What is a vaginal cuff?

I keep seeing everyone post stuff about vaginal cuffs...what is that??? I can honestly say that I've never even heard of the term before. I had my LTVH on 11/5 and my dr never mentioned anything to me about that before. Can anyone explain this, and do I have one? Sorry if this is a dumb question

What is a vaginal cuff?

when your cervix is removed, the top of your vagina is sewn to make the vaginal cuff. since you had a vaginal hysterectomy, your cervix was removed.

What is a vaginal cuff?

Jenn, don't feel bad, I didn't know a lot of things till I came here. I had no idea what a vaginal cuff was (post op of course) till I read a post detailing it & how it became a complication for one lady. And repairs like cystocele & recocele, ect. I was totally clueless on these as well.
Knowledge is power, right! I have spent hours reading & learning. There is lots of good resources & articles & they have helped me a lot! I'm sure as I try to get hormones leveled out that it will continue to be a valuable resource.
hugs to you & take care
