Ovaries: Ovaries are the sources of hormones of pregnancy and menstrual cycle. When a uterus is removed, many of the symptoms of a period are gone, but not all. The ovaries are still going to cause bloating, tender breasts and even a phantom cramping sensation. Pregnancy can never be ruled out so if you are worried take a test. Likely neg.

Possible tumor: There are several things that can cause an elevation in hcg, the most common test used to document pregnancy. However, this is also elevated in some tumors. I am sure your ob/gyn will be obtaining additional studies and do addition imaging evaluation to find out why.

Why am I bleeding after a partial hysterectomy?

Why am I bleeding after a partial hysterectomy?

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.

What are the chances of me having prolapse after a partial hysterectomy?

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.

If you get a partial hysterectomy do you still have a period?

If you get a partial hysterectomy do you still have a period?

Possibly: Partial hysterectomy, or supracervical hysterectomy, refers to the removal of the uterus but leaving the cervix. Because the cervix can have some endometrial tissue which produces the tissue that is shed as a period, you could have light bleeding when you would normally have a period. It is usually so light a panty liner is more than enough.
