how far up is the cuff

Does anyone know how far up the cuff is???
I'm curious. I have an appointment next week to discuss hrt's and I'll ask then but thought maybe some of u know.

I'm having de ja vu, so I think I may have asked this once already, but don't remember which means your answers will be all new to me, so go ahead and answer again hormonal memory loss. Lol.

LOL! I have memory problems too so you are not alone!

Apparently mine is exactly where my cervix was so there is not difference in vaginal length. Can't say I have taken a ruler to it though!

It is at the top of the vagina, right where your cervix was.

Re: how far up is the cuff

I seem to remember the average vagina is about 3 inches long/deep. Depending on your condition, the surgeon may decide to take some of it and thus reduce its overall length after the surgery. Mine did and now I suspect my vagina is now 2-2 1/2 inches. Since I'm still healing I haven't tested the depth yet, but I'm curious.

I don't know the details on mine, but I have had not issues with sex so I am assuming mine must not be too much shorter. Hubby says he feels not difference.

Re: how far up is the cuff

This could verge on TMI, but before surgery I had self explored, and I know my cervix is just at the very end of what I could reach by myself.

I've explored 2 times since surgery (feeling for the new geography and stictches), and that area is still just barely within reach. So I don't think my length has changed t all. So based on my finger length and how I have to push to feel it, I'd say mine is about 3-3.5" long.
