! I do not know why it will end up in Lupus forum.

Yes, I can sort of help. Check out Oprah's website. Last week she had a show with a lady on it who was totally only there for women who have had problems like these. I believe she has a book out. Hope this helps.

Hello how are you ? I have had a complete hysterectomy and have had no problems reaching orgasm, I believe female orgasm has nothing to do with her ovaries, she has glands on her kidneys that are responsible, maybe you should talk to your doctor and have your kidney function checked, Good Luck Maggie

Hey sck,

I'm scheduled to have a hysterectomy in late February.
My suggestion is to check out the hystersisters site.
It's awesome!
They have forums for all stages of the hysterectomy process, and I bet there's numerous threads about sex post surgery.
