Vaginal cuff?????'s

Hello ladies its your sister trufrend.....

I have a question about vaginal cuffs... Do you need to have a vaginal cuff if you have your cervix removed or is it only for certin hyst procedures???? I have read alot of posts that say they have a vaginal cuff, just wondering if this is standard procedure when having your cervix removed?? Thanks sisters.... Big hugs and many blessings...

If you have your cervix removed they must close off the vaginal opening so that your intestines etc will not fall down into the vagina. The vaginal cuff is like the end of a toothpaste tube or a tube sock. They overlap a little and stitch it closed. It is not anything additional added to your vagina, it is just the way they close it off. Hope this helps. Maybe others will come along and help to explain it better for you.

Downyocean is correct. If your hyst is vaginal, there will be stitches that may dissolve and come out vaginally throughout the course of healing, if it is done abdominally, the vag cuff is stitched inside your abdomen and there will be no stitches seen.
