Fundal Dominance Uterine Contraction
This usually has to do with the onset of labor. It is a muscular tightening of the uterus. Contractions are timed from beginning to end of hardening of the uterus (duration) and from beginning of one contraction until the beginning of the next (frequency). A third descriptor is intensity or how hard ...Read more
2nd Stage of Labor: This is from the point at which your cervix is fully dilated (10 cm) and the baby is delivered but placenta is not. Depending on whether it is your first pregnancy or not, it can take minutes to hours but usually less than 2 hrs. This is when you will do most of the pushing and can be a risky time for both mother and baby. Babies can get stuck or the uterus or vaginal orifice can be damaged. ...Read more

Is it safe to masturbate after a vaginal hysterectomy? What will it feel like without uterine contractions?
Masterbation: Masterbation should feel the same. Uterine contraction plays little if any role in the sensory experience of orgasm. Pelvic muscles contract during orgasm to produce the "contractile feel". Less than 3% of all women require the uterus to achieve orgasm as it is clitoral stimulation that "works" . A supracervical hysterectomy may be done if one can only orgasm with vaginal penetration. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

5 wks after novasure, I've lost half my orgasm. Only weak flutter clitoral, but no deep uterine contractions radiating thru body. Will it come back?
Don't know: It sounds like that their may have been some interruption of the nerve pathways post Novasure. Nerves have been known to regenerate or find alternate pathways so I would not give up hope yet that the "full orgasm" experience may not return. Make sure that you are not peri menopausal as declining hormones also can cause your problem. ...Read more

I'm being advised to terminate due to risk of uterine rupture what are your thoughts? The ultrasound shows a small peri sac bleed on the fundal aspect of the sac
Why???: I am sorry...what is the rationale? If there is no fetal heart beat...understandable. Uterine rupture probably will not occur because of a pregnancy. There is no reason to undergo a termination based on the history given. If your doctor is concerned about said pregnancy....see somebody else. You can carry a pregnancy close to term. Chance of uterine rupture is less than 1%.... ...Read more
