vaginal cuff and sex question....


I am a bit confused if all was taken out except your cervix, could you get "mini periods"?

I read that if you kept your cervix you still could get mini periods

also, I read from other posts here that when you have a vaginal cuff, everything comes out rather quickly, but what if you still have the cervix without the uterus, does the same thing happen?

I'm in my 8 week post op and have not had sex yet, (very nervous and so is hubby) and I am still having problems with my incision but would like to know what to expect.

Women who keep the cervix and one or both ovaries can experience a mini-period. Your signature line indicates you had your ovaries removed so you shouldn't have that concern even though you have kept your cervix.

I honestly can't say that I noticed any difference between pre-op sex when I had my cervix and post-op sex without my cervix as it pertains to the fluid that comes out after sex. Here's a link to an article that may help answer your question: Sex - Where does the sperm go after hysterectomy?.

I hope this helps clear up your confusion.

I haven't had any trouble with mini periods, but my doc onlyleft about 3-4 cm of my cervix, to prevent that.

you couldnt have a mini period unless you kept one or both of your ovaries and your cervix.

I have a vaginal cuff and I have noticed that it is wetter after sex. I'v always gone to the bathroom after sex. Now I defiantly have to clean up after but it doesn't bother me. I've also seen post where ladies keep Kleenex close by.

BTW DH does not notice a vaginal cuff nor has he hit it. He said it feels different but in a good way.

Thank you for your replies I would hate to have mini periods after having taken almost everything out. I am happy I am done with pads and cramps
