Yes, she can.

No, I am not a doctor, but I had a total hysterectomy in 2003.  STDs don't infect just the organs - they can infect the other tissues in the vagina.

Some of these are about HPV, but I wanted to give you a sample of how you can still get any std after a hysterectomy.

And if you are so sure, why did you ask me?

No I am not a doctor. I went to the doctor (whom I have gone to for years) to be checked because I found the pill bottles that was prescribed to my husband and its was for Chlamydia, the same doctor that performed my complete hysterectomy 19 years ago informed me that I can't get chlamydia, and I took the test anyways and it came back negative. U should not give false information because when you do that you cause problems for peoples marriage. I know this cause my husband asked the same question and you replied with a yes
