I had a hysterectomy nearly 2 yrs ago. I was a little nervous the 1st time, fear of the unknown. But it was fine, no pain... I've experienced no difference, which I didn't expect. Good Luck

I have no personal first hand experience on this, however my mother and mother-in-law both have discussed this very topic with me and I can pass on what I know second hand. My mom said that the only difference for her was that she didn't have the desire as often to have sex and she needed extra lubrication. My mother-in-law said that for a while sex was extremely painful. She saw her Dr and he recommended extra hormone therapy. She used progesterone cream applied vaginally on a daily basis and that helped. Hope some of this is helpful to you.
