I am 44 years old & have a history of cysts & endometriosis. Now that I am over 40 the doctors want to take everything out. They say there is a chance of overian cancer. I don't want to lose my sex drive, my moisture & my mind. Why is it only over 40 that makes them want to do this? I probably have had the cysts for a long time. "Now it's cancer". I just want to be normal in bed!

Hi there, thank you for posting your question. My answer is not intended as a substitute to visiting your own doctor but I hope I can be of some little help.

You will be normal in bed. Hay, stop fretting. Cross each bridge as you come to it. Many women who have had a total hysterectomy have perfectly normal sex lives afterwards. If there are any problems/issues they can be treated as they arise. This is not the end of you sex life my any manner or means.
