Orgasm after a hysterectomy

trusse posted:
I had a hysterectomy at the age of 40. I still have my ovaries but I cannot have an orgasm or cum. My obgyn is not help full at all and I don't know what to do. I heard about Vagifem but my doctor will not prescribe it for me, Does bioidentical hormone replacement therapy work. I am at my wits end.

Maybe a second opinion would help you.

My ability to orgasm is greatly diminished too since my hysterectomy. I don't have any libido either and don't lubricate normally. When I have an orgasm, it's clitoral (versus uterine). Clitoral orgasms are small ripples compared to the tidal waves of uterine orgasms. To put it bluntly, it sucks! Will your doctor not Rx Vagifem because you don't have vaginal dryness??

No she won't, I finally got my insurance to cover a med device called the Eros clitoral pump so I am praying this helps
