Is it safe to masturbate after a vaginal hysterectomy? What will it feel like without uterine contractions?

Is it safe to masturbate after a vaginal hysterectomy? What will it feel like without uterine contractions?

Masterbation: Masterbation should feel the same. Uterine contraction plays little if any role in the sensory experience of orgasm. Pelvic muscles contract during orgasm to produce the "contractile feel". Less than 3% of all women require the uterus to achieve orgasm as it is clitoral stimulation that "works" . A supracervical hysterectomy may be done if one can only orgasm with vaginal penetration. ...Read more

5 wks after novasure, I've lost half my orgasm. Only weak flutter clitoral, but no deep uterine contractions radiating thru body. Will it come back?

5 wks after novasure, I've lost half my orgasm. Only weak flutter clitoral, but no deep uterine contractions radiating thru body. Will it come back?

Don't know: It sounds like that their may have been some interruption of the nerve pathways post Novasure. Nerves have been known to regenerate or find alternate pathways so I would not give up hope yet that the "full orgasm" experience may not return. Make sure that you are not peri menopausal as declining hormones also can cause your problem. ...Read more

I'm being advised to terminate due to risk of uterine rupture what are your thoughts? The ultrasound shows a small peri sac bleed on the fundal aspect of the sac

I'm being advised to terminate due to risk of uterine rupture what are your thoughts? The ultrasound shows a small peri sac bleed on the fundal aspect of the sac

Why???: I am sorry...what is the rationale? If there is no fetal heart beat...understandable. Uterine rupture probably will not occur because of a pregnancy. There is no reason to undergo a termination based on the history given. If your doctor is concerned about said pregnancy....see somebody else. You can carry a pregnancy close to term. Chance of uterine rupture is less than 1%.... ...Read more
