i've been feeling 'period-y' for a day or two now, and just chalked it up to cycling (kept ovaries). i've never been a calendar gal, i just always kinda knew when to start watching for signs of aunt flow...so i have no real clue when i'm due.

for the past few days i've had that slimy (sorry, don't know a better descriptive term! LOL) clear/pinkish streaky pre-period discharge. last time i went to the bathroom it was brown with red clotty type stuff.

i'm not even four weeks post-op, and i'm already freaking out about getting mini-periods. i knew it was a risk with keeping my cervix and ovaries, but didn't really think about it being a sure thing.

i'm sitting here crossing everything on my body that this goes away and is just a normal part of the healing process.

I came across a blog from a few years back that chronicled the long term recovery from the same surgery and she said her mini-period was very consistent and regular requiring one pantiliner for day, another for night and done till the next month.

I am in my 3rd week of recovery and feeling pretty good. Have had no bleeding at all which they told me I might but I haven't. I am so hoping that I don't have a period anymore. I had my uterus removed and the doctor removed the top part of the cervix but left the part inside the vagina and he told me that only 1 in 100 people have periods so I pray I'm not the 1...

I kept my cervix but my dr. cauterized it reducing the chance of me getting mini periods. He said if I should happen to get one it should be no more than a day and very light. I had my surgery at the end of Oct. and have not had a mini period just the symptoms from ovulating because I still have ovaries as well. Maybe you can speak to your dr about cauterizing your cervix.

Then maybe that is what he did to my cervix. He said he removed the upper part of it but left the other part.

thanks

Re: discouraged

my doctor mentioned shaving it down as far as he could, and i requested that he cauterized it...so hopefully that all happened/worked out and what i'm experiencing is just normal healing process.
