I was told to imagine an apple sitting on the open end of a drinking glass. The piece of the apple that hangs into the glass is the cervix (and the glass is the vagina). If you remove the apple /cervix, the height of the glass stays the same. So the length of the vagina should not be changed. The vaginal cuff is the sewing of the two edges together just as if you were able to sew the rim of the glass. I'm no doctor but, this was a visual that worked for me. I have had sex with my hubby but could not get a good idea of where the 'end' was. We were very cautious so I couldn't get a good 'read' on it.
Yes, you helped me visualize it also!

Question about Vaginal Cuff?

I went to the MD Thursday for my 6 week post-op. He told me that he doesn't want me to have sex until May 4th. He wants my vaginal cuff to be completely healed. DH was so diappointed because the 28th is 6 weeks, since my surgery. I will keep you posted.

Thank you again ladies
