    My wife had total hysterectomy in 2015, with removal of ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus. She has no libido and no interest in sex, or even kissing. Is it normal to not have sexual feelings after this much time has passed? She says sees herself differently from most women who still have there “parts.” The last therapist she trusted in making this decision has not been supportive of her post hysterectomy and she has not seen her in over a year. Do you think she has just shut down, emotionally?

    No I certainly hope not. Is your wife using HRT? Lack of both oestrogen and testosterone will effect libido. You sound like a lovely understanding husband. Google HRT and libido after hysterectomy. There is a lot of info to be read, or discuss it with your gp. Finding a counsellor one gels with is hard. It maybe worth seeing a sex therapist.

    Hi why not encourage your wife to post here she will get lots of support and see she is not alone. Pressure for sex and intimacy is the worst thing when you don’t feel like it. She clearly needs time to figure herself out and take it from there.
