Hysterectomy and Sexual Functioning
Most women who have a hysterectomy will have a better sex life than they did before. This was the conclusion of researchers who surveyed 1,101 women before and after they had a hysterectomy. After the hysterectomy, fewer women reported pain during intercourse, vaginal dryness, and low sex drive. The percentage of women who had regular sexual intercourse increased from 70% before hysterectomy to 77% after hysterectomy.
