Perimenopause After Partial Hysterectomy
Not normal: If you had a partial hysterectomy (uterus only removed and ovaries/tubes left in) 20 years ago and are now having vaginal bleeding, you need to have it investigated as this would not be expected to occur at this stage of life. See your usual doctor to discuss. If he/she is unable to assess, then request referral to an ob/gyn physician. ...Read more
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. If your uterus and cervix were both removed, than any bleeding needs to be immediately investigated. Please contact your surgeon's office to set up an appointment. ...Read more
No: Once the uterus containing the endometrium in total is removed, no. However, in supra cervical hysterectomies whereby the uterus is "chopped off" from the cervix, there are cases where some of the uterus containing endometrium is left behind and cyclic menstrual bleeding still occurs. In that instance, the surgeon will get a Pathology report stating that fact, and will retrieve the cervix et al ...Read more
Not unless shortened: There is no impact on vaginal health unless the surgeon resects too much vagina in the process of doing the hysterectomy, if the cervix is removed. "Partial hysterectomy" can mean removing only the uterus and no cervix, or the uterus with retention of the tubes and ovaries. ...Read more

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
Yes: By "partial" do you mean your still have your cervix, or do you mean the uterus was removed but the ovaries remain? It is thought that leaving the cervix intact may help, but even without it, you can still achieve orgasm. Foreplay is important, and the vulva, clitoris, and vaginal walls all play a part. Good communication is helpful. Remember the brain is your largest sex organ. ...Read more
Hot flashes: You mean by "partial" that you still have your ovaries, which will keep working until menopause. You may experience hot flashes or sweating--when everybody else is comfortable, or vaginal dryness. You may experience nothing! There is blood work, but that is more academic--your symptoms will be the main clue--and if you have do symptoms then just go with the flow. ...Read more
Why?: You probably can, but why? Best not to combine elective surgery with medically necessary surgery. What if the rare circumstance arises where 1 complicates the other? If the concern is the downtime or 2nd anesthesia, then I'm not sure it warrents the risk of doing the 2 together. Hope this helps! ...Read more
Depends: If you have had vaginal deliveries, your risk is already elevated for having vaginal prolapse symptoms. A hysterectomy could potentially increase your risk unless the surgeon is very careful to re-support the vagina to the utero-sacral ligaments. If you already have some degree of prolapse it can be repaired at the time of your hysterectomy. ...Read more
Granulation tissue: Vaginal cuff (the area where the vagina was closed after hysterectomy) granulation tissue, or erosion or abrasions of this site can cause the problem. Have a gyn md examine this area and sometimes this can be identified and treated with a siver nitrate stick applied to the area to help it heal. ...Read more
Yes, eventually: A partial hysterectomy removes the uterus, but leaves the woman's ovaries intact. Since the ovaries still make estrogen, the woman will still experience monthly hormonal changes, but no visible menstrual periods. Eventually, at a later time, when the ovaries stop working, then this is considered menopause. Symptoms would include mood changes, sleep disturbance, hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue.. ...Read more
Facelift: Possibly if you can find two surgeons willing to do them on the same day. Be sure to have your face evaluated by a board certified facial plastic surgeon. ...Read more
Ovaries: Partial hysterectomy commonly means the ovaries are left in place. There are a variety of functions the ovaries provide for health protection because of the hormones they make naturally. Ovaries are usually left during hysterectomy in women under 40, variable between 40-50. There are studies that show reduction in health when ovaries are removed in women over 50 as well. ...Read more
Probably not: You should see your doctor to evaluate the bleeding. ...Read more
NO: Please consult with your GYN- bleeding should have resolved by now, unless you are experiencing abnormal female hormonal fluctuations. ...Read more
What do you recommend if I had a partial hysterectomy am now 40 years old will I get perimenopause?
I had an partial hysterectomy and I have had 2 miscarriages in the last month. How is this possible?
It is not possible: Once the uterus is removed, pregnancy is not possible. And 2 miscarriages in the same month is not possible. There are some conditions that give a positive pregnancy even when there is no pregnancy, such as germ cell tumors of ovary or phantom HCG syndrome. If you have a positive pregnancy test and no uterus, you need to see a gynecologic oncologist. ...Read more
I have undergone partial hysterectomy before four years. Now I am having odourlesss colourless fluid discharge. Is there any problem for me?

Menopause symptoms: Studies show that menopausal symptoms resolved after a years. However, some report continued symptoms well into their 70's and beyond.
