I am bleeding after having a patial hysterectomy 6 years ago just started bleeding?

Define "partial": What do you mean by a "partial" hysterectomy? This term, partial, has been mis-used and can be confusing. If you mean that you had your uterus removed, but your cervix remains, that is more accurately termed a supra-cervical hysterectomy. The cervix that is left behind may still have tissue in the canal that can bleed with your cycles. The best way to find out is to have an exam to confirm. ...Read more

Is it possible to have unknown gonorrhoea for 10 years with an only symptom: vaginal bleeding? During hysterectomy dr found me fitz hugh curtis syndr

You may have gotten infected more recently (do not know your sexual history), or perhaps the diagnosis was incorrect (would need more info and records). Why not discuss with the diagnosing doctor? ...Read more

Still bleeding: Hi! It's unusual and generally abnormal to bleed after having a hysterectomy.

I had a complete hysterectomy over 2 years ago and a week ago I started bleeding and cramping. The doctors say nothing is wrong. I'm worried.

I had the essure done several years ago and still have severe bleeding and pain during my period. Would I qualify for a hysterectomy? I am 40.

While a hysterectomy is certainly an option ask your doctor if you are a candidate for endometrial ablation. This is a simple office procedure that can solve the problem in minutes without major surgery. ...Read more

I had a hysterectomy two years ago and hadn't had sex. Two days ago I had intercourse and now it burns and I am bleeding everytime I pee. What could be?

May have UTI...: For your conditions, the discomfort may result from intercourse-related irritation, but it's important to check out if you have infection. If blood in urine persists even after confirming no uti, you need to see urologist to make sure that your bladder is okay.

If still in doubt, see, talk, and work with experts timely.

Best wish. .. ...Read more
