Libedo crash

Since having a total hysterectomy for OVC. My libedo has been pretty flat.Is the drastic reduction in female homornes related. I am post menopausal and that seem to lessen my passion for passion. But six months since my surgury and I feel that my remaining sex organs are just numb and I have no sexual responses to any thing. Its a weird and dissapointing feeling. What can be done to bring back a normal sex life and does my body still produce estrogen and progestron?

Join the club and I am only 50!!!  Been this way since my surgery, I was 42 at the time.  

If you find something that works, let me know.  They say for women alot of sex is emotional and not physical....well, can't say that I agree.

I'd agree that it is just as hormonally triggered as a man's drive. But more we are more vunerable to low libedo if we are not there emotionally. One of my Doc's said that even after surgical removal of the ovaries the body still produces hormones so I am keeping the faith but I never really had a high libedo even as a young women. Now I am fearing it maybe totally wipped out, se la  vie! Thanks for responding
