Vaginal cuff???

Ok, I have to ask...what is it? I talked to my doc next day after surgery, was on a morphine drip...don't rememeber too much. Is the cuff...just where they sew the top of the vagina where your cervix was? I wouldn't have know to ask and he didn't say anything about it, so how would I know if I have that? Everything is gone except right ovary. Thanks

Re: Vaginal cuff???

You have it then. If you do not have a cervix you have a vaginal cuff. Like someone on here it looks like a tube sock. LOL, cracks me up everytime I read that. Yes it is where they sew the top of the vagina.

Ok, thank you so much, yeah, kinda felt stupid, but I guess if you don't ask, you'll never know.
So, if your cervix would get bumped durning sex, will or can it hurt the cuff? I know that is prob why they tell you no sex til...whatever date, but even after that, I would think that no.1 it would really hurt if it got bumped during sex 2.It would tear easily?
Thanks again, you all are great, and this site ROCKS!

I've wondered about the vaginal cuff, too. When you have a pap test now, does the Dr. do it on just the vaginal walls or the vaginal cuff, too.
