Question: bleeding after hysterectomy

 mystic67 - Wed Jan 28, 2009 4:23 pm

Thank you for taking my question. I had a complete vaginal hysterectomy in
June of 2008 for a non cancerous condition. Rrecently I have been having
vaginal bleeding after intercourse and spotting that has continued for several
days afterward. I have not had any pain or problems with lubrication etc. Just
the bleeding. What could be the cause. I have heard that their could be a problem
with the way the cuff is healing??
Thank you,

User avatar Hello,
It is possible you are having some hormonal fluctuation that is leaving the vaginal lining thinner and more susceptible to trauma, especially with sexual intercourse. I would discuss it with your doctor, but I doubt it is a healing problem.

Best wishes.
