Can Cervix be Removed Later On?

I opted to keep my cervix - mainly because there was nothing wrong w/it and I'm not at high risk for cervical cancer.

I'm wondering, however, whether the cervix can be easily removed later on if I decide to (or have to) have it removed. Would this ordinarily be a vaginal procedure?

Yes, it could be removed later, yes vaginally, but I would not call it 'easy' necessarily... maybe for the surgeon. It is still surgery. You would have the incision at the top of the vagina that takes time to heal. Hopefully you can keep it though.

Yes, it can be removed vaginally... it's usually day surgery unless there are a lot of adhesions or endo involved. The procedure is called a trachelectomy. You can find posts from women who have had this done by doing a search for that term on this site.
