what is a cuff?

I am scheduled for a lavh on march 15. I was reading the site and the word "cuff" has been mentioned. What is this? do all lavh procedures include this? forgive me if this is a silly question!

I am also having a bladder sling, when my urologist informed me of this procedure I was so thrilled that somthing could be done for a very embarassing problem, that I forgot to ask some important questions like : will I know this thing is inside me?

does it interfere with sex?

If anybody has any answers for me please help me out, Im kind od feeling like Im in the dark!!!

what is a cuff?

Hi jj4a,
The Vaginal cuff is the area at the end of your vagina that closes of off to your abdomen. the cervix is attached to the top odf the vagina when the uterous and cervix are removed they need to ... make a "seem" to close it ... Keeps things from falling out of you!

Yes I geuss we all have vaginal cuffs .. sounds like an academy award outfit doesn't it!

No it should not interfere with sex. You do need to wait until your Dr. clears you as it does take a while to heal.

I've seen the "cuff" described two ways. Either as a sock with the end folded down and sewn shut, or as a toilet paper tube folded over and fastened. I always thought the sock explanation sounded better
