I. Physiological influences
Your sexual desire may be directly influence by reproductive testosterone hormones produced by ovaries and adrenal glands. 4 - 6 weeks after hysterectomy, you will be able to resume your sexual relationship again. Any sexual intercourse before that time will increase the risk of bleeding and infection. For whatever reasons, some women saw the improvement of sexual desire increase while others saw the opposite.
