As promised my darlings… Here’s why you want to save your womb!!
The Uterus/womb is responsible for so much more than simply housing a baby…
While this job is miraculous and worthy of awe, come closer my love and let me tell you what other wonders exist in this Sacred Space within your own body. Note that the following are functions of the uterus herself not just the ovaries.
It makes you feel good : Your uterus is responsible for beta-endorphins. It affects the secretion of hormones from your brain and the circulation of various hormones in the body
**55% of women experience suicidal thoughts after hysterectomy, 30-41% experience a major depressive episode.
It contributes to orgasm and sexual response: the cervix has many nerve endings which contribute to orgasmic response as well as producing cervical mucus which is a part of the lubrication found in the Yoni during intercourse. The Uterus expands creating sexual tension during arousal and experiences contractions during orgasm. All of which makes sex more pleasurable for women.
** 75% of women experience decreased libido or the loss of all sexual desire after hysterectomy. Many women report feeling less sensation even when they do orgasm.
The Uterus provides organ stability in the body – the uterus keeps the top of the vagina in pace with the cervix serving as a sort of vaginal fixed point.
** 40% of women suffer some degree of pelvic dysfunction post hysterectomy including incontinence, bladder prolapse, bowel prolapse, and vaginal prolapse.
This beautiful and luscious organ is so full of mystery that there is so much we still don’t know… Such as why Hysterectomy increases:
*Risk of heart attack goes up to 33%
* Personality changes
One thing we do know is that even after childbearing is complete the womb is worthy of protection.
Our wombs are valuable because they are part of us!!
