Re: Confused with why keep cervix over not keeping

Good questions.

A vaginal cuff doesn't hurt once it is healed and healthy. Your vagina may be a little shorter but it shouldn't be a problem, it's very elastic and can stretch to accommodate.

If you're having a vaginal hyster, your cervix will be removed (with very rare exceptions) along with your uterus through your vagina.

I chose to keep my cervix for the shorter recovery, no vaginal cuff to heal. You must qualify by having a healthy cervix--I've never had an abnormal pap. Here is an article about
Keeping Your Cervix. Hope it helps.

Good luck, let us know what you decide after you see your doctor.

Re: Confused with why keep cervix over not keeping

I agree! I have learned tons of info on this site. I went into my dr.'s office wanting this procedure, which probably makes me in the minority! But I knew that I was tired of all the stuff I had been through over the years. I also have been certainly blessed over the years with my fertility so I am done with that. I hope all goes well for you!
