Hysterectomy for Ovarian Cancer
What To Think About
Following hysterectomy, you will not be able to become pregnant. If you have plans for a future pregnancy, talk with your doctor about what other treatments might be possible.
Your doctor will tell you how long you should wait after surgery before having sexual intercourse. If you have pain during intercourse, changing positions may help make intercourse less painful. If you continue to have trouble during intercourse after a hysterectomy, talk with your doctor.
Sexual response is different for every woman. Some women may notice a change in their sexual response after a hysterectomy. Talk with your doctor about any concerns you may have. For more information, see the topic Reference Sexual Problems in Women.
