A Few Questions....

I had heard about the "mini periods" too and was told they could happen if you keep your ovaries & cervix. without your ovaries, your body really doesn't even know what a period is.

Every woman is different ~ whether it's because of cancer, endo, adeno, cysts, etc ~ we all have to make the best decision for US. If your QUALITY of life is suffering because of problems with your uterus, ovaries, cervix, tubes I think that is more than a legitimate reason to have a hyst IF that's what you feel is the answer.

A Few Questions....

Hi Irene70,

I am a cervix-retaining Hyster Sister.

I had my hyst over a year ago and in my case, I am very glad I kept my cervix. My Dr. thought the cervix helps with future pelvic support and in the sex dept. True for me on both!!

My cervix was sturdy and I had had normal pap smears for years so my Dr and I decided the best choice was to keep it. My Dr. also said that less than 5% of woman get cervical cancer so I thought I had very good odds.

Addressing the mini-period question... I had my cervix cauterized during my hyst and that has prevented me from having a mini-period in post-op. A small percentage of ladies who keep the cervix and one or both ovaries have a mini-period after a hyst. And from what I have read about a mini-period, it only requires a monthly pantyliner.

I guess on the cervx question, I think, if it isn't broken why fix it?? Discuss the cervix question with your Dr. and you will make a good choice for yourself. I do not regret one second leaving mine.

Best wishes,
