Hello . I had an partial hysterectomy 2 years ago. Now I am having vaginal bleeding.  Why an what causes this to happen?

Still bleeding: Hi! It's unusual and generally abnormal to bleed after having a hysterectomy. However you stated that you had a partial hysterectomy which may mean that your cervix was left behind and that can cause bleeding. Another reason for the bleeding be that something could be irritating the vaginal incision from your hysterectomy. Either way, I strongly recommend you see a gynecologist. Good Luck! ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. It is unlikely to be cancer, but it still warrants evaluation. ...Read more

Why would i bleeding 20 years after partial hysterectomy?

Why would i bleeding 20 years after partial hysterectomy?

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

I had a partial hysterectomy last year I started to bleed this morning with a horrible back pain is this normal.just uterus removed?

No: If you had your whole uterus removed this is definitely not normal.You need to be seen immediately either at your doctor's office,an urgent care clinic,or an emergency room. The back ache could be because of a kidney stone or a severe bladder infection. If the bleeding is rectal it could be diverticulitis, colitis, or colon cancer. If it is vaginal that is also very worrisome-nothing left to bleed ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Why is my mother in law still bleeding after a partial hysterectomy?

Hysterectomy bleedin: If she just had a hysterectomy, it may just be healing. If she had a hysterectomy a couple of months ago, she may have granulation tissue that may need to be cauterized. If they left her cervix, she can bleed from it. If it has been longer, she need to be evaluated. It may just be due to atrophy (thinning) of the vaginal tissue, but you need to make sure there is nothing significant going on. ...Read more

Bleeding after Hyst.: should be checked out by your GYN surgeon. The GYN surgeon will do an exam and identify if the cause of bleeding is from the upper vagina, or from somewhere else. Every hysterectomy, unless the cervix is left behind, has a place in the top of the vagina that gets sutured closed and should heal in around 6-8 weeks but sometimes granulation tissue forms which can bleed or spot later. ...Read more

I had a vaginal mesh implanted and bleed from time to time.  Also I have no monthly  had a partial hysterectomy.  Wheres the bleeding coming from?

See details: If you had a partial hysterectomy, then you will not get a period. If the cervix was left behind, sometimes it can be a source of blood. More concerning is that you have vaginal bleeding and this is in the setting of vaginal mesh. You need an exam to make sure that there are no vaginal erosions or exposure of the mesh material. ...Read more
