Those with cervix and ovaries after hysterectomy: mini periods?

Hello Sisters,

For those of you who have cervix, do you get mini periods?
How often, if so. Is it spotting (need liner) or heavier (pad).

I didn't either. I have seen various studies say between that 5 to 20% of women get mini periods if they keep at least one ovary and their cervix. This article on Mini Periods might help.

Re: Those with cervix after hysterectomy: mini periods?

I unfortunately had a mini-period last month. It was awful-cramps, migraine, bloating, fatigue, the works. However, unlike before surgery, it was incrediy light and short-lived. I wore a pad out of anxiety, but a pantyliner would have sufficed. Mostly, it was disappointing after hoping periods would finally be finished! It was the first time I had bled at all since surgery, and I really only noticed when wiping. However, I kept having phantom bleeding and worrying that I was bleeding all over myself. I am hoping to only have it for a few months until my body realizes it doesn't need to bleed anymore!

I was very disappointed when she told me it was too dangerous to remove.
I know I will lose it if I start to bleed.

Thank you for replying all. I will read the article, thanks for the link.

Yes I kept my cervix and have mini periods every single month. More like little spots but lasts for about 6 days.

I also have the mini-periods. Mine started at around six weeks post op. I only need a pantyliner, if that and it is really, really light. Usually lasts anywhere from 2-5 days.

Re: Those with cervix and ovaries after hysterectomy: mini periods?

I'm 2 weeks past surgery and I have my cervix and both ovaries. Nothing yet, but it's too soon for me to know, and I still have a little bleeding from surgery anyway (I also had a baby a few hours before my surgery so I think some of my bleeding is because I tore).

Where is the bleeding coming from if you no longer have a uterus? My cervix was removed.. will I get light periods?
