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.

Vaginal atrophy: It needs to be clarified whether or not you still have a cervix. If you still have a cervix, then you might be bleeding from the cervix. If you do not have a cervix, then vaginal bleeding is probably related to "thinning" and fragility of the vagina that comes with menopause. In either case, you must schedule a visit with an ob/gyn. ...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

I had hysterectomy on april 3but still having some bleeding like a cycle. Is that normal I gotten two different medicine to stop it and still bleeding?
Possibly: It is normal to have some light bleeding, i.e. A panty liner takes care of it. This can last for several weeks. Usually the bleeding will change to a pinkish/watery discharge as the tissue heals and the sutures dissolve. If your bleeding is heavier than this or if you are having a pain, fever, or foul smelling discharge; I would recommend seeing your doctor to get this looked at. ...Read more
Explore alternatives: The first thing you need to do is to see your gynecologist for an assessment of why you are bleeding. You may have a small polyp in your uterine lining and removing that may be all you need. It may be changes in your hormones and a 2 minute endometrial ablation will fix the prohlem. You may have fibroids. The right choice for you also depends on whether or not you want to have more children. ...Read more

Bleeding after 21 years from a complete hysterectomy. I've been bleeding now for 8 1/2 months its not from my rectum?

I had a hysterectomy on September 19. after 6 weeks my incision is bleeding slightly but there is no gaps anywhere. What can be the problem?
Although the surgical wound should be healed by now the area remains tender and prone to bleeding if there is any rubbing or friction against the incision. If there is no gaping wound, then it will heal itself. Just keep it clean and place a band-aid or a small amount of antibiotic cream in the raw area.
If bleeding continues go back to the surgeon who operated on you. ...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

May be the Depo: Frequent, irregular bleeding is very common with DepoProvera. It usually stops by the time you have been on it for a year but, in a few unfortunate individuals, it continues. You may be one of these few. Talk to your doctor about other contraceptive options that may be better for you. There are many treatment options for frequent bleeding these days and hysterectomy is usually a last resort. ...Read more
