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
