Despite fears of what life will be like after a hysterectomy, for many women intimacy actually improves. In a recent survey, 59 percent of women polled feared sex would be less enjoyable after a hysterectomy. Sixty-one percent of women were worried that they would feel differently to a partner after a hysterectomy.
But across the board, the actual experience has been demonstrated to be the exact opposite. The National Institute of Health conducted studies of women after having a hysterectomy and the results show no negative affect on sex drive, self-image, or sexual satisfaction with partner. In fact, in many cases, the opposite was true. The causes for this vary, but for many women, the conditions that exist that warranted hysterectomy may have affected arousal or interest in sex. Treating the condition can help women become more active and get back to living their lives, including enjoying intimacy.
At the end of January 2016, Aziza S. went for an ultrasound to figure out why she was having heavy periods. In all of her visits with her primary care doctor, and a previous trip to the ER, Aziza ever heard the word “fibroids”. In the 5-year interval since the trip to the ER, the fibroids they had detected had now grown substantially.
“I left the ultrasound feeling angry, betrayed and victimized knowing that 5 years of ignorance let my then three fibroids grow from 2cm to 9cm, 4cm, and 5cm with an additional 3cm in the group. In July, I went in for a MRI which revealed 8 fibroids, (double the number the ultrasound showed), 2 of which were showing signs of necrosis. I started investigating places across the country who could do a myomectomy and still save my fertility. By God’s sweet grace I found CIGC.”Learn More
The expanding landscape of fibroid treatments can lead women to choose less effective options that may affect their long-term health, including fertility.
Fibroids are unpredictable. After some treatments, new fibroids can grow again. Depending on a patient’s insurance, or whether or not the specialist even accepts insurance, if multiple treatments are required, it can be expensive. Finding a laparoscopic fibroid expert who specializes in advanced fibroid removal and hysterectomy, who also accepts insurance is important.Learn More
Waiting for treatment for endometriosis can prolong painful cycles, and many women are convinced that the only way to find relief is to pay tens of thousands of dollars out-of-pocket for surgery. Endometriosis excision is the gold standard procedure for treating the condition, a technique that requires extensive training to perform. Selecting an endometriosis specialist is important for a thorough diagnosis, surgical treatment and long-term maintenance, but that can come at a steep cost if the provider does not accept health insurance.Learn More
