Cervix

I just talked to the nurse about my cervix. I wanted to know if it was Cauterized. She said from what she had read on the doctors notes that I had a total that he had to remove most of my cervix cause the Fibroid and uterus was so huge. I still have my ovaries. Then she read more to me and told me that there was some cervix tissue saved. So does this mean I still have a cervix?

Another thing that worries me is women that had there cervix removed did you have any problems being intimate? Not to sound weird but it wont hurt now that some of the cervix is gone will it? I keep thinking theres probably not enough room up there now to be intimate,lol!

Re: Cervix

I had my cervix removed and I have NO problem being intimate. There is room and everything seems to be in working order. Some women do have issues, but for the most part, I don't think the cervix really has a whole lot to do with sex.
I can't tell it is gone, and neither can my hubby.

Re: Cervix

The cervix is the "neck" of the uterus. It is usually an inch and half long or so and hangs down into the vagina. It sounds like your surgeon left some of it so the inside of your vagina should be the same as it was before. My best guess is that sex should be very similar to what it was before if you are anything like me. I never had uterine contractions so everything is the same for me. I hope this helps.

Re: Cervix

sounds like things should be the same from hearing others...my cervix was removed but from several friends who have had cervix tissue remain, it seemingly doesn't change much!

I still have my cervix. I believe you'll be just fine. Our intimacy is still great.
