A recent study has found that the surgical technique used to perform a hysterectomy does not affect whether or not a woman will suffer from hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). The study followed 258 women and used the Brief Profile of Female Sexual Function (B-PFSF) score to assess the prevalence of HSDD. On a scale from 0 to 35, a score of 20 or less indicated lowered sexual function. Of the 258 women, 70 had abdominal hysterectomy, 34 had vaginal hysterectomy, 36 had laparoscopy-assisted vaginal hysterectomy, 56 had laparoscopy-assisted supracervical hysterectomy, and 62 had total laparoscopic hysterectomy. Statistically, there were no significant differences in B-PFSF score among the five techniques, though some scored 20.
