Dr. Shrikhande had a blog published in Rosy discussing painful sex after a hysterectomy.
Painful sex can be a difficult thing to talk about. The millions of women who experience pain during intercourse, or dyspareunia, can have feelings of frustration and embarrassment. It can be particularly frightening for those who experience these symptoms after undergoing a total hysterectomy. Surgical removal of the uterus is sometimes a necessary procedure – hysterectomies are the second-most common surgery for women – but the post-surgery effect on the body can be distressing and disorienting.
While painful sex in the aftermath of a hysterectomy is not entirely uncommon, it is also not something that should be ignored. Some pain and discomfort while recovering from surgery is to be expected, but debilitating pain that prevents you from having a fulfilling and enjoyable sex life is a medical issue. It’s important to know what to expect from sex after your procedure, and to be aware of the signs that something is wrong.
