If you get a partial hysterectomy do you still have a period?

Possibly

Cervixuterus
Partial hysterectomy, or supracervical hysterectomy, refers to the removal of the uterus but leaving the cervix. Because the cervix can have some endometrial tissue which produces the tissue that is shed as a period, you could have light bleeding when you would normally have a period. It is usually so light a panty liner is more than enough.

After having a partial hysterectomy, will I still have my period?

Post hysterectomy

Open-uri20131201-32688-1mlml4v
Sometimes we performed what is called a partial hysterectomy, meaning some remains of the cervix are still present. This can cause bleeding after a hysterectomy. Depending on how much cervical tissue is left behind you can expect some form of light bleeding.

I want to help but I am confused: how are you having periods after a hysterectomy? Did you have a supra-cervical hysterectomy? If so, see your doctor promptly for advice.

I have interstitial cystitis, and I have excruciating flares during my period. Would a partial hysterectomy help? I can't take the pain anymore.

IC

Interstitial_cystitis
IC is a condition of unknown etiology and can be affected by hormonal changes that occur during menstruation. Removing the uterus will not change those hormonal changes. You might check with your GYN about the possibility of endometriosis causing your symptoms instead of IC

I'm 30 & had a partial hysterectomy almost 2yr ago so I dont get a period but my breasts have been tender and experiencing some itching, any idea why?

Ovulation hormones

Open-uri20130106-11876-1c68qjj
Hysterectomy is only removal of the uterus. The ovaries are left in place and for good reason as they continue to cycle producing female hormones. Consequently your body will continue to respond such as breast tenderness, PMS, etc. Also it's been shown that preservation of otherwise normal ovaries results in an additional 7-8 years of life in women under 65.

How can you stop mini periods after a partial hysterectomy?

Post hysterectomy

Open-uri20131201-31713-i45cdv
Sometimes we performed what is called a partial hysterectomy, meaning some remains of the cervix are still present. This can cause bleeding after a hysterectomy. YOur obgyn should examine you to rule out bleeding from the urethra, vagina or from the rectum (ie hemorrhoids etc). You can also ask your obgyn to remove the remaining cervix or to explain to you the medical alternatives you have.

Should I still be in pain after a partial hysterectomy?

Depends

Hysterectomy
If the surgery was within the last 3 to 4 weeks, you could still be having pain from the surgery. Your pain should be getting better with time. If it is getting worse you should see your doctor.

Is it possible to still have children after a partial hysterectomy?

No

Reproductive_organs-womb
Unless you are referring to adopting them. The term partial hysterectomy is generally referred to as removing the uterus while leaving the ovaries behind. This does not allow you to bear children any longer.
