I have recently been diagnosed with stenosis of the uterine cervix and I think I have hematometra. Can hematometra cause urinary discomfort?

No: A hematometra is a buildup of blood and tissue in the uterine cavity (in your case from blockage of the cervix). Symptoms can range from none to lower abdominal pain and cramping. Many times these symptoms are alleviated by draining the cavity with a d and c.

I was recently diagnosed with stenosis of the uterine cervix. My question is, could this condition cause vaginal discomfort and urinary issues?

Uterine not urinary: A woman with a stenotic cervical os may experience increased cramping with menses, though it also may not if there is enough space for the menstrual blood to escape. Stenosis can usually be treated with dilatation.

Can wearing tight pants cause the uterine cervix to close? What are the non procedure reasons for the uterine cervix to close and how common is this?

No: Wearing tight pants definitely will not have an effect on the cervix. Most common reason for the cervix to clothes or stenosis, is how you respond to inflammation and scarring. More to do with your body chemistry than anything else.

What age group has the highest probability of developing invasive cervical cancer (uterine cervix)?

What age group has the highest probability of developing invasive cervical cancer (uterine cervix)?

Late 40's in US.: The mean age at diagnosis of cervical cancer in the United States from 2000 to 2004 was 48 years. Only 5.7 percent of cases were diagnosed in women age 85 years or older. From 2000 to 2004, the United States age-adjusted incidence of cervical cancer in girls under age 20 was 0.1 per 100, 000, rising to 1.5 per 100, 000 in women age 20 to 24 years, and then ranging from 11.0 to 15.8 per 100, 000 for w.

Further evaluation: Consider further evaluation, possibly a LEEP procedure. At a minimum, repeat pap in 6 -12 months with HPV testing.

The CT scan results came back and it says somewhat uterine cervix is prominent and mild free fluid in pelvis likely physiologic. What does that mean?

The CT scan results came back and it says somewhat uterine cervix is prominent and mild free fluid in pelvis likely physiologic. What does that mean?

Lkely nothing: Most women has some small amount of free fluid in the pelvis and this is normal (physiologic). A prominent cervix on imaging usually means nothing, it is more visible on the imaging study than normal. If there is a problem with your cervix you doctor will make a clinical diagnosis.

Had a total abdom hyst 3 mnths ago. Still have cervix. I'm bleeding. My dr. Says its prob coming from uterine tissue in cervix. Can this be true?

Had a total abdom hyst 3 mnths ago. Still have cervix. I'm bleeding. My dr. Says its prob coming from uterine tissue in cervix. Can this be true?

Yes: About 10% of women will spot or bleed lightly at the time their period would be coming when the uterus is removed and the cervix left in place. So this is normal. I treat this in the office with silver nitrate to the cervix, and that usually works.

Cervical Cancer: The cervix can bleed due to irritation or infection or cancer. The cervix is, anatomically, part of the uterus. I am not sure what your doctor said or if you misinterpreted it. But, bleeding is not normal and must be diagnosed.

Gyno unexpectedly biopsy's cervix for thickend uterine lining says this will come back inconclusive. I will need to put you to sleep and do dnc?

Gyno unexpectedly biopsy's cervix for thickend uterine lining says this will come back inconclusive. I will need to put you to sleep and do dnc?

I think u mean: Gyn biopsied the endometrium, not the cervix, if your gyn does not have the set-up to do this in office, like I do, which is called a hysteroscopy and endometrial biopsy or D&C means it will have to be done in the hospital or maybe u can be referred to someone who can do it in office, I am able to do 99% of those in office with my pts awake, very uncommon today to have to do that in hospital.

Not expected: The cervix undergoes dramatic changes during labor and delivery that often is about to change the architecture of scars and allow continued progression to normal labor, aided by the downward pressure of your baby's head. Scar tissue can also be removed in labor if needed.

What type of catheter is used for uterine cervical stenosis after dilation and how long is it typically left in for? What problem might there be?

What type of catheter is used for uterine cervical stenosis after dilation and how long is it typically left in for? What problem might there be?

Procedure: I'm not sure what procedure your doctor is recommending. It's not normal to leave the catheter in the cervix. Sometimes and angiocatheter is used to pass through the cervix. If your doctor is biopsy in your uterus then they will typically use a 2 mm pipelle.

Had a pelvic exam?: You must have, in order to know about the cervical findings. If the pap & cultures were negative, then you may have a hormonal problem. See a gynecologist for complete evaluation.

I fingered up my vagina and felt uterine tissue coming out through the dilated cervix after a medical abortion @8th gestational week. Is this normal?

I fingered up my vagina and felt uterine tissue coming out through the dilated cervix after a medical abortion @8th gestational week. Is this normal?

Tissue passage: A medical abortion uses a combination of two pills to start the cramping and passage of the fetal tissue that you have already noted. More importantly, you have increased your risk of intra uterine infection by placing your finer through the dilated cervix with its attendant bacterial content. Hopefully, you are also taking antibiotics and will return to the abortion MD for a post abortion exam.

I have uterine prolapse. Can too much coughing cause my uterus to fall so much that I can feel my cervix in my vagina?

I have uterine prolapse. Can too much coughing cause my uterus to fall so much that I can feel my cervix in my vagina?

Yes: Valsalva and cough may make the cervix more easily felt. Certainly in the office as part of a prolapse evaluation I have a patient push down like for a bowel movement and have them cough to see how significant the prolapse is.
