Cervical Cuff ?

I have googled and I still can't figure it out. I had my uterous and cervix removed. I keep reading about a cervical cup, what is it? Is it something that the doctor put in, was it something I already had, lol? Tell me everything about it, what it affects, what it does.
Thank you!

Re: Cervical Cuff ?

A vaginal cuff is created when the complete uterus with cervix is removed. We have an article about it that hopefully will help!

Re: Cervical Cuff ?

Actually, it says, "Creation of the cuff does not usually result in a dramatic shortening of the vagina." If there is any shortening it likely won't be noticeable and everything in there can stretch. We also have an article on that topic!

Vagina -- Hysterectomy Make It Shorter?

If you have concerns, please talk them over with your doctor.

I didn't have any problems with my vaginal cuff. My hubby said it all feels the same.
