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

Possibly: 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. ...Read more

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

Post hysterectomy: 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. ...Read more

Supra-cervical?: 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. ...Read more

How can you stop mini periods after a partial hysterectomy?

Post hysterectomy: 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. ...Read more

Pelvic cramps: Partial hysterectomy means you still have an ovary or two, but no uterus. Therefore, your uterus isn't causing the pain. You might have some adhesions that sometimes form after surgery. Or you might have a urinary tract infection or some sort of gastrointestinal issue. Please see your doctor to try to sort out the cause of your cramping. ...Read more

Ovulation hormones: 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. ...Read more

IC: 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. ...Read more

Seek Evaluation: First of all obviously something abnormal happened 7 years ago to have that procedure at a young age. and this may be related. You could have a cyst or mass for instance on the ovary so it is worth having an exam and likely a pelvic ultrasound ...Read more
