Hysterectomy and Lack of Sexual Urge

I had a hysterectomy several years ago and since then have not had any sexual urge whatsoever. It's tearing me apart. My doctor gave me a prescription for testosterone cream but it's done nothing for me. Please help!

Sexual Insecurity

  • Posted on: 21 September 2009
  • By: jleff

I haven't dated in many years because I am insecure sexually. I have never felt my G spot (if I have one). I have clitoral orgasms (although not as intense now) by myself, but not with a man. I'm afraid my partners will tell others I'm bad in bed or humiliate me in some other way. Help!

Marriage and Desire Discrepancy

I am 44 and have a very healthy libido. Too healthy! I am in the mood for sex all the time. I have been married just short of 20 years and find myself attracted to someone else because my husband doesn't seem to have the same hunger I do. Any suggestions?

I'm 37 and breastfeeding my 10-month-old baby. I have no sex drive and am wondering if the breastfeeding could be the cause.

Lack of Arousal During Sexual Activity

  • Posted on: 21 September 2009
  • By: jleff

I am 21 years old and have recently been having issues becoming aroused during all types of sexual activity. The drive is still there, however. I am concerned because I am so young and I have never had issues before. I started taking birth control about a year ago and I heard somewhere that this can actually prevent a woman from becoming aroused during sexual acts. Is this true? Also, is there anything I can do?

My question regards ejaculation upon having an orgasm. I am a 46-year-old woman who in the last two years seems to expel a good amount of "fluid" when approaching and/or reaching orgasm. What is this fluid?

My question regards ejaculation upon having an orgasm. I am a 46-year-old woman who in the last two years seems to expel a good amount of "fluid" when approaching and/or reaching orgasm. What is this fluid? It has no odor. Is it coming from my bladder? (I do have slight incontinence.) Is there anything that can be done to control it?

Hysterectomy and Libido Change

  • Posted on: 21 September 2009
  • By: jleff

I am a healthy, young 59-year-old. I had a partial hysterectomy at 42. I had a great change in my libido at the start of menopause at about age 51. I was put on an estrogen and testosterone combination and it helped at least 60 percent of the time. When my doctor took me off of it due to all the new medical information, I was back with my problem again. He gave me a testosterone gel to use every day, but I cannot tell much difference. My husband is very supportive and we still manage to have a very good sex life, but not anything like before. What do I do?

Hysterectomy and a Lack of Orgasm

I am 41 and had a hysterectomy one year ago. I would like to know if that is why I can't have an orgasm when I have sex with my boyfriend. Aside from the lack of orgasm, the sex is quite good.

Emotional Release after Orgasm

  • Posted on: 21 September 2009
  • By: jleff

Two months ago, my very sexually active and pleasurable, but emotionally and physically abusive, relationship ended. My question has to do with crying during or shortly after orgasm. Why do I cry, sometimes to the point of sobbing? Does it have to do with some type of hormonal release? I am 47 years old.

Tipped Uterus

  • Posted on: 21 September 2009
  • By: jleff

It was discovered through an ultrasound that I have a retroverted uterus. My doctor told me that it may cause painful sex. Now I'm worried. I'm 19, a virgin and feeling depressed that sex may always be painful for me. I have always had very painful periods. What can I do to reduce the pain involved with sex?
