Though the cause is likely multifactorial and benign, any type of cancer or malignancy must be ruled out through regular screening. Cancers of the ovary, vagina can still happen even after the uterus is removed. Hence the need for survelliance cannot be overstated. Your GYN doctor can assist you further. ...Read more

MRI of pelvis report said changes consistent with adenomyosis. Is it true adenomyosis will eventually cause heavy bleeding/pain &need for hysterectomy?

Why was the MRI done: Incidental findings like this one are not uncommon. That is why we do not advice doing tests (like MRI) without a clear reason/search for a specific diagnosis causing unexplained pain or swelling.
I would advice you to wait to worry about all the consequences of adenomyosis when you/we are not even sure that you have this diagnosis! (worry when you have a real problem, not in anticipation! ...Read more

I'm having a lot of irregular periods and extreme amounts of bleeding when I have sex. Causes? Affect of fertility? Mom had hysterectomy From keloids

See GYN: If you have had so much problem especially with extreme amount of bleeding after sex, you need to consult your GYN doctor.

I have hemorrhagic cystitis I hurt in my left kidney an bleed bad when I pee I had a hysterectomy. I hurt bad in private what causes this to happen?

Not GYN: While you bring up the issue of the prior hysterectomy, it does not sound like this is the issue. If you have blood in your urine, and your left kidney hurts, then you need urgent evaluation for a kidney infection or kidney stones. When they workup the problem, discuss the prior hysterectomy and make sure they are not thinking it is a contributing factor! ...Read more

I am bleeding after having a patial hysterectomy 6 years ago just started bleeding?

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

Possibly: It is normal to have some light bleeding, i.e. A panty liner takes care of it. This can last for several weeks.
