I had to have a hysterectomy a couple of years ago. I am still bitter that, I am not in the small percentage of women who, go sex crazy after having the procedure. I'm in the personality change, moody group unfortunately.
It's all fine and dandy except, for this AS which causes horrible back pain! I now tend fake my way through sex because no matter what, it makes my back hurt. I've been to many a doctor and there's nothing they can do. I already have pain meds, but I still avoid wanting to have sexual intercourse. Sexual disfunction is a cruel word like, you're dysfunctional when it comes to sex. This term should only be used on men! It seems to fit better. Since I had a fall right after my procedure, it was assumed the pain was caused by nerve damage. Which still sucks. What sucks more is that I'm 28 years old and married. My husband has been pretty understanding through all of this, especially because I'm no longer interested in sex. I feel bad for him but worse for me because I have to suffer. I do what any adoring 1950's Stepford wife would do and let him hop on. Yes, very unromantic. Do any of you have this problem because of AS or something else? Any suggestions? Is there a magical pill I don't know about? Some stretches, at this point I'll try snake oil!
