Upcoming vaginal hysterectomy (10/31) but never had vaginal birth

I have read that vaginal hysterectomy is not recommended for women who have never delivered a baby vaginally. I was wondering why this is? I'm due to have this type done on Monday the 31st. I have only one child and he was delivered via c-section. I also had a myomectomy before having my son. So I'm not scared of abdominal surgery. I have had extensive health problems many of which are not obgyn related. However my vagina is one of the few things that still is working fine. Iol please share stories or advice? Thank you ladies!

Upcoming vaginal hysterectomy (10/31) but never had vaginal birth

My surgeon had originally planned to do an LAVH for my fibroids, citing the risks of future cervical fibroids among other things. However, I was also concerned that my small vagina, which had never delivered children, might contraindicate that approach, especially because my uterus was about the size of a 22-week pregnancy. We discussed that at our next appointment, and agreed on LSH; a few months later, my family doctor confirmed my concerns. If you do have these concerns, then I would recommemd discussing them with your surgeon, or even postponing the surgery until you can get a second opinion. Best wishes for whatever you decide!

I have never had children and am scheduled for LAVH 11-10. My Dr. Doesn't think it will be a problem, she said as long as my pelvic muscles relax when under anesthesia she will be able to do it that way. I have fibroids, thick endometrium lining, and a slightly enlarged uterus.

I have never had a vaginal delivery and my LAHV went just fine.
