Expert Q & A Answers About hysterectomy and orgasm

I’m a quad woman and I’ve only been able to have an orgasm from manual stimulation. Am I missing something?

I’m a woman and – due to muscular dystrophy – I’m a quadriplegic who uses a ventilator. I’ve also had a hysterectomy. Both of these changes came before I started sexual activity…so I can’t compare “before” and “after.” I’ve only ever had an orgasm from manual stimulation instead of intercourse. That’s great, but am I missing something?

I had a bone marrow transplant and hysterectomy and now I’m not interested in sex. Should I try testosterone gel?

I’m a 45 year-old-woman and recently had an autologous bone marrow transplant for Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma…in addition to a hysterectomy. Now I’m taking some artificial estrogen. However, I don’t feel sexual excitement and I was wondering if I should take a low dose testosterone gel?
