I had a hysterectomy with anterior repair 8 weeks ago. At 6 week checkup I was told I could have intercourse. 1st time fine 2nd time spotted. Normal?

I had a hysterectomy with anterior repair 8 weeks ago. At 6 week checkup I was told I could have intercourse. 1st time fine 2nd time spotted. Normal?

Should be OK: Usually we check the cuff (vaginal closure) at the 6 wk check to make sure it healed well & to check for granulation tissue. This is where tissue gets everted and can bleed easily with intercourse. If none was seen & healing was normal, I wouldn't worry about it unless you get increased bleeding or watery discharge. Give it a break for a week and then see what happens. Take care. ...Read more

I had a partial hysterectomy 8yrs. Ago (29yrs. Old). For the last 8mo. I have been experiencing sharp ovarian pain for 3-4 days after intercourse.?

Possible scarring: Sometimes scarring bands (adhesions) form after having surgery. These are often asymptomatic, but occasionally they manifest as pain later on. They can be difficult to confirm, but recurrent symptoms would prompt further investigation.

I would begin with an exam and a sonogram to evaluate for other causes such as an ovarian cyst. If nothing is identified, and the pain persists a DX laparoscopy. ...Read more

I had a hysterectomy 11 months ago. Today after having intercourse with my husband I went to bathroom. I wiped pale pink blood the sex was not rough.

Minor problem: There is probably a simple answer. Some people have atrophy and require some vaginal estrogen. Other times there is a surgical reaction called granulation tissue which can be treated easily in the office. Make an appointment with your gynecologist! ...Read more

I had an abdomina hysterectomy; is it normal for me to have vaginal bleeing during sexual intercourse?

I had an abdomina hysterectomy; is it normal for me to have vaginal bleeing during sexual intercourse?

It depends.: It's important for the surgeon to look to make sure the sutures are still intact. Did they take your ovaries too? If so you may have vaginal dryness and pain. If appropriate this can be treated with vaginal estrogen cream. If just your uterus is now gone your ovaries should still be working and you should not be experiencing dryness and bleeding. Please see your surgeon ...Read more

I had a hysterectomy two years ago and hadn't had sex. Two days ago I had intercourse and now it burns and I am bleeding everytime I pee. What could be?

May have UTI...: For your conditions, the discomfort may result from intercourse-related irritation, but it's important to check out if you have infection. If blood in urine persists even after confirming no uti, you need to see urologist to make sure that your bladder is okay.

If still in doubt, see, talk, and work with experts timely.

Best wish. .. ...Read more

I had a davinci robotic hysterectomy 11 months ago & still have my ovaries. I have been experiencing some bleeding after intercourse. Is this normal?

Difficult to answer: Depends on your age, menopause, you hormone levels from your ovaries. Even without a uterus your body still reacts a same way to hormones which would involve lubrication. If this is less than before friction could cause minor cuts or microscopic lacerations that could explain a little bit of bleeding. LITTLE BIT, if its is significant then check with your GYN. Have in mind I am a Cardiologist ;) ...Read more

I had a hysterectomy 7yrs. Ago. My ovaries are still intact...I have started to spot aftet having intercourse and I have fibroids what is going on?

Not clear: Usually once the uterus is removed there are no more fibroids. The exception is if the uterus is removed but the cervix is left in place rarely a fibroid will grow in the cervix. Bleeding after a hysterectomy can come from the upper vagina or the cervix (if it was left in place). You need an exam. ...Read more

7weeks since vaginal hysterectomy. Had intercourse first time, some bleeding and cramping. Is that normal??

7weeks since vaginal hysterectomy. Had intercourse first time, some bleeding and cramping. Is that normal??

Yes: Not uncommon to see/feel that. Go slowly and be patient. The top of the vagina has been sewed closed so the area is still somewhat raw, resulting in spotting and the act of intercourse can cause cramping. As long as no fever/chills, purulent discharge or heavy bleeding; no worsening of symptoms, then you should be OK. If you haven't had a post-op check, now would be a good time to see your GYN. ...Read more

What is bleeding during intercourse when I have has a hysterectomy but still have my cervix and ovaries. I have no pain.

What is bleeding during intercourse when I have has a hysterectomy but still have my cervix and ovaries. I have no pain.

A few possibilities: Since you are 48 and no longer have a uterus, your remaining cervix itself as well as your vagina, not to mention the external female genitalia (like your labia minora) could be bleeding. Blood could also be coming from your bladder, or less likely, from your rectum. Your partner (? A male) could also be bleeding. In any event, you may want to identify the source and have your doc take a look. ...Read more

I had a hysterectomy with the robotics, and I waited 10weeks to have intercourse. I went numb completely in my vagina after and during my orgasm.

Good & bad news: The good news is that the nerve connections that allow orgasm are intact after surgery. The bad news is that if there is any other pelvic, abdominal or thigh numbness that occurs outside of orgasm your surgeon needs to be notified. ...Read more
