Topic Overview

Many women are concerned about the effect a
hysterectomy may have on their ability to enjoy sexual
relationships.

Before your surgery, talk with your partner about your
concerns about sex after your hysterectomy. Find out about your partner's
feelings. Discuss ways to handle problems if they occur after surgery. Ask your
partner to come to your appointment with you.

Sexual response is different for every woman. Some women may notice a change in their sexual response after a hysterectomy. Discuss your fears and concerns
with your doctor. For more information, see the topic Sexual Problems in
