The prevailing view in the literature is that hysterectomy improves the quality of life. This is based on claims that hysterectomy alleviates pain dyspareunia and abnormal bleeding , and improves sexual response. However, we note that almost all the papers we found reported that some of the women in their studies claim that hysterectomy is detrimental to their sexual response. Since clitoral sensation via pudendal and genitofemoral nerves should not be affected by hysterectomy, this surgery would not diminish sexual response in women who prefer clitoral stimulation.
All About Orgasms: Why We Have Them, Why We Don’t, and How to Increase Pleasure
The female orgasm is a series of pleasurable physical sensations and feelings which occurs following, and represents the peak in, sexual stimulation. Orgasm in females is a complex multidimensional phenomenon involving both physical and emotional components. However, not a lot of research has been conducted about the female orgasm and the physical and emotional changes which accompany it are not properly understood. Many authors have attempted to define the female orgasm but as yet there is no universally accepted definition, and those which do exist tend to disagree on the about the relative importance of physical and emotional components of the female orgasm. For the most part, existing definitions fail to integrate the physical and emotional dimensions of orgasm into a single definition.
Most women will experience an orgasm, though it may take practice or experimenting with positions. Feelings of intimacy may enhance orgasms with a partner and, conversely, orgasms can enhance intimacy. After, I love feeling sexy and pleased with my body, that it responds to all these fun sensations and I can reliably get release in the way that I crave. Some of us need direct and sometimes prolonged clitoral stimulation both before and during intercourse. Using a vibrator alone when masturbating or during sex with a partner may help.
