No Period After Supra-Cervical Hysterectomy

Does anyone else have this issue? I am not complaining about it, but I have not had a period since my surgery, is this common, will it continue like this or will I end up getting some cyclical bleeding as a surprise one day? It's going to be two months now.

Re: No Period After Supra-Cervical Hysterectomy

Did you keep your cervix? As for me I will be 3 months on September 16th and have not had a period but I had everything removed so nothing there to have a period with so to speak. I am tickled pink not to have a period anymore as I bled VERY heavily for over 4 months!!

Yes, I kept the cervix and ovaries.

Re: No Period After Supra-Cervical Hysterectomy

Spin, I had my SAH 1 week after you and haven't had a period. My understanding is that the chance is slight that there might be mini-periods if the cervix remains. So I'm not surprised by no period.

My cousin had an SAH 6 years ago and has never had any bleeding, either.

Let's keep our fingers crossed, but I think we're good.

BTW, I have had 0 complications with my incision. I think the abdominal cut gets a bad wrap!!

So, for any future sisters reading this, don't feel bad if you must have an abdominal cut. I feel great at 7.5 weeks, and have no lingering effects of the surgery, that I'm aware of, anyway.

Re: No Period After Supra-Cervical Hysterectomy

keeping your ovaries and cervix does not sign you up for ongoing periods, it's just a possibility.

i am one of the ladies that ended up with mini-periods after my LSH. mine didn't start til the third month - i think i had sleepy ovaries after my surgery.

with luck you won't have any issues at all!

Re: No Period After Supra-Cervical Hysterectomy

I had a supracervical da Vinci July 16th and kept my ovaries and I have not had a period since. I had some brownish stuff on the toilet paper a few times since then, and I've had some other yellowish discharge and have worn a panty shield because of that, but no period, and I PRAY it stays that way!

Hello!

The majority of ladies do not experience cyclical bleeding following a supracervical hysterectomy since every effort is made to cauterise the cervix during surgery.

Hopefully, you'll be in that majority!
