Has it affected your orgasm in any way? How has it affected your sex life?
Excellent question. Before my hysterectomy I had great, earth shaking orgasms. Right after the hysterectomy I could not get any orgasm at all. It was very frustrating because I would be very aroused, but I could not climax. It had been 12 years and I have learned how to climax, but it's not even close to what it used to be. I didn't have problems with dryness until 2 years ago, but that's what lubricant is for. I still have a good sex drive, but sex is just ok now. Please understand that this is my experience and doesn't mean this is how all women react to hysterectomies.

I had one and they took my ovaries and my uterus and lifted my vagina muscles and my bladder muscles, and it was all done through a minor incision through my belly button and a robot. And no, there were no changes for me....

I had a hysterectomy a few days after my 38th birthday. Lost my uterus and cervix but still have my ovaries.
At first, there was no change to my sex life. In my early 40's, I'm guessing I reached my sexual peak because my libido went nuts and I couldn't get enough sex. In my mid 40's, my libido started to settle down a bit and menopause reared it's ugly head.
Now, my sex drive isn't what it used to be, but I'm pretty sure that has more to do my busy lifestyle than anything else. I"m having some issues with dryness but I found something over the counter that works really well for that. Other than that, everything is good. I'm going to be 50 next month.
