Periods after hysterectomy?

I saw my obgyn today and was told in order to relieve my menstrual cramping the next step would be a laparoscopic hysterectomy.  I had an oblation 2 years ago and it wasn't helping anymore.  I was wondering if i will still get my period, he said he would be leaving my ovaries in.

Don't believe it!!!  I had a partial hysterectomy in May 2010 and I've been having a period every month since then.  I'm so frustrated.  Now the doctor is telling me that since I didn't have my cervix removed, this is the cause to those periods.  He's trying to tell me that bleeding after a hysterectomy is "normal"  I'm looiking for another doctor.

If your uterus is removed then no, you will not have any more periods. How bad is the cramping and does your obgyn know the cause? Having a hysterectomy is permanent. Talk to your Dr about every other option before considering this surgery.   Remar
