Hi  lisadiebsfeir,

Yes this is a common side effect of women who have undergone a hysterectomy. 

You may find that a water-based lubricant may help with dryness during intercourse. 

Please read this article, it will explain other discomforts that you may experience:  https://www.empowher.com/sexual-well-being/content/sex-after-hysterectomy?page=0,0

Best Wishes,
