In brief: Sex after hyst
Hysterectomy removes uterus, so no possibility of pregnancy.
If ovaries also removed before menopause, hormone replacement can help with surgical menopause symptoms (dryness, decreased libido, etc). No effect on orgasms. If hysterectomy done for painful condition or one that interferes w/ sex, sex life may improve after healed. Talk w/ surgeon about recovery time - usu 6 wks before penetration ok.
