Vaginal Cuff?


I am having a LAVH on Jan. 7th. I have read some posts that mention the vaginal cuff. This may sound silly but I am not quite sure what this is. Is this something that is reconstructed after a vaginal hsyt.? I would appreciate any feedback.

Thanks so much!

Vaginal Cuff?

I love the explanation that I heard here....picture your vagina as a toilet paper tube (really!). Then, picture the top of the tube squished flat, and stitched across. Then picture the ligaments that used to hold your uterus in place, anchored to the stitched down top of the tube. Voila...vaginal cuff.

So Dot....that was the VAGINAL CUFFLINK you just gave, right?

I just want you to know that I every time I read the "toilet paper tube" explanation of the vaginial cuff - it just creates such a funny image in my mind!!! It really does describe it well, though. I really have quite a sense of humor, and it doesn't take much to make me laugh!! I can even laugh at myself (now) about walking around the mall parking lot last week for 45 minutes looking for my car!!! My family really teased me about that one on Christmas.

Thanks for all of your great answers!!
