What is a vaginal cuff?

Does every woman having a hysterectomy get a vaginal cuff? Or just certain types of hysterectomies? What is it, exactly? Is it permanent? Thanks.

If your complete uterus is removed, meaning the bottom portion/cervix is removed with the rest of the uterus, then you will have a vaginal cuff to seal the vagina. You can read more here.

I had the LAVH so I have a vaginal cuff and have never had any problems. Actually, I can't tell that I have one in place of my cervix; it has never been an issue for me!

Hi! Here's a link in this site which should answer your question! I don't have a vaginal cuff (haven't had surgery yet), so I can't explain any further, other than to point you here:

I am on the other side of surgery now and my dr. explained it to my DH like this. It's like a sock that the toes aren't sewn up. and the Vaginal cuff is just like sewing up the end of a sock... I thought that was a funny way to describe it....
