    Hi Michelle,

    I had my cervix removed in December and they only left the 2 ovaries so that I did not go into early menopause. My sex drive has increased tenfold, I had a very low libido prior to the operation. I was hesitant in having sex but it did not feel uncomfortable at all. I am 42 and wished that I had the operation a lot earlier. And now I am thoroughly enjoying my sex life more than I ever have. I had also heard through a friend that she knows someone else who was the same as me...but I guess not everyone has the same outcome.

    Hi Michelle

    I had vaginal hysterectomy 13 wks ago. I had cervix removed and kept ovaries. I'm 50 slim and healthy.. Don't smoke drink or eat meat but hey here I am with pelvic floor issues 😠

    I haven't tried sex yet as I'm waiting for my lubrication I ordered of a well known website that sell all women's health lubricants. I am aware that some women do not have cervical contractions anymore once they have it removed but to be honest I orgasm externally most of time so it didn't worry me. Some women are no difference at all and still get cervical contractions. I think we are all different but hey before long you will be able to try it out 😋. I haven't tried yet as I need plenty of natural lub to be comfortable.

    I Had to have my cervix out as it was saying hello just at entrance when bearing down😏.

    Hope this helps you xx
