Vaginal cuff??

Hello Ladies!
This is a silly question, but what exactly is a vaginal cuff and what would make silver nitrate necessary? I go back to doctor Jan. 16th for her to check mine and to discuss "ntimate relations."

Thanks for responses!

Vaginal cuff??

Hi joywitt,
A vaginal cuff is, the dr. takes a part of the skin around where the cervix use to be and stitches it up so it helps to keeps the bladder and other things from prolapsing. The silver nitrate (I haven't had) but what it is for is to heal the vaginal cuff if it is bleeding a lot and doesn't seem to be healing properly.
I hope that answers your question and that I didn't explain it wrong.
