Ladies, did your doctor tell you that a hysterectomy would solve all your health problems? Well, you may have learned the hard way, or from other women, that this is in fact not the case. Many unpleasant side effects, such as low sex drive, occur after a hysterectomy and can leave women searching for answers. In addition, about 50% of a woman’s circulating testosterone is lost after a hysterectomy.
Many women also experience depression after a hysterectomy which can also have a devastating effect on sexual desire. Since our sex hormones are located in our ovaries and uterus it’s no wonder these unpleasant side effects occur. If you’re wondering what testosterone has to do with a woman’s interest in sex, the answer is: everything. Testosterone is a natural female libido enhancer. In order to regain a healthy sex drive replacement of the lost hormones is recommended. Certain growth hormone peptide therapies and stem cell injections may also be an option for those looking to enhance libido.
You can’t go back and change having a hysterectomy, but you can do something about the unpleasant side effects. We will help guide you on the appropriate course of treatment.
