Should not: The cervix is the opening to your uterus (like the opening of a bottle). Your sex drive should not be affected form a physical standpoint regarding the removal of your cervix. At times, a person may have some "psychological" issues related to surgery, and if you do experience this, be sure to discuss with your dr. Good luck.

Probably not: Many women find that sex is more enjoyable after a hysterectomy. Most women do not experience a decrease in the sex drive after a hysterectomy.
