Blinking Hell!

This is a bit of a weird one-I had a hysterectomy
with conservation of ovaries and cervix in october
2004. Now however I find that I seem to have a
small bleed every month when my period would
have been due! Tiny mind-but it's odd. I did used
to have some endo and wonder whether it could be
something to do with that?

Was your cervix cauterized during your procedure? Even if it was, there is a slight percentage of women who have "mini periods" after an SAH or LSH. Sometimes there is extra endometrial tissue leftover and that will "shed" on a monthly basis, thus the mini-period. You may want to call your doctor since it's been awhile since your surgery. I believe that they can do a silver nitrate treatment to help you out.

Good luck!

Mini Periods..

I have seen other sisters on here address this same periods....

From what I have read it seems to be caused by some tissue left behind on the cervix?...

Hopefully another sister will be able to come by and give you more information!

Take care,

I've read that they can use a laser to get rid of the endometrial tissue in the cervix. Definitely call your doctor.

It's a mini-period, which my doctor says should subside as the time passes. I've got it too!

Well, according to my doctor mini-periods don't happen! Then I got my "normal" period and they told me that doesn't happen!
Then I got the next one as well, but they are still telling me it doesn't happen! This isn't a mini period, this is a proper normal flow 3 day duration (as it always has been) every 24 days as always. I still need 3 tampons per day plus one for night time.

But even having seen this with their own eyes (oh how I did cringe) they still tell me it doesn't happen!

Thanks everyone for replying to my post!
I'm not in pain I'll leave it for the time being.
But if the bleeding gets heavier (like Kia's going on 3 days)
then I will get it sorted. I'm still glad I kept my
cervix though! It's a bit of a bummer though to still
bleed Grrr!

I like having mine. But, it does mean my doc has got a few things wrong. So now I want a specialist in uterine anomalies to investigate for me.
