Patient : I am a 31 yr old female with 3 children. I had a partial hysterectomy 2 yrs ago(still have ovaries). For the past few months I have had zero sex drive, sexual desire, etc., also pain with sex and my breasts have been making milk for almost a yr. Doctor checked all hormone levels and everything was normal, not even a high normal. Gyn doctor did physical exam and lab samples of breast milk and said everything was fine. He said that my ovaries were producing eggs on an erratic cycle which was causing all of the sexual dysfunction. He put me on birth control pills and said that it should show some improvement within 2 months. What other things can cause these problems and what other treatments besides BC pills are there?
