Decision made!

Just want to start by saying thanks sisters for all the advice. I have made the decision to have the LAVH. I wasn't sure about the "cervix" issue but made my choice of letting it go. I feel well informed and know it's the right decision for me so thanks to everyone who shared. Two more weeks to go.

Re: Decision made!

Hi there, my hyst. is going to be next Wed and I have been given the choice to either keep or remove my cervix, which I have not decided on yet. My main concern for removing it is vaginal dryness during sex! Will you please let me know how/why you came to this conclusion? I am trying to get all the information I can to help me in my decision.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Decision made!

I came to the decision because I don't want to get any sort of period ever again. When I spoke to my doctor he said that 5% of women get a mini period after when they keep the cervix. After weighing all my options and talking to a couple of friends who have gone through the same thing and have had the cervix removed (with no problems) I decided that I just didn't want to take that risk. I know 5% isn't all the high but I felt I would probably be that 5%.

Hope this helps you. As for vaginal dryness, they do have creams for that. Sucks but........

You will make the right choice as well. Good luck and speedy recovery.
