cervix or no cervix!!

Okay, so surgery is scheduled for tomorrow at 2pm and just when I think things are getting under controll...I get a call from my regular GYN, first of all complaining that she is not involved in my surgery, whatever, like I need to hear this right now!! So she questioned why I was keeping my cervix and I said why not?? I thought it was a good thing to keep my cervix but she said there is a chance of bleeding and having a period and I am not sure if changes sex at all??

Your input would be greatly appreciated!!

Re: cervix or no cervix!!

Mini periods can occur if one keeps the cervix and at least one ovary. The cervix is not a separate organ but is the neck of the uterus. Thus, endometrial lining can be left with the cervical portion of the uterus. Additionally, issues that affect the upper portion of the uterus may also affect the cervical portion.

There is a lot of controversy regarding the cervix and you will find women and doctors with strong opinions on both sides of the issue.

Personally, my cervix was affected by my endometriosis so I had no choice about keeping it--it was already part of the problem. I have not missed it in the least and I just passed by 11th hysterversary. Sex is find, pelvic support is fine, vaginal moisture is fine, etc. etc. etc. Having both had and not had a cervix, if I had to make the decision all over again and did have a choice, I believe I would still have my complete uterus with cervix removed.

In the end, you have to weigh your own pros and cons and do what is best for you. Having a second opinion is a wise idea and remember that there are risks for any choice so you must be comfortable with the reasons for your own decision.
