Extreme pain in cervix during sex. Scheduled for hysterectomy. Will removing the uterus lessen the pain?

I am 42 years old and am experiencing pain during sex. I am due to see a specialist due to heavy bleeding and will probably have a hysterectomy . I am unsure about having my cervix removed but am pretty sure that is wear the pain is coming from. If my uterus only is removed will this lessen the pain felt by my cervix? It is definately worse at certain times of the month and I value my cervix for stimulation during sex however the pain is becoming unbearable and I have only been able to have intercourse if I am on top.

hello and welcome,

Sexual link after cervical stimulation is still debatable and also it most of the time leads to uterine contractions and pain after being stimulated.
Removing the uterus may or may not lessen the pain. It is difficult to say it now.
So discuss with your doctor. You will most likely not even notice that the cervix has been removed. Also if it is producing pain, it is unlikely to provide any pleasure and removing it later will be difficult. So just discuss all these issues once and then decide about the best course.

Hope this satisfies your query.
Best of luck for the surgery and get well soon.
Thanks for using HCM.
