Uterine bleeding: If your uterine bleeding is from a fibroid, consider an emboization of the fibroid to end it. You will need to go to an intervertional radiologist (ir) in the hospital to do this.

Obviously, your previous attempts at controlling the bleeding have not been successful, get a consultation. ...Read more

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

It can also cause burning on urination which many women confuse as urine infection. ...Read more
