having a period after LSH??

I had a salmon color discharge for @ 3 days. Then a gush of blood, along with a trip to the ER. MD said all OK. Saw the GYN next day, says all is well, perfectly normal to have some bleeding. Well this is getting to be like a regular period complete with cramps and some clotting. I thought once uterus removed (3/24) this was NOT to happen anymore! Please let me know if any of you sisters have gone thru this. I feel let down by this, what was the purpose of the surgery...

having a period after LSH??

I am surprised that you were never told that mini-periods were still possible after a LSH. I also had a LSH and my doctor assured me that it shouldn't be a problem as he thoroughly cauterizes the cervix to prevent future bleeding. I have read here that it can be done post-LSH, but have never discussed it with a doctor to confirm. You might want to check with yours if this continues.

With the cramps and pain you are having though, I wonder if something more is going on. Please run this by your doctor again and perhaps pay him/her a visit to make sure all is well.

Take care! Let me know what else you find out!

If you have both your cervix and ovaries you can have what's called mini periods every month. The cervix can contain endometrial tissue that will respond to the monthly hormones. My roomate at the castle was in to have her cervix removed (she no longer had her uterus or ovaries) but since she was on HRT she said she got a monthly period that was more "normal" than "mini" since they lasted for about 5 or 6 days.

I had an LSH Mar 12/04. Just had a mini period this week. But it really WAS mini. Just some spotting for a day.
I had some crampy like feelings a couple of days before.

Hope this helps.

When deciding whether to keep my cervix or not my doctor told me pros and cons. One of the pros to keep cervix was it was a shorter surgery due to keeping bladder connected to cervix. Con was possible spotting monthly due to tissues left on cervix as well as possibility of cervical cancer in the future. I had my cervix removed.
