Internal examinations and other weird things..

Hi Ladies ,

**warning tmi post**

Just wondering if anyone hasn't had any internals done or any sort of vaginal after care after their hyster ? I haven't and am wondering if I should just as precaution?
My hysterectomy was due to placenta Previa and bleeding out. Ended up with a vertical incision and a prem son. Had total with both ovaries in tact. No signs or symptoms that point directly to early
Menopause (I was 28 at time- now 32.)
I only ask as I have had mild to moderate pressure /ache down there and it's a recent thing . My other symptoms are little to no sex drive , issues occasionally with constipation, severe back pain (medicated for) I also think that I have tummy muscle seperation (which would explain the increase of pain in back with no core being left I guess ). I also have topped the scale at 220 lbs ( actually nearly double what I was prior to pregnancy and hysterectomy).

I get general blood tests every six months to see where I am at hormone and thyroid wise.

I guess I am asking if any ladies out there are experiencing these things or similar, if so how did you go about talking to doctor about them. I'm not one to complain - I mean I'm truely lucky to be alive ... I guess now my quality of
Life is being affected in more then one way.

Re: Internal examinations and other weird things..

I'm sorry you are having issues now. Usually it's a good idea to have a well woman check yearly to discuss symptoms and have an exam to check for vaginal, ovarian (if you have them), breast, hormone, and general female/GYN issues. I see my GYN but I used to see a family practice Dr for my well woman care. I would report all of what you've mentioned here at the visit. I hope you get some answers to your issues, let us know how you are doing.
