  • I had one last year in May. I am 34 years old with two kids 4 and almost 3. I was diagnosed with cervical cancer at 19 years old, told I could never have kids, never had a period, never took birth control and in 2005 got pregnant. Then after my son, still no period, no birth control-we thought he was our miracle baby :)-became pregnant when he was 7 months old. Had my daughter in 2007 and one year later was diagnosed with cervical cancer again. I decided I wasn't going through the treatments again (very painful) so I opted for a partial hystorectomy. They took just the uterus and the cervix. I was happily having sex within weeks and still have a good sex drive. I still feel like a woman, why wouldn't I? I had a supportive husband too so that helped.

  • I had one 4 days after my 38th birthday,  I'm 46 now and feeling fabulous.  I still feel feminine and sexy and my sex drive has dramatically increased since I hit 40.
