What causes decline in sexual drive and weight loss?

hello. I am a 39 year old female. I had to undergo a hysterectomy two years ago. I have not taken any hormone replacement meds b/c had a bad experience with them, so I'm pretty much going cold turkey with the hot flashes and night sweats...don't reccommend that. But, I have noticed that my sexual drive has declined a lot, is there anything I could do, b/c my husband is really starting to get frustrated? And question number two: I really have lost weight in my butt and I don't know how or why, is there anything I can do or take to get my butt back?

Hi,

If your ovaries had been removed along with uterus then you are lacking estrogen and progesterone hormones, that's why you are experiencing hot flushes, night sweats, dryness, it is advisable to use dairy products, soya bean in the diet more frequently, you can use clitoris for stimulation and lubricants for more pleasure.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
