It's probably not the atucal hysterectomy,I think it's the IDEA of what a post-hysterectomy woman is,that's bringing you down. I'm no pro-and I don't typically recommend them-but you need to start believing that you are EXACTLY what you were before your' womb was removed. I just saw a commercial yesterday for an insertable contraceptive that a woman can get,and it prevents pregnancy for 5 YEARS! Is a woman who has that not just like you? Human beings are very lucky in that we are one of the few mammals on Earth who like to fornicate for reasons OTHER than procreation. And if you think that having the procedure itself is unhot well,a friend of mine sent me a link to an adult' site the other day,and,among other things,it had a woman with ONE LEG doing her thing.Would you trade places with HER(she was hott,btw)? Lemme ask you;can you tell,when you look at a person,if they have an appendix? I can't
