Hi dear,

Sex is just as much enjoyable after hysterectomy as before hysterectomy. Even if there is some shortening in the length of vagina due to surgery, it gradually gets elongated to the size before surgery with intercourse. After menopause there may be some dryness in the vagina due to lack of hormones that were secreted before menopause, but you can take treatment for that from your doctor.
So, i'm sure you can look forward to continue a great sexual relationship after hysterectomy.
Get well soon.
