I had a total hysterectomy (no uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and cervix) 3 years ago and everytime my husband and I have sex I bleed during intercourse and it is painful. We use lubricants so I am well lubricated. What would cause this and is this normal?
did you go in for your post op visit???? it sounds like your cervical cuff did not heal correctly, if I am right you will need surgery to correct this, You absolutley should not be bleeding or in pain 3 years post op.
thats terminology for what the top inside of your vagina looks like once cervix is removed, they have to suture across the top and make it in a cuff like fashion so as to best replicate the natural vaginal structure. If you lost a portion of those stitches and things didnt heal right ,it would explain bleeding during intercourse
