Mini Periods

Did your doctor say if you kept your cervix, that you would not have mini periods?

It seems like from this website, that mini periods are the norm rather than the exception for those keeping the cervix.

Re: Mini Periods

I have gone through three cycles since my LSH and have not even had a tiny bit of spotting. I still have cervix and ovaraies and know when I should be getting my period and yeah...nothing. Spotting was a concern before so I am super glad I don't have any. dr said there would be a 5-7% chance of it happening. Leaving my cervix was the right decision

Re: Mini Periods

You can get mini-periods if you leave your cervix in, but the doctors try to cauterize it so that does not happen.

You will hear more posts from women who are getting them than not. Just human nature. You may only say once - yea no periods, but would probably say many more times complaining that you do have mini periods.

Make the decision to keep your cervix based on your health and what is right for you.

Good luck

Re: Mini Periods

I haven't had any mini-periods. I had my LSH over seven months ago now, and kept my cervix. During what I think was my last cycle (so hard to tell, it wasn't regular for the last 21 years!) I did have just a tad bit of discharge, but it wasn't bloody (sorry if that's TMI). Like marestail said, it will seem from reading here that most women have issues, because most of us who DON'T have any issues don't post as often!
