Bleeding Partial Hysterectomy
After hysterectomy: If you had a supracervical hysterectomy it is not unusual to have mild light periods, depending on how much endometrial tissue is left behind.

Hysterectomy bleedin: If she just had a hysterectomy, it may just be healing. If she had a hysterectomy a couple of months ago, she may have granulation tissue that may need to be cauterized. If they left her cervix, she can bleed from it. If it has been longer, she need to be evaluated. It may just be due to atrophy (thinning) of the vaginal tissue, but you need to make sure there is nothing significant going on. ...Read more

In either case, you must schedule a visit with an ob/gyn. ...Read more

Bleeding after Hyst.: Should be checked out by your GYN surgeon. The GYN surgeon will do an exam and identify if the cause of bleeding is from the upper vagina, or from somewhere else. Every hysterectomy, unless the cervix is left behind, has a place in the top of the vagina that gets sutured closed and should heal in around 6-8 weeks but sometimes granulation tissue forms which can bleed or spot later. ...Read more

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

Cervix in or out?: If your "partial hysterectomy" means that the cervical stump remains then you need to have your GYN MD check for cervical lesions including a pap smear.

"Partial" surgery: A partial hysterectomy implies, but does not make clear, that your uterus only was removed and not the ovaries. If that is the case, there can be bleeding from granulation tissue or "stretching" of the vaginal cuff post intercourse. Usually the latter is due to low estrogen states in the vagina. See a GYN MD to clarify your situation by examination of the area. ...Read more

Residual tissue: With a partial hysterectomy, there can be some glands left behind in the cervix that still function like a uterus. These are responsive to hormones and can bleed. This could also be a sign of cervical dysplasia (abnormal cells) or infection. I recommend that you see a gynecologist soon to have this evaluated as it can be serious and it is treatable. ...Read more
