    When you lost your ovaries you lost your primary source of estrogen, so your vaginal tissues are drying up.  Also, you lost your cervix, so your vaginal vault is not the same length.  

    I don't know if you had your hysterectomy due to cancer.  If so, your doctor may not want to prescribe hormone replacement therapy for you.  However, there are other substances that can assist with the rehydration of the tissues in your vagina.  

    I suggest you contact your gyn or gp for some assistance or you can look on line for some additional information.  The ladies on this site are great and should respond to your post, too!  

    Best of luck to you!  Let me know how you do!

    Agree with Lynda, think it would be beneficial to go back to docs and if you can (if no previous cancer) get some HRT.  Well done you for going back to gym and losing 2 stone.  Fingers crossed for you.

    Poor you & hubby, I too had the full job done in March and cannot have HRT - so lubrication is a must... and plenty of it.  I suspect for you it will now be a viscious circle of you being tense etc.. I would pay a visit to the GP and see what can be done for you - hopefully you can return to some normality! Well done you for losing 2 stone, I am struggling to find a suitable diet. I am currently at slimming world but cannot get my head back in the game! xx

      Hey Seon.

      Like you I thought a full hysterectomy (incl ovaries and cervix) was the answer to my prayers after also suffering with huge fibroids...little did I know! Unfortunately I wasnt consulted on what happens to a woman's after ovaries removed so ive learnt through suffering..multiple tests/scans etc not knowing what was going on, and getting amazing advice from other woman. After a long relentless saga over past couple of years I've just started bio identical hormones (via a specialist they match your bodies hormones identically) I wonder if these could help you or if your GP could advice you if they are safe for you? They are not chemical HRT and not available via nhs currently. After only a week I've noticed some positive changes. Good luck with everything. X
