Our expert says:
Once you have recovered from the surgery, there is no physical reason for a drop in desire unless your ovaries are being removed at the same time. The uterus does not produce any hormones and is not directly responsible for sexual responsiveness (although orgasm sensation may change slightly), removal should not directly alter functioning. However, libido is easily knocked off for other reasons, many of which are psychological (e.g. if you grieve the loss of your ability to be pregnant) so if this does happen, it may be worth thinking about what else could be going on other than the hysterectomy.
